Being Positive

So things have been a little quiet on here recently as life has just being very busy at the moment, lots of ups and downs! I had a frankly rubbish week but things have really picked up now after being able to look at things with a bit more of a positive attitude so I thought that would be a good thing to talk about today, being positive.
It's something that if I'm honest I've always struggled with, I tend to like many people see the negatives in situations first, it takes me a while to think about things rationally as well, I let my emotions rule my life a lot. I've been working on looking at things in a more positive light recently as well as thinking about being a little more relaxed, I've always been just a tad too serious I think.
For me one thing that really helps is reminding myself of good things that I've got coming up in the next few weeks or months, things to help take my mind off rubbish situations. Last week I did just that and wrote a list of things I have to look forward to and the sheer length of that list was enough to make me sit back and think. I realised that things will definitely get better and I have lots to smile about, I'm really lucky at the moment to have some amazing people in my life and lots of fun plans coming up.
I think staying positive is all about remembering that life has been really good in the past and will be just as good again soon if you can ride out the bad bits. No one's life is perfect even if it seems that way, especially online it's easy to think that your favourite blogger or youtuber is perfect but reminding yourself that everyone has bad days can help. For me as well music is a big part of cheering me up, I never used to turn to music but nowadays I pop on one of my Spotify playlist (perhaps sing along a little) and that always makes me feel a bit better.
It's fair to say this post is a little all over the place but I've been away from my blog for a little while now so I guess I just wanted to have a bit of a ramble about everything on my mind!

  1. I am forever focusing on the bad and I have a lot lately! Most thought are in my day to day thinking as they involve my future with my partner! I think that everyone has their own problems and they are all important but when you are younger it is the years to be care free and forget about the bad things! Xx

    1. I do wish my younger years were time to be care free but that just isn't me and with the things going on in my life just don't have that privilege like others my age, I get on with things though :) x

    2. I know you have your health issues and that can be hard. I don't like seeing the younger generation pile so much on their own shoulder I did that and it wasn't a good experience for me. Where as no I am in my late twenties and I face a world of problems every day I long for the days when things were easier!! Good luck with the positive out luck I hope it works for you!
