What does positivity mean anyway?

“How do you want to feel?” is the question we should be asking ourselves instead of “What do you want to accomplish?”

As I grow older, my goal has always been to be a happy person. To be a happy person, one must choose a positive attitude more often than not.

I say more often than not because positivity doesn’t mean that we don’t experience bouts of anger or sadness. It also doesn’t mean that we’re positive people 24/7.

There’s a quote I read a while back from Desirée B. Silvage’s blog LITERARY TRUCE :

The art of aging is the art of keeping some hope.

As I grow older, I’ve come to understand that I must work hard to protect the part of me that is hopeful because there will always be things that try to take our hope away.

Positivity comes down to the way we choose to perceive life. Positivity always comes down to one choice. May we continue to choose that which keeps our hope alive.

  1. I love the first sentence of this and I agree 100%!! I feel like society sets us up to be people that are proud of physical accomplishments, and yet I feel like we should strive to be happy not strive to be successful (in the materialistic sense). In a weird way, being happy feels much more like being successful, because life is actually being enjoyed and lived and felt for what it is. Great post 😊
