When life is filled with more negativity, grandioso highlight reels, and comments that cut to the core, you have to learn how to stay positive.
This world is not fair, but it still can be a beautiful journey through all the mess. It’s just finding the garden in all the thistles.

Staying positive doesn’t always mean you are the happy-go-lucky, smiley person with not a care in the world.
When you can see through the mess that clouds your mindset, it opens the doors to positivity, something greater than what is happening at that moment.
Because in the moment, you could be drowning in the chaos with all hope being stripped from every breath you take.
Yet we must remember that nothing crumbles in a day. How to stay positive gives you a lifeline to look just beyond the mess and climb out of the deep set darkness that envelops your hope.
Not really. Just a mindset shift.
But this mindset shift isn’t common practice.
Instead we sit with our mess and chaos allowing ourselves to be drawn deeper into the swells of disappointment, failure, and fear.
The happy-go-lucky person, who seems to have it all together, has struggles and troubles too. But what gives them the advantage?
How to stay positive!
“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” ~ Gandhi
We let the dirt cloud the nooks and crannies of any hope that remains from the fails of our own. We focus on what we can’t do. We strain to hold back tears for what is lost.
You want the advantage?
Optimism is a game-changer!
Is it real? YES!! Take it and live it!
The K.I.S.S. ~ Live a positive optimistic life!
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ~ Galatians 6:9
When you give up, you nourish the negativity. You feed it and feed upon it. It becomes your normal.
However, if you desire to experience life more abundantly, you have to change the perspective in how you live it.
So how do you live a positive optimistic life; how do you stay positive?
1. Talk more, listen less.
Talk more from the optimistic point of view. Drown out the negative whispers and yells. You have to stop being the cheerleader of negativity.
I read a post this weekend on Facebook, and it read, “I was just in the women’s bathroom, and had to listen to a mom yelling at her early elementary aged kid for losing a wrestling match. He sat on the bathroom floor and cried as she berated him.”
Maybe you were that little kid who was yelled at by your parents for not being good enough. Maybe you were that little kid who was yelled at by your husband, your boss, your teacher, even a stranger.
You can’t let negative whispers and yells diminish your worth.
2. Speak truth to the lies.
There is no reason to encourage lies to grow bigger. Thorns hurt, but roses bloom above the pain. Let the truth set you free from the lies that try to trample you.
If someone calls you fat, speak truth to that lie. I am strong and courageous.
Truth overcomes lies!
3. Love more, fear less.
Love conquers fear.
Armor yourself with the truth of God’s love, grace, and mercy.
When you are at battle with the negativity, love more in the moment. You are twisting fear; it becomes less than not greater than.
“Being a positive influencer, a positive leader isn’t just a state of mind, but a state of action. In all you do, TAKE AIM!!!”
In your day, think about what you focus on. The goals. The to-do list. The appointments. The phone calls. The errands. The bills. The laundry. The dishes. The dinner.
It’s all about the WHAT in your day. You get caught up in the what and forget your WHY!
You are created on purpose with greatness! Wash your feet and don’t drag yourself through the mud. You are worthy!
“Go out. Be present. Be incredible. Be YOU!!!”
