Depending on what your situation is, and what your thinking is like, the world may seem like a bad place. This may hold even truer if you’re an avid follower of news media and are perhaps going through a rough period in your life. I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that the world is perhaps a bad place. Real world events of the human world can easily support that. BUT that is what you don’t necessarily have power over, so why not focus on what we do have power over?
A ship only sinks if water is let in. Similarly, a human’s mind will slowly degrade if negativity is allowed to enter.
The only solution to negativity is positivity. In a negative world, we all have to somehow find that positivity in our life and hold on to it. But at the same time embrace whatever new experiences come our way. So some of you may wonder what I’m exactly getting at with this. What I’m saying is that no matter how negative the world, there will always be positivity all around you.
How is that possible?
Unlike negativity which is shown to us in bulk everyday, positivity exists in little traces all around us. If you face a challenge that you don’t particularly look forward to, find something you enjoy about it and hold that as a placeholder for your positive feelings on it. If it is the world you’re concerned about, look at your own life and appreciate the bonds you have with others. Everyone in your life is unique somehow, and they can help feed you the positive energy you need through a valued trust and friendship.
What this comes down to is your ability to be able to introspect. It is there where you will take the opportunity to analyze and appreciate what you have in your life. It is also there where you will study the little details of your issues, in life and could very well find some meaning in them. Whatever happens, happens for a reason.
Embrace the world with an open and free mind. And remember to keep on smiling.
