How I See Positivity

Carol – your life is EASY that’s why you are happy all the time!The old saying holds true, if only I had a $1 for every time someone said that to me I’d be rich.

If you leave here knowing only one thing – positivity doesn’t equal easy, then you’ve left empowered.

So what is positivity?

Positivity is gratitude and appreciation for where you were, where you are, and where you are going.

Positivity is kindness and compassion to you, others and the world.

Positivity heightens celebrations and lessens shortcomings.

Positivity is seeing the perfection in the imperfection.

Positivity is reframing what you don’t want in your life into a statement on what you do want.

Positivity is looking for the needle in the haystack, seeing the rainbow after the rain, and knowing that the sun still shines behind the clouds.

Positivity is about being aware of what you think, say and do and how it makes you feel.

Positivity is about showing up as your best self and being gentle when you didn’t.

Ask yourself which feels better? I hate war! I love peace!

What Positivity is not:

Oh Carol, get real – life is hard!Positivity is not about burying challenges and painting a smile on your face when you are sad, unhappy or any other fear based emotion.Positivity is not about being a doormat at letting people roll over you because you are ‘too kind’ as positivity can say no from a place of respect and empowerment.

Positivity is not about right or wrong, good or bad but rather about choices and sequences that follow those choices.

I too have moments where I’m sad, frustrated, angry or fearful, but through laser awareness of my thoughts, words and actions, I redirect myself to a better feeling place.
