Think Do Be Positive!

How is your attitude today? 
Is it negative? Is it positive? 
The difference between the two can have a profound effect on your life. Attitudes are contagious.  Are yours worth catching? Our lives become a series of habits over time, including our thinking process. You must begin each day with a choice about your attitude.

Life is too short to go about it grumpily, moaning, and complaining about how unfair it is.
Having a positive attitude helps us to cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worry and negative thinking. 

A positive attitude leads to happiness and can change your whole life. If you look at the bright side of life, your whole life becomes filled with light. This light affects not only you and the way you look at the world, but also your whole environment and the people around you.

One thing that really helps me personally is to think of things on an Eternal Perspective. An Eternal Perspective makes every problem temporary, no matter how permanent it may seem right now.

I am thankful for all the awesome positive thoughts people share daily by clicking on my button I made below. They truly uplift me and make me smile :)
Let us all...

Choose to be happy

Look at the bright side of life


Choose to be and stay optimistic


Find reasons to smile more often 

Meditate on our blessings

Have faith in yourself and in our loving Heavenly Father and Savior

Associate yourself with happy people

Learn to master your thoughts

Visualize only what you want to happen

Repeat affirmations that inspire and motivate you

Make positive thinking a habit
Hope you all have a positive day!
Love and Hugs from me to you :)

So TRUE Shauna! Thank you for sharing these thoughts, especially because I've been so down this past month. Casey is discovering this little, yet big, help. The way we think can bring about good or bad outcomes. He's been making some great strides in that area and I'm proud of him. You've been on my thoughts a LOT lately and yet I have been lax in calling you to see how you are doing. I hope you can forgive my lapse. Love you and hope to talk to you soon.

I do try to be positive, but I definitely have my days where every thought in my head is negative. Those days are no fun and it doesn't change my situation one bit so I am working on erasing them away. Hard work for me!
