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.

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.

We’re all on our own different paths made up of so many different experiences, but one of the things that connects us all is that we all have problems. Our challenges lead us to very beautiful places. We experience things like …

5 tips to make self improvement easier

Changing your life for better requires tons of patience, effort, and a completely different mindset. Often, we complicate life, by coming up with all of the reasons for why something isn’t possible. Instead, focus your energy on how you can create change even if it’s little by little. Have a humble attitude. Make a little bit of fun of yourself, of your mistakes. If you don’t get things right, there’s room for growth. And growth is where the magic happens. In fact, I’d argue that growth is one of the most beautiful things you can experience & witness. Start now. We often leave change for future. Start with the change you can make now in this present moment. This present moment is that powerful. Even if change means starting on a Thursday or at 3 p.m. Keep learning. Learn from your experiences or from other people. They say everyone is a mirror who reflects to us the qualities we can have if only we set our minds to feel the way we want to feel …
