How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
I have a list of songs that I listen to when I'm feeling down. I little movin and groovin always seems to put a smile on my face. ( And yes singing into the hairbrush is ok)
Don't worrie be happy!!!!
Live today, this is what you have right now, that is why it is called the present!
Each day is a gift!
and whistle while you work!!
Be content with what you have and who you are.
Bring out that gleeful child in you by skipping for a minute or so. You'll feel a return to the place of pure fun and enjoyment you felt as a kid. Surprise yourself and skip around - you might even start laughing aloud. This feeling can open you up to more fun possibilities.
What has helped me is a gratitude journal, I list out a few things everyday that I am thankful for--they are simple items, When asked I smile and say I am doing good and I have started to make plans for something to look forward to, short term and long term. Put my life in perspective and happier
I spending a lot of time explaining to myself WHY I can do it . I explore my failures, I made bad choices along the way. What are better decisions and what's stopping me from changing my future.
Every morning before you get out of bed, (even if the kids are already fighting)... say to yourself: This is going to be a positive day! Take a deep breath and start a great day!
Whether you are typing a blog, or answering the phone, people can "hear" you smile. Attitude counts, and how you answer a phone or a message can definitely be seen in how you respond. Practice picking up the phone with a smile in your voice!
