Think Positive

You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination. – Ralph Marston

Fear. Uncertainty. Lack of self-worth and self-confidence. These are things we must face every day. It keeps us from realizing our potential. What if I told you that you can rid of these hurdles easily? Its as easy as you make of it. That simple. I was a very shy person. This was as recent as High School. I faced these issues and they conquered me on a daily basis. Most of my life, actually.

Soon as I realized that I could use this energy to my advantage, things became much better for me. Think of them as challenges. Ask how you can push yourself today? Think positive.

That’s the rub. There’s where it gets interesting. We’re inclined to be pessimistic by nature. We’re worry-warts. Not all of us, but a good portion of us are very highly critical of ourselves. This is the main reason why we always wish we coulda, instead of reveling in the fact that we did. Its time to rid ourselves of negativity. It won’t completely go away, it never really does, but if we work towards a positive attitude about life, and everything, we could accomplish so much more.

I assume if you’re reading this, you know by now that I’ve recently acquired acting credit on IMDB. Obviously, being their webmaster had something to do with it, but don’t forget that I got there somehow. That somehow was by being myself. My positive self. This came about because of the Year of the Edgar notion. This is the type of thing I am talking about. I also had my first Dungeons and Dragons game last month as I said I would. The last thing I started was learning French. This is on my own, using some old software I had a while back. I haven’t spent any real time with it, but I have taken the first steps.

These are things I’ve wanted to do. So I either did them or begun doing them. You can do the exact same thing. You can accomplish so much by just keeping positive and trying things out. Stress levels will go down and life will be much sweeter.

I’m having the best time of my life right now and I really want others to share in this. Especially now with the way the economy is, there is too much seriousness going on and with life being so short, we need to make the best of our situations. Smile. Enjoy. Be positive.

  1. “…very highly critical of ourselves..”

    these words have such profound resonance…

    …on those days that i loathe looking into the mirror…

    …a mirrored V.A.T.S.; i deconstruct myself and weigh each part…

    … to speculate the “If i were … ” … [.. taller.. thinner.. ]

    …mentally morphing our physical features into some distorted ideal…

    …in order to discard the mask of the pariah..

    *your blog serves to give strength to those whom struggle to cast off the
    yoke of the self-loathing and downtrodden.. the fear of failure, of judgement,
    of rejection.. those are the brands of a former husk. this year we break out;
    we molt.

    my priority has been to help people [w/o judgement] with my skills.
    to care less about my physical dimensions and strive to be healthy.

    although admittedly, my heaviest burdens are that of carrying grudges…

    its a downward spiral, i know..

    one day at a time.. right?..

    i try not to let yesterdays memories adversely affect tomorrows choices.

    to release the desires of my vapid-self..

    i pray for forgiveness.. for myself and others…

    “Smile. Enjoy. Be Positive.”

    indeed,
