Be Positive but Be Real …..

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”  – Ashley Smith

Life can be full of positive experiences if we look at them positively but how hard is that to do everyday?  I think most of us can relate to the question “How is everything going?” and we all reply “Great Thanks” and yet is it?

At some point in our life, we have all been afraid to show our true-self to others in fear that others may see us less than perfect and yet, if we felt free to be more honest about our life then perhaps we would work through our issues more and run away less.

Feeling isolated from our feelings is not real and does not help us live our truth. Finding the balance between being positive and real is difficult and yet there is a formula.  I find that when I am honest about my feelings at the time, whether they are sad, angry or happy and can express them freely, I feel more positive.

Try not dwell on any one emotion for long periods because life changes constantly and when we are able connect to each moment completely, we learn to let go easily and this helps us move forward in the right direction.

“Doing something positive will help turn your mood around. When you smile, your body relaxes. When you experience human touch and interaction, it eases tension in your body.”  – Simone Elkeles

We often convince ourselves that we cannot change, that we cannot overcome the circumstances of our lives. That is simply not true. You have been blessed with immeasurable power to make positive changes in your life, so tap into that amazing power and start to live it.

So YES be positive in your life but validate your feelings when they come to the surface and give yourself time to express your feelings and then let them go.  You will find as you live this way, others will also share their truth and life will become deeper for you.

“The real question is, can you love the real you? Not the perfect person you want to be, not the image of the old you, but who you really are.
