My day is off to a positive start.

It’s common to vent and complain about circumstances that feel unfair. We fall back to feeling fear, anxiety, or uncertainty, often based on messages we received as children.

Instead, we can choose to reframe situations. We can look at our history to see that in fact we are competent. We can believe we are capable of changing previous patterns into positive outcomes.

When I wake with a smile and hopeful anticipation, my day is off to a positive start.

  1. Positivity is not about expecting the best to happen, but its about accepting that whatever happens is for the best!
    Liked the idea of waking up with a smile!

    When i work to find good things happening, i find them and life goes much better.

    • Yes, isn’t that lovely? and when we don’t even have to work, when these good things just keep flowing and we notice, heaven on earth!

  6. It’s lovely to start off the day with a smile on one’s face 🙂 We can as you say re-frame situations, and remember that we have come far already. Thanks Beth, great post!

    • We have come far already… that’s part of aging, isn’t it? Realizing how far we’ve come. Our themes mesh.

  7. A smile to start a new day…yes, I can do that:)
    Thank you Beth.
