Train Your Mind To See The Good In Every Situation

Some situations cause us to drop through the floor with our self-esteem. We go to a dark place, and after a while, it seems the norm to be there. So much so that even the thoughts of being somewhere happy seem very foreign to us. We have to remind ourselves that we were happy before, we can be happy again. It is possible, and we can make it so. We have to look past the things that bring us down. Look at what made us feel like this, and deconstruct it. Look at each part and how we can alter each piece to change that frown to a smile. I’m not saying it is easy, because when we are in a bad place, we don’t want to see the good. We have to make a conscious decision to do it, and it is possible.

If you are in a bad place right now, I hope you can get out of there soon. I hope that you can get a smile on your face. Try to have a good weekend. Smile. It can help. Seriously.

  1. The people who are meant to be in your life will find a way to gravitate back towards you, no matter how far they wonder~
    This is so true…I am constantly amazed at the people who are still around after 20, 30 and even 40 years. And then there are those who are no longer there…… and I’m good with that! 🙂

    • There was a girl when I was 6 or 7 that I told my mum I was going to marry. Apparently I hadn’t told this girl though. When I was 10 I lost contact with her. When I was 20, I started trying to find her again. When I was 30, I thought about giving it up. When I was 40, I started searching the internet for her. When I was 45, she was sat beside me in a café and recognised me.

      • Sweet story…did you hook up? 🙂
        I had a friend I met at girl scout camp when we were very young and we stayed friends thru high school, then lost touch in college. I started diligently looking for her after I moved home (20 yrs later) and had all but given up. Then she and her daughter walked right up to my booth at a Bridal Show and she didn’t recognize me at first until I told her who I was. Then I told her I had been searching for her! It was an awesome reunion….I love it when God brings people together again~

  2. You know the old saying……….the tongues are the most wicked part of man kind. I love the one about not changing the words once spoken. Great post Al!
