How to stay positive when everything is negative
Thoughts make you or break you. It’s all about the beauty of one’s mind. It is always a matter of your thought process, that you will see the glass as half empty or half full.
To stay positive one of the most essential thing to do is to first know oneself, love oneself and appreciate oneself. Well you have to live with yourself all the time and you cannot live well by hating yourself. This is a very heart breaking feeling. How will you derive happiness out of life when you can’t derive it first from yourself? Living a happy life is synonymous to loving yourself and then extending and spreading that love and understanding for others. It is very appropriately quoted – ‘to love your self is the beginning of a lifelong romance.’ When self love is generated, a good spirit comes forth that enhances the beauty of his being.
When everything seems to be negative around you it is this goodness of your spirit that makes you glide easily through such bad times. The condition is that you have to become your best friend first and should develop a deep belief in yourself. A man who understands and loves life and humanity never becomes victim of his circumstances. Self love creates a chain reaction of generation of other positive feelings of belief, compassion, wisdom and true spirit.
One should always be creative in life. To be creative is to add some special effects of yours to every task you do. This is the eternal fountain of joy. When you express yourself through the tasks you do. It is the joy of doing. Whether you cook, write, dress up, dance or sing do it the way you like it. This adds lot of optimism and zest to your life.
Optimism is all about being constructive and pessimism is all about being destructive. When you fill you mind with negative thoughts you destroy your peace of mind, your capacity to do things, your inner joy, relationships, health, career and everything. It would be so stupid of us to waste our potentials in this way by just thinking negatively.
Human being is a very capable living creature on earth. He is a storehouse of capabilities that have no end. Through his these abilities he has reached the stars, the moon and to the core of the earth. Many feats are still left to be achieved; but only if you believe in yourself and god that has created you for a purpose. Once you start believing everything appears beautiful and interesting. All things seem bright and wonderful. Even if life is not going as per your dreams you should be grateful for the fact that you are still alive and have the chance to make your wishes come true. It is often said that everybody is imperfect; but I say everybody is just PERFECT. They have been so appropriately made. Each person is playing a different role which cannot be played by anyone else. All that is required is a positive attitude. Life is a combination of two things good and bad. There is no dominance of just one thing. Light follows dark; night follows day, winter follows summer and the cycle goes on in life. Man has such state of mind that he likes change. So life comprises of different stages and phases to make it deep and interesting for the one who has a positive frame of mind. If you delve deeper and analyze your life in terms of the good and bad times, you will see that bad times made you stronger and good times made your memories. We cannot shun our bad times because they are the stepping stones to the good times. Bad times also have the capacity to develop deep bonds and long lasting friendships. Sometimes we are into an illusion of being the king of world which casts a veil of pride and selfishness over us so bad times tear that veil apart and bring about a human side of us to forth. We realize the importance of our loved ones in our lives and also the value of small joys in our life.
Gold has to pass through the heat to become pure and sun has to burn itself to give light. We should always remember these words whenever we are faced with bad times as they are the testing times to test our patience, positivity, will and faith and once we cross that level we come out as a better person. Bad times come to make us Bitter or better, choice is ours. God has given us the gift of life and earth full of resources but it is entirely our wisdom to use the gift correctly or thoughtlessly.
We don’t value things unless they are about to be taken away from us. Same way good times are valued only after we face bad times. Tasty food is liked only after having quite simple food. The importance of good people is realized only after meeting the Bad ones. So facing the rough times is equally important to move ahead in life. They should not be regarded as bad times; but should be counted as life experiences.
One should try to develop a clear heart and pure soul. This makes way to our union with the divine. One should try to communicate with him and tell him everything just like a best friend. God always acts as our true friend and I can say it because I have experienced it. You just have to surrender yourself to him considering him as your ultimate savior. This is the only secret to leading a blissful life. To be with your creator and to have faith in him is the path towards liberation. We humans have the tendency to regret about our past and to be anxious for our future; it is only through devotion to god can we stay in our present moment. Staying in the present moment is regarded as HAPPINESS.
