Hey, remember that time I started those "memes" that were about being positive? Yeah, I don't either, it's been a few years, but here's the thing- I decided it was time to revisit them. They honestly helped me through some weird challenging times, they're just little droplets of wisdom, and with the insanity in today's world, I think they're pretty important.
We tend to focus on the negative, whether collectively or on an individual level, and that's such a lame human trait when you think about it. My great-grandmother (and namesake) used to say "It's just as easy to be happy as it is to be sad." Of course my mother used to tell me this in my youth and I'd blow it off, but as I've grown older I've discovered that lady had a pretty damn good point. It's all a choice how we interact with the world. Sure, crappy things pop up, tragedy happens, things can get pretty grim, but it's up to us whether we learn and move forward with a positive view or let the dark times consume us.
Anyway, I've started an Instagram account (another Instagram account... ) called Start With Positive, and I'm redesigning all the sayings.
I'd love it if you followed Start With Positive for little bits of positive energy! I think we all could use little reminders to be positive beings. When we start to act how we want the world to be, it really does manifest. Nothing will ever be perfect, but some extra positive vibes sure can't hurt anything...
Stay positive, see the good in the world, be the good in the world.
