Why Being Positive is Not ‘FAKE’!

There’s an idea that has spread in the world that being positive is the same as being naive or ignorant. It’s not true. ✖️
.
I use to think the same thing myself. I would think people who were so positive were just not ‘realistic’ about life. There are many bad things that happen in the world, these people would have to be naive to be so positive, right?! They must not have gone through hardships in their life like others have, right?! 😠
.
But I found out I was wrong. I found out I was in fact the person being naive for making this very assumption. 
.
I also became the positive person I’m referring to you all right now! The jokes on me now, right?! 😂
.
🌟 Being positive is not about being ‘fake’. It’s about making an active effort to not let one’s emotions dictate their reality. 🌟
.
Being positive is a habit that can be developed. I can assure you all I wasn’t like this on Day 1! You can develop this too if you want to! 😄
.
Yes, there are bad things that happens in the world. Yes, bad things also happen to good people. I could certainly give you a list of all the negative experiences I’ve personally gone through that I would never wish upon anyone. But what’s the point? It’s in the past, and that’s not where I’m headed! 👍
.
The question I keep coming back to instead is: 🤔…Now what am I going to do about it? 🤔
.
Author Stephen Covey said it best with his Habit of Being Proactive. ‘Proactive people carry their own weather with them.’ What weather will you decide to carry with you in your life? ☁️
.
I’ve decided to carry a Sun with me wherever I go. I am positive, on purpose, not by accident. You can too! Feel free to join me! 🌞 #TranscendLabels

Seeking Happiness from Others

Valentine’s Day was a couple days ago, and I thought about this silly picture I took last year. I’ve been single for quite a bit of my life, but it’s never really “bothered” me. If anything, I like to poke fun at myself and my singleness as such.

I notice around Valentine’s Day some people start to feel down because they are single. And I can empathize with that. Continue reading “Seeking Happiness from Others”

Taking A Second Chance

“Some people comes into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.”

Last July I reconnected with an old high school friend from my past. We originally met in Choir class, and we sat next to each other. He was a freshman, and I was a senior. It was fair to say at the time with our age groups and having only 1 class together we didn’t connect on a deeper level. Nevertheless, we were friends for a school year, and when I graduated I tried staying in touch with him. Unfortunately, our friendship was short-lived, and we soon ended our connection on bad terms.
