01 Oct Be the Light!
It’s not easy to be positive all the time. I would be lying if I said
that I was always in a positive space. There are times that I want to lay
in my bed, wallow in my sorrows, and complain about the circumstances of my
life, but what good would that do? There’s always something to complain about,
but we would just be adding more negativity into the Universe and quite
frankly, we have enough negativity as it is.
This does not take away from our feelings of neglect, hurt,
and frustration. Life is hard! It is difficult! It’s okay to experience
negative emotions and not want to think about the positive side of things. I’m
not saying to walk around as if you are the happiest person alive and to never
allow anything to bother you. What I am saying is, when the negativity occurs,
sit with those feelings, allow it to flow through you, but do not allow it to
stay with you.
Life knocks us down sometimes, but we cannot stay down. We
are all fighting our own battles in many different ways. Shout, scream, and cry
if you have to, do whatever it takes to get your frustrations out, but do not
stay in this place of negativity for too long. As long as you have air in your
lungs, blood in your veins, and a beating heart, you have much to be grateful
for. Soon you will realize that life is just a beautiful nightmare. Enjoy it!
Love it! Appreciate it!
My best friend has invited me to join him in “A Complaint
Free Month” for the month of October. Will you join us? We could complain and talk about having better
days, but then we must recognize that there’s always someone in a worse
situation. So no more complaining, get it out right now. And I challenge you to
change someone’s perspective to a positive thought when they come to you
complaining. It could be the thing that turns someone’s day around and ultimately
their life. Because even when it appears to you that your light is dull, you
still have the capability of brightening someone’s day. Be the light!
