Hey, let's talk about....being positive

It's that time of week again for another "Hey, let's talk about" session. I've had some positive feedback from some of you lovely readers so I'm happily continuing.
I decided to create this since I absolutely love the section called "Hey, it's ok" in Glamour Magazine. So I thought why not create my own little creation for my little blog. Every time I pick up a copy of Glamour that is the first page I turn to. I always have a random selection of topics spinning through my head & I just pick one at random & away we go....

This weeks is about being positive. I think in life it is really important to try & be positive as much as we can. I know obviously sometimes it is a lot easier said than done. Are you a positive person? A glass half empty or a glass half full kind of person? Can you never seem to look on the bright side of life? We are all completely different & some will find it a lot harder than others to be positive. Especially when you might be going through a really rough time in life. Nobody is fully positive all the time at all, no matter what it may seem like on the outside. Everyone falls apart a little at times, we are all human after all. I'm going to share my top two tips of what I do to be positive.

- Always look on the bright side of life -
 Pretty cheesy but that is exactly what I do. Remember the terrible times will pass, it might not seem it at the time but you will look back & realise you made it & were stronger than you believed you were. I like the quote, everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain but you can't have a rainbow without a little rain.

-  Remember there is always someone worse off than you -
This is one that I always go by. No matter how bad my life gets I always think, you know what I'm sure there is someone worse of than me. Some people don't have a roof over their heads, a bed to sleep in, clean water to wash with, food to eat & water to drink.

Here's a little image for you..

I always find this quote quite interesting & pretty honest too.
If you aren't very positive I think you should try that little bit harder, give it a go..
You never know you might just really enjoy it..I know for one I enjoy life a lot more when I'm thinking positive & not beating myself up about stuff.

Do you have any tips to share on how you stay positive?
Please leave them in the comments below, I'd love to read them.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I would be the kind of a girl who is a glass half empty, but I agree with you, when there's people out there in the world who are starving and who are living with no shelter, it makes me feel bad, then I realize, I'ma very lucky person. A lucky person with family, friends and a possible future. So that is what get's me through, however daunting about the future can be a bad thing as well, so my new step in life to take every day as it comes. Live in the moment and treat every day as if it is your last.

    Lots of love,

    1. Brilliant response Michaela! :) Take each day as it comes, one step at a time is my moto :) xxxx

  2. It's so easy to be negative when things aren't working out but it's so important to be positive and see the best in everything :)

    1. Exactly Debi :)
      What's the saying? Happy people don't have the best of everything but they make the best of what they have? It's something along them lines ha ha :) xxxx

  3. I'm really struggling with being positive recently. The love of my life broke my heart a few weeks ago and it doesn't feel like it's going to get any better. But this post helped a lot and my friends and family are amazing.

    For me to be positive, I need to be doing things and keeping my mind off the negatives. xx

    1. Oh no, we have all been there..trust me,it will get better :) Aww,thats brilliant! & I'm the same,keep busy..as soon as my head hits the pillow my mind goes into over drive,unless I read a book :) xxxx

  4. Great post! "I once saw a man with no shoes, then I met a man with no feet." This quote always helps me when I'm struggling to stay positive.
