    Positive Thinking And Health

    I have always been a positive thinker even when things seemed difficult or even tragic. In other words, life is full of ups and downs for everyone. We all loose people and pets we love. We all have issues with our finances at one time or another. Many of us have gone through...

    Positive thinking is great

    but we must be careful to do it in such a way that it doesn't justify a life of complacency.

    Practicing 'The Secret" Day One

    I had read the book "The Secret" several years ago...I didn't finish reading it. I also watched the movie. I was skeptical thinking "this stuff is crap". So, I only tried it half-assed. Today is day one of "positive thoughts". So far, its interesting and fun. You just write down...

    a beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset,

    when you wake up take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy, the moment you start acting like life is a blessing, i assure you that it will start to feel like one.

    It Works~

    I believe in positive thinking because low points suck. But nothing sucks more than being at a low point and thinking that it'll never get better while making no attempt to challenge that thought. Challenge your debilitating thoughts. How you think about your life shapes it, it...

    Today don't think about what others may

    or may not believe, don't worry about being right or wrong, have people's approval or not, being judge or not, liked or not liked. Wouldn't you feel free if you didn't care about what others though? Be YOU don't worry about anyone else, they'll survive :)

    Positively...

    I absolutely positively believe that being positive in ones life will help you get through even the toughest of times.  I am positive that this attitude is what has helped me walk the path that I have walked rather than giving up and throwing in the towel.

    Our thought process has a HUGE impact on our

    daily lives. The amount of negative thinking and speech would put out is surprisingly high. I encourage everyone to consciously try to change that for at least one day. It's amazing how different you feel on the inside. Once you make it habit, everything seems so wonderful. It...

    Change the way you look today.

    Why waste time? It doesn't carry over the next day. It doesn't earn interest. Take every day and every moment, and make something of it. Make something positive!

    I believe I've come to a decision of sorts.

    I admit this may waver during extremely bad times, but just this moment it feels reasonable. I'll focus on me. Making myself happy. Living. Enjoying. Being the person I want to be. No more shrinking in the corner because I might annoy him. No more not doing something just...

    How we think affects our daily lives.

    When we think, we attract. Yes it's true. Have you ever read THE SECRET? it's where everything lies on what they call as The Law of Attraction. We may not get it at first but it really works. When we think about having a good life, surely it will come. But of course, everything...
