Happy weekend Ladies!
Call it “The Secret” or what you want. But there is a grain of truth in how the universe treats you depending on how YOU feel.
Personally, I’ve experienced some really down moments when all you really want to do is to dig yourself into a hole and hide away from the world and cry. Times when nothing goes right and everything you do goes wrong, people ignore you, you say the wrong things, people get mad at you, you get mad at people, your skin breaks out, your makeup looks crap … its a vicious cycle, if you notice. And the more sorry you feel for yourself, the deeper down you spiral.
When you are mad or down, you will find yourself picking at the smallest thing and blowing it up into something big, be it in reality or in your mind. Everything looks wrong and you start going “Why me?”
Over the recent years, when things start going belly up, I pick myself up and force myself to look on the bright side and to think positive. There are always 2 sides to everything, I’ve learnt. You can wallow in the dark side or look on the brighter side and go from there. There is a lot one can learn from Star Wars LOL!
But seriously, I’ve found that when I look on the brighter more positive side of things, the dark clouds don’t hover too long and everything will start taking a turn for the better. It takes a lot of effort to smile when you feel like crying, but it gets easier as you go along and soon those smiles will be unforced.
And when I stay positive, good things are easier to come by and they come by more often. Be it a friend dropping a line out of the blue to say hello, meeting a new friend you get along with, a fun event I might be invited to, or just good things in general. And skin breakouts heal a lot faster too!
So, hard as it is, do not underestimate the power of thinking positive. The Universe is listening and watching.
