Day 8 ~ Practical Positivity
Posted: Jan 14 2015Today is Wednesday - Happy Camel Day!
As I sit and contemplate and give thanks to the steps and lessons I've had to take in order to create a positive and healthy life, I came across the author I am quoting below. What she is says resonates with me and I want to share it with you. It truly is the HARDEST part of creating a positive life for yourself. ( I know, I go through this everyday....it's a practice....) So, be gentle with yourself as you go through process......but do know that this is so very, very important as you invite in and grow your positive lifestyle. <3
"If you want to live a positive, joyful and happy life, you cannot –- absolutely CANNOT -– be surrounded by negative people who are not encouraging your happiness. When I was a pretty negative person, I tended to attract other negative people.
When I decided to make the change to live a more positive life, I had to rid my life of all of the negative people in it. This, as you can imagine, wasn’t easy. Getting rid of people hurts -– even when you know they aren’t good for you or your current lifestyle.
Not only did I have to get rid of the negative people, but I also had to get rid of the negative things too. I had to stop doing certain things that were causing negativity in my life. I had to take a step back and examine which behaviors were good for me and which were not.
I learned to focus on the positive things I was doing and let go of the negative ones. This process was not easy and to be honest, is still ongoing, but I know this: having negativity in your life prevents you from living a truly positive existence." ~ Dani - Positively Present
Have a beautiful day!
