Look for the positives no matter what

Look for the positives in life no matter what else is happening.

It is easy to think that your life isn’t enjoyable because stuff happens. There is always stuff that can happen and if everything is a disaster then when can you ever enjoy life? Life is about learning that you can be happy despite difficult things happening.

Why am I saying this? I have a friend who is going through difficult things now and I encourage them to be grateful and look at the positive things in life. I don’t allow them to wallow in self-pity and depression which doesn’t help anyone. Life requires courage, and with courage, we can not only survive but thrive.

This isn’t some toxic positivity this was my choice in the past as well. When I faced the most difficult hour in my life I had to make a choice. Was my life meaningful or was it worthless? I figured that the universe wouldn’t create something for no reason, and I would trust to see how the rest of my life unfolded. Since then my life has only gotten better.

Sure there are things that you wish didn’t happen. Unexpected bills. Personal loss of family and friends that you love. However, it just shows how precious love and life are, and not that pain isn’t worth it.

No matter what, I will enjoy my life. Even if that means I am only eating rice and sleeping on the floor. We need far less than we think we do.
