Positive Thinking

Mommy Monday Motivation / Monday, October 30th, 2017

Happy Monday to all of you out there! Today is a new week which equals a fresh start! Fresh starts always make us feel so good because we are thinking positive and it makes us feel as if we can conquer the world. Then something bad happens or someone speaks negatively to us and that fresh start and positive thinking seem as if it just got flushed down the drain. We revert back to old ways and old feelings of negativity. I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way…

Today I want you to start thinking positive about everything. It’s a good day to start thinking positive! I know we all have our bad days, our bad moments, but today no matter what happens or comes your way I want you to see positive in everything. And don’t say, “Ok, I’ll try”. It’s like Yoda said, “do or do not, there is no try”. I really want you to do this and see how much better you feel throughout your day, throughout your week! Thinking positive will help you have a better mood for your kids, significant other, co-workers, but most importantly for yourself. You got to take care of yourself so that you can be the best you can be in every aspect of your life.

You may be thinking, but there’s this one person at work that always makes me mad or you just don’t get it because “insert problem here” happened and there’s no way I can think positive about that. Guess what? You can find positive in anything that happens in your life. It’s not the problem that affects you it’s how you allow the problem make you feel. I have always said that you set your own attitude level. You’re asking, “What in the heck are you talking about”? Here is what I mean, If you decide that it takes one person to do something or say something to upset you to the point where you are mad and it ruins your day then that’s your fault. You and only you can allow things to bother you. No one and I mean no one can make you feel a certain way unless you allow it. Take the annoying person in the office. What would happen if when they decided to say something belittling or just did something hateful  and you decided to just shrugged it off and told yourself, “Oh well that’s not ruining my day.” Wouldn’t you feel better? Um, YES!! You cannot and I repeat you cannot let people or events take away your happiness or your positive thinking. When something bad happens I want you to think about something positive instead of whatever bad thing is happening. Think of your kid(s), your significant other, or a goal your working to accomplish. Think of anything to keep your attitude positive!

Let me tell you a secret…

There are some very depressed, unhappy people in this world that will do anything to make anyone and everyone around them just as unhappy as they are. They get angry when they see other people happy especially, happy people who are working to better themselves. Man, they hate that. Sadly, this doesn’t even have to be just coworkers, strangers we don’t know, an ex, etc. Most of the time this may be people in our very own family who are so miserable that they think everyone else should feel like they do. Heck, they may even come off as being happy, but in reality, they aren’t and you know they aren’t. Remember this, no matter who it is, HAPPY PEOPLE DO NOT MESS WITH OTHER PEOPLE IN ORDER TO TRY AND MAKE THEM UNHAPPY!! Happy people focus on their own life and always work on improving themselves in order to make their life better for their families and for themselves. ALWAYS!!

So with that being said, what is going on today that you need to focus positive on? What are some positive things you can think about when something or someone decides to try to mess up your day? Come on I know you have positive things to think about! Did you wake up this morning? If your reading this the answer is yes! So that’s a positive thing!

I love to focus on my and my families future. I am in school working on a degree in order to better myself and my family. I have super awesome kids and a super awesome man in my life! I have a roof over my head and my family has everything we need. No matter what happens or what someone tries to bring on us no one can steal my happiness and positive thoughts unless I allow it. Honestly, I haven’t always been this way. However, you come to a point in life where you realize that you are not in control of your life when you allow events or other people control how you feel. You have to get rid of things and people who bring you down. Do not focus on them and there childish ways. Instead, YOU focus on YOU only! Who cares what they do or say. People are going to talk about you no matter how bad or good you do in life. You have to know that you’re doing what is best for you and your family. You have to not worry what other people think of you and realize their opinions don’t matter. All that matters is that you are happy with your life and happy with what you are doing to better yourself for you, your significant other, and your kid(s). So now I ask you this…

What can you do today that gives you a fresh start? What can you do today that makes you happy? What do you need to weed out of your life that’s negative so you are happier? And for the things or people you can’t weed out such as coworkers because you have to work with them, what positive thoughts can you have when things go bad?

Positive thinking can change your life! Start today off with positive thinking and make it last!

Questions to help you think positive

  1. I am a firm believer in self talk. If your self talk is negative, then your attitude will be negative and your vibe will be negative. Always promote love and kindness inward and it will flow outward.

  2. I really needed this today! I have abtheee year old who has become especially trying lately. Unfortunately, I think my negative thinking about how difficult parenthood has become has made the entire situation more mentally and emotionally draining than it needs to be. Changing my mindset may change the way I choose to handle my son’s behavior.
