Being Positive means never having to say “Why Me?”
Have you ever consciously noticed or ‘felt’ a very positive impression about someone after having met them? It’s almost as though they emit an aura of energy that you can sense not only when they are physically present, but also even when you simply are thinking about them.
For me, thinking, acting and being positive has become a way of life. I constantly search for the ‘good’ in every person, experience and thing. I have become a much more resilient, content, peaceful and happy individual as a direct result of approaching life with a positive mental attitude. This includes reacting to everyday occurrences (good or not so good), meeting others, responding to things I encounter (reading a book, listening to a song, watching a movie, observing nature).
The concept of Free Will plays a major part in this approach, i.e., acknowledging that each of us has and makes a choice about everything in our lives. Every second, every experience, every thought and every action occur as a result of how we choose to ‘Be’.
Hand in hand with positive thinking is gratitude. Internally, I think of the word ‘gratitude’ as a contraction for gracious attitude. It’s all about being thankful and showing appreciation for everything in our lives; indeed, for life itself!
Life is much more worthwhile, endearing and a learning experience when you are able to gleen something positive from it. It is not only more enjoyable and rewarding, but also positively influences others’ impression of you and consequently their attitudes. Why choose to be sad, unfulfilled, depressed or angry when you can choose to be happy? All it takes is a bit of energy directed toward a positive path. I choose to ‘be’ positive and not a victim of circumstances.
Whether consciously or not, we directly create the person, the being and the spirit of who we are, by the choices we make in life, more specifically, the thoughts we have as intelligent human beings.
I’ll share this ‘secret‘ with you here:
Choose to be a positive person and it will e1evate your life. Be well and consider a ‘Pay It Forward‘ approach to life. Everyone has the potential to be positive, for it is merely a choice we make. Got Some Good?
