Think Positive

thinkpositiveI remember not too long ago, I hated to open my eyes in the morning because I knew that life was going to bring me more pain. I hated life and everything about it and always found the negative in everything. I always lived in the problem and not in the solution, I found myself always settlling for mediocrity, never thinking I deserved more, and when I took a step forward in life, it was always followed by two steps backwards. My thinking was not that of an optimist nor was it of a positive nature. I was stuck in a vacuous container of filth, chasing what I thought was life but in reality, just chasing my tail.

I knew I needed to do something. I wanted a change and someone once told me, (and I did not truly understsand nor comprehend) if you want to change, then you must change…How profound I thought to myself!!! I decided to ask people that seemed to have a happy life how they live their day. They told me it was all about attitude, thoughts, and basic decisions and choices. They told me that my thoughts will dictate my actions and my actions will dictate my life!!! I did not think I had a chance, after all, my life was a total mess and I was one foot in a grave and the other one on a banana peel, but I said what the heck and gave it a shot.

I changed my thought process and started living in the solution and not the problem. I realized that what I thought was a normal way of living, was not normal whatsoever, and in fact, it was the furthest it could be from normalcy. I needed to visualize inside my heart how good life can be instead of picturing how bad it was in my mind. I started to come to a realization that I was meant for more and that the mediocrity I was settling for, was not good enough. My choices became better and my decisions were faith based instead of fear based. As my thoughts changed, so did my life. It was like a lightning bolt of electricity was coming at me and I could not get out of the way. I took this man’s advice and it was as if metamorphosis was taking place in my mind. My attitude became better, my sadness became happiness, and I could not wait to wake up in the morning to start living my life the way it is supposed to be lived….

Today, if you feel the same way I did years ago, I promise you that there is a much better way to live. Never look at the glass half empty or half full, look at that glass exploding with all of life’s miracles know that they are all right in front of you. Print out this picture and live these simple rules every day and you too will watch your life transform right before you just like I did……

You deserve more, you are worth more and can become more if you just change your attitude and thoughts…

PLease enjoy your night and be safe..
