Everyone, and I mean everyone, has a masterpiece within them. You know when you meet someone whether or not they are showing you a glimpse of their masterpiece. It’s written all over them –their walk, their talk, their stance, their look. They exude self-confidence. They have a warm and welcoming manner that makes you and others in their company want to know them more. In fact, from the moment they smile you can’t help but smile back.
When you look in the mirror are you smiling back? Can you see a glow in your cheeks, a twinkle in your eye and an aura of happiness so radiant that it makes you happy?
Sometimes we have a huge amount of pain and worry in our lives that it can be very hard to smile in the mirror. A knock-back can knock us so far down that sometimes it is hard to get up. When we’re down and worn-out with very little energy to get out of bed in the morning those negative feelings can be very consuming and powerful. It can be hard to shift those negative thoughts as they keep running around in our mind. But what good are these negative thoughts doing? Are they taking away the pain, the worry and the stress? Are they making you feel good about your life? Of course, they are not! These negative thoughts have a huge effect on the body as stress begins to build and unhappiness takes over.
Sometimes life can be hard, very hard. However the way in which we handle those hard moments is our own choice. Don’t let the negative thoughts build up so bad that the goodness doesn’t shine from every pore. You deserve to be happy. You deserve good things. Fuel your thoughts with praise, goodness, happiness and positivity to unveil your masterpiece. Turn those negative thoughts into powerful POSITIVE thoughts!
The following activities can foster our positive thoughts and dreams:
- Exercise can help you feel relaxed and good about yourself.
