Being positive!

I've been out of pocket lately visiting my newest grandchild. It was a wonderful and much needed vacation...

Our thoughts are not simply pieces of information that enter our minds and then disappear. The words and ideas that we think can shape our lives and drive us toward success and happiness or failure and distress. How you think and feel can have a profound effect on your ability to recognize opportunity, how well you perform, and the outcome of the goals that you’ve set for yourself. When you maintain an optimistic outlook and make an effort to harbor only positive thoughts, you begin to create the circumstances to help you achieve what you desire. Being optimistic does not mean that you ignore difficulties or disregard limitations. Instead, it means that you try and focus only on the thoughts that lift you up.

When you focus on the positive aspects of your life and your future, it helps maintain the feeling that you are worthy of your achievements. In turn, you will start to relax and look for solutions rather than dwelling on problems. What the mind expects, it finds. If you anticipate joy, good health, happiness, and accomplishment, you will tend to experience them. 

Staying positive may not have an immediate effect on your situation, but it will likely have a profound and instantaneous effect on your mood and the quality of your experiences. In order for positive thinking to change your life, it must become your predominant mind-set. It is within your grasp to become as happy, content, or successful as you make up your mind to be.
