First of all I believe that a positive attitude is always to be preferred – in every situation. Secondly I believe that there is something positive to everything. And yes, I mean everything . This might seem foolish or silly, but try to look beyond that border for just a few minutes – because it might get inspirational ;)
Imagine you being fired from a lousy job – what a great opportunity to seek new ways.
Imagine you being fired from your dream-job – how good that you now have a lot of things to take with you in your bag. It is way easier to find a new job now, than if you didn’t have that dream-job in the first place!
Imagine your having no income the next 6 months – what a great test of your creativity! You might even find that you don’t even need half of the stuff you normally buy.
Imagine you getting kicked out of your home – again, what a neat opportunity to test your creativity and durability. You might end up losing the pounds that you with your dream-job could afford to eat your way to. Don’t lose hope!
Let’s ramp it up a little – don’t call my heartless now. I’m just trying to stay positive!
Imagine your parents die an unexpected death – what a great possibility to learn about how not giving up hope can completely change your life to the better.
Imagine your husband or wife dies – what a great opportunity to learn how to live with such a loss instead of getting depressed. Maybe you’ve learned a great lot of things to take with you to your next relationship.
Imagine your kids die (I nearly wept a tear there…) – I know that your children can’t be replaced, but now you’ve got the chance to start over. Build up a family again, but differently. And imagine all the freedom you have until you do.
I’m not saying that mourning and sorrow is wrong, because it isn’t. But I know that a lot of people tend to “over-mourn”, which can lead to great displeasure and doesn’t lead to any positive changes.
In one way, all life is about is failure à reflection à improvement à better life quality.
If you really try your hardest, you will find a little snitch of positive material in any situation!
It was never my intention to hurt anybody. I myself felt a huge anvil on my chest writing this, so I am very sorry if I caused some kind of sadness. I just wanted to share my way of thinking, and please do not misunderstand me :)
