I don’t know if it’s the weather or something in the water but I’m seeing more and more negative attitudes around me. If it’s not an update or a tweet about how much life sucks, it’s a hopeless response to a simple question.
SNAP OUT OF IT! My favourite quote of the moment:
“You cannot have a positive life with a negative mind.”
If you are going to drag your feet and wallow your way through this amazing journey called life, then it is only going to be negative for you! It won’t ever be positive if you don’t change your mind about it!
If you wake up bleak on a Monday morning because you have an entire week to face and all you want is the weekend, do you know what you do? You change your mind. You think to yourself, “Actually, I’m lucky to be alive today and I’m going to make the best of it. I’m going to notice the beauty around me, the people who make my life worthwhile, I am going to find joy in this day. Just for today, I’ll worry about tomorrow, tomorrow!”
Yes, sure, work sucks, school sucks, studying sucks but, gees, do you not see the opportunities in front of you? If you have a job, do you have any idea how lucky you are? If you are in school or in university, you have the entire world at your feet and you are taking steps toward your future! Make it amazing.
Now, I’m not saying that you never get to be sad, because you do. Sometimes life isn’t fair and we need to be sad about it. Just don’t let it consume your whole life!
You have got to find the magic in your life. Don’t let it pass you by. So snap out of your negative attitude and watch the world with glittering eyes!
