The secret ingredients to positivity might be

your favorite beverage, a joyful moment and your latest accomplishment. Did I get it right? What are the ingredients of your positivity? If you’re having trouble finding the good in your day lately, here’s an idea that’ll bring you joy and appreciation: the happiness jar. You don’t even have to call it the happiness jar. I didn’t. I call mine the positivity jar, but you can simply call it The Jar. I wasn’t about to go buy supplies to make a jar, so I decided I’d make one from the supplies I have already. I needed a tad bit more positivity in my life. The benefits of keeping a positivity jar: What I like about keeping the positivity jar is that it forced me to find something good from my day to write about. If I couldn’t think of something, I wrote down a quote that I’d been reflecting on lately. Looking for something good from my day allowed me to find the good, even if I didn’t have the best day of my life. …

Something different

Something interesting happened to me the other day. A tiny little green turtle made its way to my foot when I was walking at the park. My family and I stood there observing the tiny turtle making it’s way down the road. It was one of the most beautiful things that has ever happened to me. Things like this mean a lot to me. They hold deep meaning. I stood there watching this tiny little turtle make its way to my foot. In this case, the turtle reminded me of pace. How sometimes it takes you a while to learn, to grow, or to be honest with yourself. And that’s totally okay. There comes a time when the life lesson or growth or clarity is right in front of you, and you just can’t keep running away or hiding away from it. You have to confront it, even if it means losing, even if it means being afraid. Please note that I will be taking a blogging break yet again. As always, I super appreciate …

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.
