I prefer to live on the SUNNY side of the street.
Let that sink in a bit, before you decide to reject the idea of it… 😉
There is something to be said for the people who prefer to look on the positive side of situations, and see the glass as half full instead of half empty; in my opinion when you try consistently to have a positive mind, any situation will shift towards a more positive one than you ever thought possible.
Here are some pointers to consider to help shift your mindset into a positive drive mode:
Be comfortable in your own skin.
Surround yourself with people who value the same things as you and leave the people with bad attitudes behind.
Appreciate what you have.
The grass seems to always be greener on the other side of the street but that does not mean it is actually greener. If you keep wishing, hoping, expecting for something else and don’t feel happy with what you already have, you will always feel like something is missing in your life.
See the positive in every situation.
You may run into unfortunate situations in life that you can not control. You can choose to turn it around and focus on the positive. There is an opportunity waiting for you to make any situation into a positive experience and a life lesson.
Drop the resentment within.
No matter what anyone has done to you, if they hurt you, misunderstood you, looked down on you, underestimated you, back-stabbed you, abused you, or cheated on you — when you hold on to the resentment, you only hurt yourself. Train yourself to let go, so your soul can breath; best remedy is to try to be happy.
Live in the moment.
Focus on what is happening in front of you at every moment of the day, don’t think about what you need to do next and don’t dwell on what you should’ve done before. The only constant in life is change. Just live in the moment and you will live your best.
Don’t worry, be Happy!
