Mindset and Positivity
Positivity has become more important than ever. Buzzwords – be positive, think positive, choose positivity – are all around us on T shirts, in the Media, and written everywhere we look.
Once you start to think positive, you see and experience more positivity. According to the Universe and through the Law of Attraction, what you give out is what you get back. Being positive is a mindset that reaps great rewards.
As Gary Zukav says “Every intention sets energy into motion whether you are conscious of it or not”
So positive energy and emotions multiply. You feel better and better things happen.
Dwelling on the negative and problems, or a glass half full, creates more of the same. Positivity creates hope and is hope.
As the late great Christopher Reeve said “Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.”
Even on the darkest days there are positive things to be found if we look and happy moments. A sunny sky, food, water, a beautiful flower…etc
Gratitude and Mindfulness
Mindfulness and gratitude are also intertwined with positivity.
Gratitude, there are always things to be grateful for. A task completed, a bill paid, a conversation with loved ones… so many things.
Every evening, naming three things that you are grateful for that happened that day, all help to change the mindset to positive and put things in perspective.
Being mindful, taking the time to really be present to what is going on around you and to experience and feel the sensations. To eat more slowly and to really taste the food we eat. To pause and really look at and experience the birds singing and the breeze on our faces…To really see the beauty of nature around us. The single flower that managed to bloom between the pavement cracks… Actually seeing properly what is happening around us. This awareness can promote gratitude and positivity aswell.
Smiling more promotes that feel good factor and creates more positivity. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but as our national treasure Captain Sir Tom Moore said, “Tomorrow will be a better day”
“Every day is your day if you claim it. If you wait for somebody else to make it for you, you’re going to be disappointed.” Iyanla Vansant
Think positive and allow room for positivity to flow back.
Lots of smiles, happy today and many happy tomorrows 🙂
