We all have bad days; but the choices we make can decide if our life will be happy and peaceful in the next few years! Remember, staying positive is a choice. So choose your mindful state of being! Choices are 'powerful decisions' of your life.
Do you wish to navigate through life with a closed vision, or you wish for certain possibilities? Have you ever tried picking up those options- you thought; can never work out! If not, it's time to try them. Tune your mind to just focus on the good things- you have in your life. The first important thing to do is; "make peace with your choices." Accept them mindfully (even if they seem negative and impossible). Choose to invite peace and calmness to your every day life, with every decisions-you make.
Make these simple choices and experience a positive makeover
1. Train your mind, body and soul to be positive, first.
Practice in every way to just see the good side of people and circumstances; even if it means trying harder, several times. You are the "work" that needs some deep attention and care. Take time to be positive- in all aspects. First, reinforce positivism in yourself. Feeling positive is easy, but staying positive requires work. Lots of work!
2. You are a 'present' person who does not have a past!
Learning from past is important, but dwelling there permanently can be harmful. Whatever you do, people will try to take you back to your past- by judging "what you were"; as they will never be interested in knowing "who you are" now. Don't bother! React to those criticisms and negative comments; as if you never had a past, and or you don't remember what you were then! Just focus on your present.
3. Fall in love every day.
There are tons of reasons you like about your every day life. Pay attention to only those things that make you feel happy and blessed (in a day). Love yourself and know yourself more every day. A small positive change can ignite infinite possibilities, and will give you reasons to love more, live more and accept more.
4. Honor your dreams.
Do not give-up on your dreams, just because you don't get more likes and appreciations; just because others don't believe in you; just because you were not good at it! Choose a purpose that gives you energy and reasons to feel that; "life is a beautiful gift to you, and not a burden."
5. Connect, learn and share with 'positive spirits'.
Spend time with people, with whom you can learn and improve; who brings out the best in you. Choose to see the good around you. Stop ruminating about your problems and weaknesses. You can be much more than you are right now.
6. Choose to be honest with your feelings.
Stop tagging reasons to your unhealthy negative feelings. We all have more negatives inside us than even we can imagine; but what differentiates us from happy positive people is the 'acceptance of one's attitude'. When we choose to accept- just the way we are; we are often hit by the 'urge to change.' We feel the need to get better and do better. But it should be a honest change; and not just pretend act of betterment! Stop blaming your fortune, stop blaming others and accept your self-worth. Respect yourself.
7. Choose to live life above your problems.
Rise above your doubts, disappointments and distress. Life is much more beautiful and pleasant once we choose to live with problems. Every day brings us so many reasons to love life and live it mindfully. Create excuses to see the goodness in life. Create a life mission (s) and start working dedicatedly towards it.
8. Choose a peaceful life over stressful life.
We are all victims of everyday stresses; but only we can choose, how not to feel stressed! "Even I often scream, shout, complain, cry, feel very tired and overburdened; but I try to stay calm and handle the situation more peacefully and calmly. The very conscious feeling of 'this is not the right way;' gives me reasons to be more patient, calm, funny, sweet- in my next approach to handle the situation. So choose your actions and reactions more appropriately, and reduce stress from your life.
