Today is a new beginning. Even if it feels like the same old thing as yesterday, what matters is the choice you have, and you have choices. You have the freedom to choose a happy day or to be negative and fret and fume. This freedom is a wonderful thing! You can be 60 years old and still make the change. All that matters is the will to make this day special. You have the power within you, we all do.
Three years ago I was miserable. Until I was awoken to the realization that I choose how I feel, no one else does. Not one thing has power over me to have a crap day. Our bosses can scream and yell, our friends say rude things, our parents be controlling and our spouses may be passive aggressive; but in the end YOU have the power to let these things bother you or to move past them and delight in the day.
A way to start this process is gratefulness, remembering the things that have been good to you. Remember the times that a stranger or a loved one was there for you, remember the places you’ve been and try to reflect on your life and look for the positive truths that are resting in the mind. Everyone has a positive experience, it’s just that we allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by the little negatives that seem so huge in the back of our minds. The only way to defeat that is through overwhelming it with a positive outlook. When that negativity speaks say “NO” and say something positive. Counter it at every chance. Resist the liar and speak the truth. Remember today is gonna be good, I can do whatever is set in my way, whatever obstacle is there I can overwhelm.
“you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
