Your Struggles Aren't Who You Are.
4 Ways To Change Negatives into Positives
Life is like a roller coaster, you'll have the high moments, the low moments then sometimes you'll just be smooth sailing enjoying the moment. But most importantly, you gotta ask yourself what you take away from each moment.
When I was younger I used to be a very hot headed person, had to have everything a certain way and just to scared to actually live the life I wanted. So here, I'm going to talk about 10 ways to begin to live happily and stress free.
1. Everything will be okay
When I say everything will be okay, I mean it. And when you say it, you should mean it too. Whatever problems are going on won't last forever. If you lost your job, you'll find a new one. If you lost a loved one, it will hurt, I still hurt but with time you'll begin to heal. You can't let the negative in your life replace the positive, because in time it'll change who you are at your core.
2. Enjoy the little things
As we get older we tend to lose interest in the little things because we are so busy doing other things. We have families to raise, run a business, have meetings etcs, don't let that blind you from truly enjoying the things you love or who you love. Take time to admire the sunset, or sunrise if your a early bird. Soak up the smell of dinner cooking or the coffee brewing in the morning. If you have kids, look at their drawings and feel the beauty and love of having a family. Adult life can take all that away, but don't let it, you still have to live.
3. Be Thankful for your Spouse/Partner/Family
When you first met, you remember how much you noticed the little things about them. The way they slept, how they looked cooking, how much you enjoyed it when they wore a certain color? My husband and I have been together for 4 years, to some people that might not be a huge amount of time. But I can tell you this, we still tell each other I Love You multiple times throughout the day. We spend every night together watching movies and every Sunday come up with something to make for dinner that we both never had before. We tell each other thank you, and still tell each other how much the other means to us. My point is, everybody needs love, love is happiness. No matter if it's to your family, daughter, son, wife, husband, mom, dad etc. Home is where the heart is.
4.Don't be afraid to talk
If something is bothering you don't be afraid to talk about it. You have a voice, so use it! I will be so in my head and when my husband notices he always says, "if you don't tell me, I don't know how it fix it." Simple. And guess what, problem solved. If your not married or can't really talk to your spouse or partner call a family member or a really close friend. Someone you know who will truly listen to what you have to say.
I know these sound easier said than done, but I felt writing this is really important for the people who need to be reminded they aren't alone and whatever life is throwing at you, you can handle it and be happy. Negative is way easier than being positive. You just have to want it.
