With everything that has been going on right now, staying positive, being grateful, and looking at the bright side may seem like an impossible thing to do.
I get it. This year has certainly caused me so much stress, draining my spirit and energy, and basically just causing my mental health to deteriorate.
When we’re going through difficult seasons and bad days, being grateful and loving life is pretty much the last thing on our minds.
I mean, how can we possibly love life if life just keeps knocking us down and throwing so many problems at us, without even giving us a chance to breathe — this is pretty much how I feel most days this year.
But after a while, I realized that focusing on the negative, all the bad things and problems did not do me any good.
It did not help change my situation nor did it made me feel better. For the record, it only made me feel so much worse.
If you too are going through difficult days and hard times, please know that regardless of how tough these days may feel, you can still control your happiness and your thoughts.
