You are beautiful!

I once heard the phrase, "No one can make you feel inferior without your permission". I believe that was from Eleanor Roosevelt- but, don't quote me on that. I know I tend to post more on the "Thinking Positive" page of my blog. 

Through all my challenges in life, the one thing that keeps me striving forward (besides my relationship with Christ), is thinking positive. I am a sensitive person and my feelings get hurt easily, as many can attest to. However- I start getting on my pity party (like I did this weekend) and pout.

I recently saw this quote:

"When you are struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it is just as hard as what you are going through."
-Dear John, Nicholas Sparks

WOW! Talk about my thoughts doing a 360 degree turn, in relation to my little pity party that I was having.

Remember- YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! You may be going through health issues, or financial issues, or even family issues. Keep moving forward. Life is too short for the negative. Keep positive. One thing I remember is this: somebody may be going through something you're not aware of. Sometimes, it's the hardest thing to remember. When you're going through challenges yourself, it's easy to crawl into yourself. By staying positive, you will shine and draw people to you and they will gravitate to you- thus creating a ripple effect. Sure, we're human and we all have our bad days. Chin up, friend! 

Thoughts for today:

1. Do you journal? How long have you kept a journal?

2. What is your biggest trigger that keeps you from a Positive Mental Attitude? Is it health, finances, etc.?

3. What can you do today to cheer someone up?

  1. Carlen,

    Compliments to you for being positive. YOU are quite right...we do sometimes focus on the negative - I know I do. Thank you for the reminder that everyone has issues, problems, etc.
