It can be hard to put on a smile sometimes. Through life, there are ups and downs and little loop-dee-loops but, overall, there is good in the world – it can just be a little difficult to find. Let this post be your magnifying glass and help you bring positivity into focus. Here are 5 positive thoughts that can help you put a smile on and remember that we all share in this one world, together.
1.Happiness is a choice.
The age-old saying goes, “You cannot choose the cards you are dealt, but you control how you play the hand.” You have overcome struggles in your life. No matter how titanic or trivial your struggles may have been, the fact is that you overcame. Whether it was time or a solution, something happened and you made the choice to be happy again.
2. You can make someone else’s day.
A simple smile or a little friendly banter can go a long way. No matter your mood or what is preventing you from choosing happiness, you can still have an impact on the day of a coworker, family member, friend or complete stranger.
3. You are the captain of your own ship.
Every decision you have made and action you have taken has contributed into making you who you are today. You are the creator of your own destiny. The decisions you make today will contribute to making you who you are tomorrow. Every thought we think is creating our future.
4. Someone loves you unconditionally.
Your personality and character are two things that have drawn someone near and dear to you even closer. Whether it is a member of your family, a best friend, a significant other or a pet, you have the love of someone who truly believes in you. Unconditional love means that this individual knows your past and present and wants to stick around to see what the future holds – no matter what.
5. We all share in this one, beautiful world.
It is an interesting thought to ponder that we, as a human race, are sharing this beautiful world. The planet we live on is one that is full of beauty and wonder. The craziest part? Microsoft proved that we are just six degrees of separation between anyone on the planet. Thinking of these positive thoughts, choosing to be happy and making someone else’s day can have ripple effects around the world!
