A couple of years ago I was on this #startwithpositive kick on Instagram. I'd make quick memes with words of inspiration to help myself, and others, start with positive intentions. I must admit when I was younger I was definitely a negative person. Over the years I've improved myself and my life to fight the negativity and depression, and I will admit it is not easy. Humans tend to go the negative route in many situations, even people who would label themselves as a "positive" or "happy" person have plenty of down moments. This is just being human. I do believe we can overcome that and reset ourselves. Let's face it, the world tends to be an overwhelmingly cruel place, but I do see a more positive world emerging.Read More

Let's face it, I haven't always been the most positive person in the world. In fact, I used to be downright negative. I suffered from depression, anxiety, and an overall sense of "who gives a f*@k". Now, at almost 30 years old, I've begun to really change that attitude. Why? Because it is an attitude. I used to buy into the pharmaceutical companies pusher idea of depression medicines, but then I began to learn about energy, positive reinforcement, affirmations, yoga, meditation, and I became a full time vegetarian. What does all of this have to do with one another? It helped me get to the point where I kicked the meds and started living my life. Is it easy? NO. Is it rewarding? YES. Will it work for you? That's up to you. I can't say that anything is a fix all, but now I realize that 99% of my depression was my outlook. I'm not going to go into all the specifics, but to simplify it, you are energy. We are all energy, thoughts are energy, and we have no idea how powerful we really are. We can direct our thoughts towards positive thinking or take the easy route and wallow in self-pity. And yes, self-pity is always the easy route, but it's the bypass to life.Read More
