Living A Positive Life... Your Attitude Is Your Choice

Living a positive life is a choice you can make. The way you perceive situations and the attitude you carry with you is your decision. As I observe the world and listen to people talk about their lives I can not help but wonder why so many of them complain about their situations. I used to be one of them. One day, I woke up and simply decided to change my own attitude.

You are probably wondering how a person can just decide to be happy; it is really quite simple. Is it easy? No. It is something that does take a little work and a whole lot of practice. But just like anything that is worth doing is going to take some effort. With enough practice, eventually it will become a natural response like breathing.

It begins with being grateful for what you have. When you appreciate what you have, you can then begin to deserve what you want. Look around you. You have a place to sleep. You are wearing clothes. If you are reading this right now then you have some sort of internet access. What else do you have? What if you had less? Show some gratitude.

Now that you are beginning to be grateful for what you have you have already begun to shift your thoughts to the positive. How you phrase things also makes a difference. Choose your thoughts and words carefully. Instead of saying, "I hate it when..." it is much better to focus on what you like or love about something. Consider, "I love it when..." Your attitude and perception is always your choice. By focusing on what you love, you will attract more of what you love. Your thoughts begin it, your emotions amplify it and your actions increase the momentum.

 Happiness is not a destination; it is the journey.
To be happy is a choice you make. 
Your attitude and perception is under your complete control.

And you are on your way to living a positive life. What else can you do to to make it better? Are you going to stress over things that already happened? Or stress over things that have not happened yet?  You can not change the past and the future is ever changing; so enjoy what is right there in front of you in the present time. Just live in the moment.

The best way to enjoy those moments is to laugh, and laugh as often as possible. Laughter is the best medicine for the soul. It naturally heals the body. Laughter also raise your vibes as it overrides all other emotions. If something goes wrong in your day, find the humor in it. Almost anything can be found to be funny. It is all a matter of how you view things. Shift your perspective.

Yeah, things are going to come up, little issues that might rattle you. Shrug it off and go with the flow. Sometimes things happen to change your path; just roll with it. If you can change the situation, then handle it. If not, do not worry about it. Believe that everything will work out for the better. You may be amazed at where it will lead you; especially if you keep a positive attitude. It IS your choice.
