Be Strong and Believe Even During the Challenging Times
Positive thinking has been a popular topic in the last few years. You would think that I am 100% a positive person all the time since I have a background in psychology, but I am human! Everybody has their moments when things are not going quite right. We get inpatient and frustrated and lose our cool or we start thinking about all the negative things that could happen in a certain situation. Even worse, if one or two things go bad, we start to BELIEVE that all things thereafter will follow on that course.
Direction of Your Soul
It is important to stop every now and then and take an assessment of where our thoughts and beliefs are leading us. Are we headed in the direction we really want to go or are we distracted by the chaos of life? I think the hardest part of thinking positively is not just changing your thoughts to believe in better outcomes and having love for yourself and family and friends despite all the junk that goes on, but thinking positively when nothing seems to be going well.
How do you laugh, love, and smile even when it is raining and storming outside? How do you keep moving on a positive forward track when you have never seen a rainbow? You take steps towards LOVE.
The Wisdom of the Soul
One way to look at the hard times in life is to look at those moments as our greatest teachers of wisdom. We are not on this earth just to stagnate and remain still. Growing, learning, and developing connections to others is part of how we change and become better humans and better souls. Some of the bad stuff that happens in life is difficult and challenging that is true, but if we let ourselves remain in that state of thinking that only bad things happen in life, then how will we ever believe that the sun will come out again?
Power of Love
The most amazing strength that our souls have is the ability to believe in the power of love and healing even when we are hurting the most. If we can activate our abilities to use positive thinking and beliefs such as “I am healthy,” “I am strong,” or “I can do anything,” then we are allowing our souls to not only heal and release old pain and trauma, but we are building a new future that revolves around our greatest good for ourselves and the world. I think we can overcome the bad times and find a positive view of life both in the sun and in the rain. Don’t stop believing because you can make it through anything!
