Have you ever heard the phrase “Life is like a roller coaster?” Some days it certainly seems like it. With as many up’s and you come across it seems as though there are that many downs. However life is what you make of it.
I hate how when something bad happens all anyone wants to tell me is “Everything happens for a reason.” What a stupid phrase and something you definitely do not want to hear while your heart is breaking. However once the pain is gone and I can begin to move on I realize just how accurate that statement is.
Just because one thing does not go your way doesn’t mean you need to give up and shut down. Turn the negative into a positive. So, you did not get that promotion you wanted. So, maybe that is because you were meant to get the next one you apply to which will be a better fit or better money.
So, you find out your boyfriend of 3 years cheated on you and breaks your heart. That sucks but guess what that just means you were too good for him anyways and you don’t need that in your life. You will find someone much better suited to you and will treat you with the respect you deserve.
Life is about discovering who you are and what makes you happy. Never forget that. You will get out of live what you give. If you give out positivity you will get it in return. If you give out negativity you will feel like you will never be able to catch a break.. Bad things just keep happening.
Try this, spend one full day being positive. No matter what. When you wake up tomorrow morning tell yourself you will not have any negativity in your life today. Then when something comes up (it always will. ) Turn it around. See how that can change your entire outlook on that day. And it may even help your colleagues as well.
There is a book called the Energy Buss. Its an amazing book. I would encourage everyone to read it. It talks about this and helps you put into perspective how your attitude effects others attitudes and other people’s opinions of you.
Have a happy and positive week!
