Pursuit Of Positivity....
BUT-Yes but how hard do we really try? Do we do everything we can in our power to obtain it? Do we pretend to be positive but at the same time we are half way in the negative closet?? Yes we all have our days-can't and wont deny that but how long do we hold on to that negative event? How hard do we really try to shake it off?
Ever have that one friend in your circle that always has a negative story? You stay and listen because their your friend but the negativity is what you don't want to hear over and over. We all so often use the term " I'm falling back from them" but a couple of days later you're back to square one listening to yet another negative story!!
Be sure to know that when one is in the pursuit of positivity-NEGATIVITY is not a short distance behind. Positivity is in one direction, negativity is in the other. It is not possible to do both-it is either one or the other....so what is it going to be??
Now here are a few common sense items that we should follow but do not always apply to keep us on the path of positivity.
1.) Stay away from negative people!!!! (hmmmmm) Make your circle of friends become smaller. I know I know-your saying" we have been friends forever." But if you are thinking this statement then you know what you need to do.
2.) Surround yourself around positive people!!! (hmmmm)
3.) Find something to do that makes you happy and promotes positivity within.
4.) Do NOT indulge in disturbing, conflicting or negative conversation. (Just say NO)
5.) Give yourself a break from the daily news on television. (That is a huge chunk of negativity here) Go online for weather only.
6.) Set positivity goals. (Make them small at first so that they can be reached then grow to bigger positive goals)
7.) SMILE :) (Oh yeah smile away)
8.) Music. (Its doesn't have to be inspirational but let the music put you in a good mood. Something that will put you back at #7!!)
9.) Laugh. (Laughter means something made you happy and you might as well do #7 while you're at it)
10.) If you miss a step go back and start all over. You will get the hang of it soon enough!!!
So now we have some direction to where were going.....so lets Positively Shine in our pursuit to POSITIVITY!
