The Power Of Positivity

The title of this post may sound a bit cliche, but really it’s got so much truth. All I’ve been able to think about lately is my new yard. Thing’s have changed a lot in the last couple weeks, we’ve been very hard at work getting it going. Our new friend Tree, (still can’t get over that name) has turned out to be absolutely wonderful. He brought us all sorts of goodies like homemade lamb stew (my favorite, as I mentioned in my last post), healthy brownies, kombucha, self-picked veggies, it’s amazing. The man is out there doing good for the environment and we need more people like him.

Anyways we’ve drawn out our set plans. Tree had a rough draft on paper, and now we’ve perfected it. We did all the weeding required and dug up most of our backyard, things are coming along great and I cannot wait to share the end result with you guys.

Have Something To Look Forward To 

laugh-and-be-happyPeople have always questioned my happiness, and why I can walk into a room with a gloomy energy and lighten the mood. It’s because I always have something to look forward to; like my garden. It’s also about what your focusing on. Everyone has good and bad things going on in their life, or at least the potential for both. Unfortunately it seems that most people dwell on the negatives instead of realizing how good they have it. If you have a roof over your head, you have people that love you and you’re not starving, the only reason your unhappy is because you choose to be.

Everyone wants a flashy car, a big house, tons of money in the bank and a healthy lifestyle with no stress. However people often don’t realize what it actually takes to obtain those things. You aren’t born into a successful life, you may have an upper hand because your parents are rich or something, but in the long run that isn’t going to do much for you. You need to learn to provide for yourself, learn what makes you happy, and then make the best of what you have, not the worst. Anybody can find things to be negative about. I could have spent my time here talking about how my dad died at a young age, or how my brother has been an alcoholic since he was a teenager, but no I’m not going to do that. If you re-read this blog you won’t find anything negative, because I make the best of my situation, I always have. Yes I have a great life and never have I felt different, even when times were hard I saw no point in dwelling over it.

So yeah, my main motive behind  making this post was to:

  1. Drop in and let you know I’m still going to be posting, I’ve just been crazy busy.
  2. Try to bring some light into peoples day, and try to have people see the world from a different perspective, it’s not all bad. In fact there is much more potential for good than bad, so make the best of it.

Did I mention I spent a ton of money getting my trees and bushes removed so we can plant new ones? It’s okay though, I’m not dwelling on it. Instead I’m imagining what that money spent is going to do for me a year from now, and I’m very happy about it.
