Always Look for Positivity

Always look for positivity. 

Though times may look harder, there may not be smooth sailing,

but never lose heart, let the challenge make you stronger and stronger.

~ Dr Anil Kumar Sinha

Innately I am a ‘the glass half full’ gal most of the time.  Even when down, I feel like a bobber in the water, I may sink, but I also find a way to rise to the surface.  I was talking with someone yesterday about how our challenges make us stronger.  To find the shimmer of positivity in every encounter, in every challenge, and in every moment when you just feel overwhelmed.

It’s not easy to do sometimes.  But it is always able to be done.

That was my message to this special person in my life.  It’s a choice to be sad, hurt, upset and angry or you can choose to find that this challenge allows you to find peace knowing that holding on to what should be is a way of keeping you down and not lifting you up.  It’s hard to ride the winds of change.  It’s not usually easy to navigate, but it can be done and sometimes you just need to ask for help and trust in God.

So that’s what we planned to do together, to weather the storm of change.

How do you deal with change?  Do you put blinders on, shut your eyes and shut down your heart?  Or do you look inside your heart to rearrange the pieces of change in order to organize them and find that perhaps they are helpful overall?

Many are going through challenges now and I understand.  There’s a light at the end of the tunnel for you.  Believe in the strength of positivity and one day you will wake up to see your heart light beaming again in full splendor, stronger than ever before and you will be grateful that you weathered the winds of change in your life for they have challenged you, strengthened you and enriched your life in ways you never thought possible.

Shine On!

  1. Having a positive attitude, living in the present moment, letting go of past worries, and no longer anticipating future problems is my goal. Though, still a work-in-progress, I get closer each day. Thank you for playing a role in this journey with your inspirational and motivational posts.

  2. Am struggling with lots of changes in my life at the moment, so I really needed this. Thank you for helping me find perspective and positivity in the midst of it 🙂
