This was on PostSecret last week and has been very applicable to my life in the past week or two and very much describes my outlook on life. Recent events have made me thankful for how I was raised and that I have grown to be a mature young adult even at the age of 21. If we would all just take the chance to look around at others’ lives around us, we might see that our worries aren’t so bad and that we have more than many hope for.
I’m a strong believer that a positive attitude leads to a more positive life, as this postcard reiterates. Everyone has negativity in their life (that’s right, everyone), but when that’s all you choose to focus on, that’s all you’ll see. You won’t see the wonderful people, places and opportunities that are in your life. Because everyone has those wonderful things in their life too, even if they’re not as apparent all the time.
We hear it all the time in music, movies and books, but life really is a beautiful thing. Honestly, the fact that you’re alive and breathing is a positive that should outweigh all the negatives. Having a positive outlook on life and deciding your life should be wonderful shouldn’t be a secret, but a common occurrence. It’s a wonderful life. Enjoy it every day.
