monday motivation: optimism
I already posted this quote on my Facebook page last week, but I loved it so much I had to share it here, too. That Lincoln guy? Kinda awesome. And this quote? Totally amazing. There are so many powerful sentiments wrapped up in those 15 words—the pointlessness of negativity, the lesson of being thankful for what we have, the impressive power of flipping our mindset. Whenever I find myself plummeting into a negativity spiral, I always try to bring myself out of it by flipping the negativity on its head. Finding the silver lining may be a cliché, but for me, it’s an important method for keeping a positive perspective.
Worried about something? Or a lot of things? Write them down. Get all your fears out on paper. And then flip it on its head and write down right next to it the positives in the situation.
Do you try to see the sunny side of life? When’s the last time it was really hard for you to stay optimistic?
