How do you talk to people & to yourself? Do you put things in a positive way or a negative way? Do you try to see the good in things or do you immediately jump to the bad?
One thing in specific that I always key in on is when people say “thats just my luck” or “bad things always happen to me”.
Even if you don’t realize it, thats you being negative & blaming anything/anyone for things that happen in your life. But let me ask you something, how is talking like that making your situation better? In all honestly, its probably making it worse. Bc u saying “my luck sucks” just triggers you to start thinking about all the other unfortunate things that have happened in your life & it just becomes a negative circle.
So a small example would be that I spill something everyday of my life. If u follow me on snapchat, you are more than aware of my “spill of the day” posts. But do I say “just my freaking luck” every time I spill something & let it ruin my day?? No. Bc it is my fault & getting upset about it does NOTHING for me. Even if its spilling an entire pot of coffee in my bed… (yes thats happened), I still have no reason to go around pouting about it & how bad my “luck” sucks. & at this point my spills honestly make my day bc of how consistent I am its redic.
I know there are much bigger things in life that affect us a lot more than a spill. Cancer, injuries, loosing loved ones…. None of those things are fun or easy to deal with. But if u get diagnosed with diabetes & say “of course I got Diabetes that’s my luck”… how is that mindset going to get you anywhere??
God has a plan for all of us. He knows whats going to happen today, tomorrow, & next year. That alone should be humbling enough to make u take a few steps back & think “ok, someone just hit my car… but it’s not the end of the world & it could be worse”. Even just TRYING to look at the positive in situations makes it better. The more you practice, the easier it gets. The more positive you are, the happier you are.
So next time u go to McDonalds & their ice cream machine is down… instead of thinking “OF COURSE ITS DOWN THE ONE DAY I WANT A CONE”…. Laugh about it think ok I didn’t need it anyway 🤗🥰
