I am going to try my hardest, starting today, to start turning negative situations into good ones. No more being frustrated over things I can't change, that is just added worry for no reason. No more procrastinating. No more being down in the dumps. No more pity parties.
If I can fix something in my life I need to either do it, start working towards fixing it, or let it go instead of bottling it in and staying angry.
I have some really exciting things that I am hoping will be good changes for me. I am working my butt off to make things happen for me. I am learning new things everyday. Trying to become more open to change, to people, to life in general. I have crazy anxiety half of the time and I know this holds me back from so much. I have a pretty serious temper and I need to learn to let stuff roll off my back and move on.
I was lurking Tumblr the other day and saw a post from this lady who wrote when her boyfriend has bad days that he wakes up every morning and writes down all the good stuff that happened the day before. I loved that idea. Its so perfect in every way. I am not a naturally positive person and I will admit that. Ive let that keep me from being happy for years now. I always get so bogged down by every little thing that there were a few months when I literally wanted to just lay in bed and cry all the time and frequently would. It took a lot for me to get mostly past that but I still have days when its all I can think about it.
I am challenging myself to kick my own butt into gear this time. Every day Im going to write happy things, try to roll anger off my back and just be a generally more positive person. Wish me luck?!
Do any of you have problems with staying positive? Any tips to help me?
