Bringing positivity into our lives

I was enjoying my coffee when I stood up and looked out the window. I noticed an overflow of negative thoughts invading my mind and polluting my soul as my body awakened from the effects of the strong drink. I tried to ignore them by planning my daily activities.

As I filled up my notepad, I realized that for every positive activity, a stream of 2-3 negative ideas tainted it and sought to persuade me to change my mind. What if it doesn’t work out? Are you sure that’s what you want? What happens if it doesn’t work? Will you have the time to complete all of that? And it just kept going.

“Negative thoughts come to us all. But when you speak them out loud, you give them life. That’s when they become a reality.”― Joel Osteen, „The Power of I Am”

I believe there is a habit, a strange pleasure that erodes our happiness and satisfaction. Unfortunately, because we all have past experiences, trauma, and generational baggage, not many people have been encouraged to have a positive outlook on life.

The media does not make matters any easier. The Covid pandemic is all over the news; we now have a war, and prices are increasing. We’re watching movies that depict awful events and listening to music with intense lyrics, driving us to relive our darkest moments.

There are toxic people in our lives who prefer to perpetuate negative thinking, and not be embarrassed to express it regularly. Our parents are glued to the television and prefer to believe and live by every word of the poison and terror that the TV speaks of. They continue to transmit negative news to us, and they do it with such zeal that it causes dread and sadness in us as well. 

People became too used to this pattern, developing negative ideas, complaining, gossiping, and distracting others and themselves from their true path.

The fact is that anything we think and affirm comes true. We don’t understand the power of the words we express to ourselves and our loved ones. We are conducted to think negatively, speak negatively, and eventually live the same way.

By engaging in these behaviors and sharing negative experiences with people around us, we are causing ourselves pain. Waking up to this reality is conflictual. Everyone is comfortable in this poisoned environment, at ease with being unenlightened.

“Don’t ever stop believing in your own transformation. It is still happening even on days you may not realize it or feel like it.”― Lalah Delia

Change comes from inside; we won’t enjoy this life if we are filled with negativity. When we struggle to cope with toxic thoughts, too exhausted to think positively, relax. Inviting and attaching unpleasant ideas to previous experiences and trauma will result in bad karma in the future. What we say to ourselves, we’re giving it the right to pass on; we are going to become what we are declaring.

A way to change the focus from negative thoughts is through positive affirmations. They can inspire us to act on our dreams, help us reach our goals, and, most importantly, break the negative cycle that has been running before us.

  1. I love that quote, and agree. It takes some time to just sit and remember that. Happy with what I have, I know things are fine and I can be happy with what I have. yes prices are going up, then I realize that my grandparents did fine with less, I can get as much satisfaction with a run as I can with anything I can buy…family, friends, me, that’s all pretty good.

  2. Thank you for sharing this bit of positivity. Sometimes we get wrapped up in our own negativity, not knowing where it’s even coming from. Just simply taking a step back and seeing one positive thing, can change our entire perspective.
