Remaining Faithful…Hopeful…& Positive! Repost from 8.28.14

Remaining Faithful…Hopeful…& Positive

There seems to be so much happening in the world around us.  Some of it is affecting us directly and indirectly.  Needless to say, we are being affected.  These last few months seems like I have been surrounded by death.  Just about everything that I see on the news is NEGATIVE!  And let’s not begin with social media.  All of these events make it extremely easy to lose faith, hope, and anything positive.  Sometimes it’s hard to focus on the positive things in life when so much negative surrounds you.  I’m learning to surround myself with positive people and thoughts daily.  Life is much easier this way.Death… My attitude about death changed a while ago.  It’s the inexplicable and inevitable.  We know the time nor the hour.  All I can do is make each day count.  This life here on earth isn’t guaranteed.  This is easier said than done, depending on the circumstances.  Remain faithful, hopeful and positive.  Cherish your loved ones.  Make memories as no one can take these away from you. Say I love you! But don’t just say it…Show them that you mean it!  It has been 27 days since our (my family) world was turned upside down.  I can get through some of my worst days because I have memories of Corey.  Good, great, awesome memories. These things matter.  Send text messages, make phone calls and just cherish each other.

Negativity… I don’t know when it became cool to be so negative.  The media, television and social media are draining the life out of people.  That is IF you LET them.  Don’t get sucked into the drain of negativity.  Be that sprinkle of faith, hope and positive energy someone needs for the day.  We don’t have to ALWAYS be attracted to the negative and the drama.  Spread hope and positive messages.  I like the fact that there’s a challenge on FB to post three positive things for seven days on your FB page but also tag three different people daily.  I have found it to be refreshing and a good time for me to reflect on the positive that has occurred during the day.

There’s so much to stress about, worry about, fret over, and all that other stuff BUT you can choose to focus on the positive things in life.  A lot of people will say it’s hard to do when you have so much going in your life.  Your life could always be worse.  Nothing will change about your situation until you change your way of thinking.  No one has a perfect life.  And if they lead you to believe they do they are LYING! Things will happen…You may lose your job, house, car, loved one, etc but you have to make a decision to remain faithful, hopeful and positive.  Overcome the obstacle(s), learn from your experience, and share it with someone else who needs a little hope and positive energy!

Thankful Thursday! I’m thankful for it all.  I am stronger! I am smarter! I am wiser! I am more faithful! I am more hopeful! I am positive! I know for certain all my NEEDS are being met! #ThankfulThursday
