Finding positivism through change of perspective

Life has a bizarre way of twisting in and out of pace. Sometimes you’re coasting downhill, wind at your back, other times it seems like you’re swimming upstream. Even when you consider yourself as an optimist, when life gets hard staying positive becomes a challenge. Half the battle is to recognize negative thoughts. It’s easy to dwell in negativity but you have a choice to capture that thought, release it and choose a positive one. Let's switch from negative to positive – beginning as soon as we wake up. Let's open our eyes with a fresh perspective. And think YES, I'm alive.

Now and then, there comes a time when the walls begin to close in. All the beautiful surroundings feel more like a barricade. Even with the most positive mood, it feels like a splash of cold water in your face again. When this trapped feeling somehow snuck in, its time to change perspective and hit that reset button.

When I pushed that button, I was ready to get inspired again. I tried to look around with a positive eye. For example; I saw my shoes next to the front door. Normally I would walk right passed them. But now, they were standing there, inviting me out. I looked at them as a motivation to move. I always like taking slow walks, the kind that make you notice things; like that clouds are never the same. So I went out and get that heart rate up and breath deeper than I can remember. I experience pure harmony with the fresh air on my skin. I could feel my spirit automatically loading with positively. After that simple walk outside, I have returned to myself, ready to take on another week. This change in the way I look at things will lead to more positivism in the daily life. Just find your place where the air is easy to breath.

Most people start new year as an opportunity to make a promise to themselves. But new years resolutions will be swallowed by the dark and depressing days of January. Well, we have already survived Blue Monday – we can fight some more. Focus on finding positivism and change perspective. The sun will break trough the clouds again. Even when it feels like you standing at the bottom of a valley and the only way is up the mountain. One foot after another, the climb is worth it. Just think of the incredible view on the top.

What do you need to think more positively?
