No matter how your day goes, there are plenty of reasons to stay positive. If you look up and stop looking down, you will realize how fortunate you really are. Even when things seem tough they are never really that bad if you look at the bright side. Change your view of the world to be a more positive one and this will influence all aspects of your life. Positive people produce positive results so what are you waiting for? Look up and be thankful for the day. Here are my reasons to stay positive each day:
1. Without Rain You Could Not Appreciate The Sun
So you woke up late, are tired and just not feeling your best today? Keep your head up because things will get better. Understand that every day may not be your best but if you look at the bright side, positive things will come your way. Without these tough days, you may not appreciate the good days. This tops my reasons to stay positive.
2. Health Is Wealth
Be thankful for your health. Recently I had an issue with my hearing and thankfully it was restored. This made me even more grateful for something I had taken for granted. Good health is the greatest gift!
3. Family Is a Blessing
I am so thankful for my family. I never thought I would be so lucky to have three healthy children. I get to see the positive through my 3 children’s eyes every day. Their view of the world is amazing!
4. Look at What You Have, Not What You Don’t Have
Stop wishing for another car, another house and another life. You have what you have for a reason and life is what you make of it. I am not telling you to give up on your dreams of moving or getting that car, but just be happy for what you have right now and enjoy this moment.
5. Today Is a New Day
A new day is coming so get up, brush your teeth, make your bed (or don’t), exercise, eat breakfast and conquer your daily tasks. Enter the day with a positive attitude and you will accomplish more. Be proud of all you do today rather than focusing on all you did not do. And enjoy the day because life is what you make of it!
6. A Chance to Be Anything
If you want to be a doctor, a lawyer, a nurse, a singer or any other dream career, just do it! Set up a plan because you can be anything. The beauty in life is we all have the opportunity to pursue any career we choose. Don’t give up this chance. Be anything you want to be!
7. Tomorrow Is a New Day to Do It All over Again
Off to bed, sleepy head, because in just a few hours a new day will begin. Write out your goals for the next day and get to bed to catch those Zzzzzzs. Tomorrow is a new day and the opportunity to accomplish whatever you choose!
Remember you have the potential to do anything in life if you stay positive, work hard and just believe. If you do not believe in yourself and take a chance, who will? So live the day how you choose and make it a great one! What are your reasons to stay positive?
