imconfident

I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

What are you thankful for today?

on October 23, 2015

We all have things to be thankful for, but too often we are so focused on our problems that we can’t even see anything to be thankful for.

Life can be very difficult at times but there is no point dwelling on our problems and staying stuck in negative thinking.  If we look at our problems with a positive perspective, it will be much easier to deal with them.

It doesn’t matter what kind of situation we are in.  We can focus on the good things or the bad things.  That is our choice.  Focusing on the bad things will just bring us pain and unhappiness.  Focusing on the good things can bring us peace and happiness.  Sometimes it can be hard to see the good through the bad but it is possible if we try hard to create a new habit of positive thinking.

Start looking for the good instead of the bad and be thankful for all the good things in your life.   Here are some ideas:

  • be thankful that you have family and friends
  • be thankful that you have a house to live in and food to eat
  • be thankful that you have a job, even if you don’t like it
  • be thankful that you have clean water to drink
  • be thankful that you have a car to drive or a bus to take
  • be thankful that you have some money in your pocket
  • be thankful that you have ears to hear and eyes to see
  • be thankful that you have arms and legs that work
  • add your own ideas – there is so much to be thankful for
