Choose Positive

Is your cup half full or half empty? Do you spend the majority of your time thinking about what is going wrong in your life or do you see the positive in every situation?

Regardless of our circumstances, we always (yes, always!) have a choice to see the positive side of life. If you aren’t used to doing that, it may take a bit of effort to switch your mind into thinking of the positive but doing so will produce amazing results. It actually re-wires your brains to be more positive!

So, make the choice to see, think and speak about the positive side of every situation. Do it daily, hourly. Look for the good. Really look for it.

Here are a few ways to help us do that is:

  • Start your day saying three things you are grateful for
  • Keep a Gratitude Journal
  • Play uplifting music
  • Watch comedies and movies that make you smile
  • Read books that are inspiring
  • Compliment others, especially those who annoy your
  • Go for a walk in nature and marvel at all the miracles around you
  • Say “I love you” to others… and yourself
  • At the end of the day forgive (others and yourself) and then let it go
  • Before you go to sleep, go over the positive things that happened that day

The choice is yours. What will you choose?

The Power of Positive

We all have the power to create positive experiences in our lives.

In each moment, we can make a choice. We can walk away from negative situations and surround ourselves with people who are uplifting. If that isn’t possible, we can send our love and blessings to difficult situations, infusing a positive light into it.

Everything we think, say or do has a ripple effect in our lives and those around us.

We can learn much from a conscious communication practice rooted in Buddhist tradition. Before you speak, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Is what I’m about to say kind?
  2. Is it true?
  3. Is it necessary?
  4. Does it improve upon the silence?

If you can answer yes to all four questions, then your words will resonate with love.
