Things never seem to go as planned. Life is a true obstacle course and we hit bumps in the road that bring us down. Occasionally we’ll be stuck in that hole of doubt and more junk gets dumped on us and it seems like there is no exit to this misery and we’ll be sitting on rock bottom for months.
However, from experience there is light at the end of the tunnel, I truly believe that every stumble and fall is only a season. So before you go throwing yourself a pity party because your life is much worse than those around you, remember that everyone is fighting their own battles. With that being said, I’m not saying it’s your job to save the world of their problems and forget about your own, but one thing you can do, is be their light. Be an example to those around you, even though your life isn’t perfect, sometimes others need to see positivity. If you can carry a positive and uplifting outlook on life, it can bring strength to others going through a difficult time. Smile through the pain, and focus on the good things in your life. I’m not saying I’m perfect but I’ll let you in on a little secret that’s helped me live a more positive life.
Here’s my secret:
On my way to work, or even getting ready for the day I’ve decided to find 10 things that I am thankful for.
Counting my many blessings, down to the bed I slept in or the soap in the shower, gives me a chance to start my day out with positive thoughts. It puts a smile on my face and I am able to bless others and help change their attitude for there day.
It may sound silly to you, but before you count it off, give it a try! I’d love to hear your thoughts :).
