Life is not meant to be a smooth and easy ride. Remain optimistic in your life by being thankful for all that you have. Focus on what is going well for you in your life and don’t dwell on what is not happening. If you are grateful and optimistic it’s impossible to also be negative and discouraged at the same time, so why not choose optimism.
Say to yourself each day,
“I choose to be optimistic and am grateful for all that I have in my life. I understand that joy and depression cannot co-exist and therefore I choose to practice positive thinking. I replace all the negative thoughts I have with positive thoughts. I keep a list of all the things I’m grateful for and add to it daily”.
It’s easy to fall down the negative path, but don’t let yourself slip. By practising gratitude each time you have a negative thought it will start to become an automatic process. It will help you significantly in your life.
Sending you love and kindness.
