Positive Mind + Positive Vibes + Positive Life
There are always life events that can make us look at life in a negative way. One small thing can have an impact on our daily lives. I have learned over the past few years that it’s better to live life in “Find Positivity In Everything” state of mind than to let negativity take over my day.
I have more to be happy about than negative.
I was recently on vacation in Belize. I was swimming in the ocean and decided to go snorkeling. I noticed coral where I was swimming, but didn’t pay attention to the danger. I felt a sting in my ankle and returned to shore. I looked at my ankle to see that it wasn’t a small scrape.
I had two options: to call it a day and sit in the sand while everyone else splashed and enjoyed the beautiful crystal turquoise sea, or clean the cut, put on a bandage and enjoy the beautiful paradise in front of me.
Life is too beautiful and a huge blessing not to live it in a positive way!
I chose to be positive. I chose to not let negativity take over my day. There is always a reason to smile and be positive I hope y’all can always find it.
