Everyone tells us to think of the positive, to not worry so much, although this is all good advice it can be very complicated- you are stuck in traffic which makes you late for work, you spill coffee all over your best outfit right before a meeting, you’re stressing out about your friends wedding and your mom just told you some bad news…Great, now what? You come home and your negativity becomes infectious, your spouse has great news to tell you but you can’t seem to muster up a smile and give them your full attention. Everyone falls victim to this kind of day, but how do you get out of it? How do you capture the good things in a day and how do you share in the great attitude of others? Here are 3 ways to bring positive thought to your day:
Good evening everyone! I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend. I just got back from a fun and relaxing weekend at my parents place in Wasaga. If you have been following along with my blog, you will probably know that I recently purchased a used car and have been gearing myself up for larger adventures. If you know me personally, you will know that I haven’t driven too much in my life, as I got accustomed to taking the bus. Although the bus and I had our moments, it was time to part ways and move on to bigger and better things. 3 months later I find myself driving up, by myself to Wasaga beach! During my travels I noted some key points and tips for myself, or fellow adventure seekers when they embark on their next journey.
Good morning everyone, I hope that you’re all doing well today and are enjoying what the day brings you. I, in fact, am just about to begin a morning yoga routine to start my day. Isn’t this just so simple? Like I have said before it’s the little things in life that truly make us happy. The book I am reading ties into this idea, it’s called How Philosophy Can Save Your Life and the basic principles outlined in this book inspire me.
Do you remember when I talked about empowerment and doing something that you have always wanted to do but have been too afraid to do or ‘didn’t have the time’? Well, never tell yourself this. Case in point, I thought I would never buy a car, I don’t need one, I’m too afraid, it’s too expensive, etc. All of these excuses I would make until I realized this…
What defines motivation? Is it drive to succeed, appreciation that leads to change, or is it all subjective to an individual? Will you be more motivated to make one choice over the other based on what will make you the most satisfied today, tomorrow or in five years from now?
It’s a hard concept thanks to fear of change, intimidation and failure hanging over our heads.
