WALKING ON SUNSHINE

THAT 'WALKING ON SUNSHINE' FEELING IS INFECTIOUS AND LET'S BE REAL, EVERYONE WANTS IT!

NOW I KNOW SOMETIMES LIFE MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE IN A DODGEBALL GAME AND YOU'RE LOSING.... BAD! BUT IT'S IMPORTANT TO BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. IF IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE,

LET IT GO! 

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO POINT IN TRYING SO HARD TO MAKE SOMETHING WORK, WHEN IT CLEARLY ISN'T MEANT TO. TRUST THE PROCESS! THIS CAN BE IN A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT LIFE SITUATIONS; WORK, NEW PROJECTS, SUBJECTS, YOUR CAREER, RELATIONSHIPS AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT - YOUR FAMILY.

KEEPING HAPPY THROUGHOUT IT ALL

IT'S LIKE THAT ONE PERSON THAT'S JUST ALWAYS HAPPY, NO MATTER WHAT - WHENEVER YOU SEE THEM, YOU BET THERE'S A SMILE ON THEIR FACE - AND THIS MUST BUG YOU BUT THE ONLY REASON YOU HOLD A GRUDGE IS BECAUSE YOU WISH YOU COULD BE THAT POSITIVE IN LIFE! 

NOW IT'S NOT EASY TO OVERCOME THE NEGATIVE THAT SURROUNDS US ALL, BUT IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT WHEN YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE LIGHT IN EACH SITUATION, EVEN IF IT'S NOT FROM THE START - HAVE THE POWER TO TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK FOR THE GOOD AND SHARE THAT POSITIVE LIGHT WITH THOSE AROUND YOU. 

REMEMBER - THIS IS YOUR LIFE SO LIVE IT ON YOUR TERMS. 

FINDING THE LIGHT

NOW I AM NOT SAYING THAT EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS SUNSHINE AND UNICORNS - ALTHOUGH I WISH IT WERE! LIFE HAPPENS - DIFFICULT SITUATIONS OCCUR IN EVERYBODY'S JOURNEY AND WE NEED TO RESPECT THAT. IT'S DURING THESE DIFFICULT TIMES THAT IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT TO STAY POSITIVE AND REALLY TRY OUR BEST TO FIND THE LIGHT. 

HOW DO WE STAY POSITIVE??

WELL FOR ONE - DON'T SURROUND YOURSELF WITH NEGATIVE SITUATIONS - PEOPLE, PLACES - ANYTHING THAT DOWNS YOUR SPIRIT. IT'S NOT WORTH IT!

PUT YOURSELF FIRST. AT THE END OF THE DAY - LIVE LIFE FOR YOU. THIS MAY SEEM SELFISH TO A FEW PEOPLE, BUT IT'S THE PATH TO FINDING TRUE HAPPINESS. YOU NEED TO FIND IT WITHIN - IF YOU FIND IT IN SOMEONE ELSE AND THEY LEAVE, WELL YOU CAN JUST IMAGINE THE DAMAGE YOU'LL BE LEFT WITH. DO THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY, AND ALWAYS REMEMBER TO LOVE YOURSELF FIRST. THIS IS A QUALITY NOT ALL PEOPLE HAVE, BUT IT'S DEFINITELY ONE TO ADMIRE

NEVER DWELL ON SOMETHING YOU CANNOT CHANGE, IF IT'S IN THE PAST - LET IT STAY THERE. INSTEAD LOOK FOR DIFFERENT WAYS TO HANDLE THE SITUATION IF IT DOES COME UP IN THE FUTURE

IT'S SO EASY TO LOOK AT THE TROUBLES YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH IN LIFE, BUT IT ACTUALLY TAKES A LOT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE GOOD THAT COMES YOUR WAY. I KNOW IT SOUNDS STUPID, BUT IT'S TRUE.

EVER REALIZE WHEN YOU BUMP INTO SOMEONE WHO ISN'T HAPPY AND THEY WANT YOUR SYMPATHY THEY'LL TELL YOU EVERYTHING NEGATIVE GOING ON IN THEIR LIFE INSTEAD OF THE POSITIVE. INSTEAD OF GIVING THESE PEOPLE THE SATISFACTION - TAKE A U-TURN AND SHARE SOMETHING GOOD THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU, AND ASK THEM ABOUT SOMETHING POSITIVE THAT'S HAPPENED TO THEM RECENTLY (IF THEY SAY NOTHING - DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND WALK AWAY - YOU CAN'T HELP SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE HELPED). THIS CAN BE ANYTHING FROM A JOB PROMOTION, A NEW RELATIONSHIP, FINDING $1 ON YOUR MORNING JOG, A NEW PIZZA PLACE THAT'S AMAZING, A FUNNY PHOTO, SOMETHING NEW YOU TRIED  - ANYTHING THAT PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE. FOR ME IT'S SEEING MY SON (MY DOG), TROY, EVERY MORNING WHEN HE COMES TO WAKE ME UP TO START THE DAY. 

SHARING THE POSITIVE VIBES

I AM URGING YOU TO SHARE A SMILE WITH A STRANGER TODAY, GO FOR A RUN AND CLEAR YOUR MIND FROM THE NEGATIVE, TAKE A SCENIC DRIVE DOWN THE COUNTRY, VOLUNTEER AT YOUR LOCAL RESCUE SHELTER FOR ANIMALS  - ANYTHING THAT WILL MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE THAT YOU CAN PASS ONTO OTHERS AND REMEMBER TO ALWAYS LOOK FOR AND SHARE THE LIGHT!

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR YOUR HEALTH TO BE HAPPY, AND ALTHOUGH IT MAY SEEM HARD, ONCE YOU START, YOU CAN'T STOP! :)))))))))
