Be Kind,

For you know not the strength of your love,

On the heart.

Be Thoughtful,

For you know not the strength of your understanding,

On the Mind.

Be Brave,

For you know not the strength of your courage,

On the Journey.

Staying Positive

IMG_0420

Sometimes, being a creature of night and day, my darkness outweighs my sunshine. I hang out in the fog of my mind and mope about all the things that have not gone right. However, being a instinctively optimist person, my mind does not allow me to stay in this state of mind for too long and here are five things that I do to stay positive and get back into the sunrays of my day.

1.) Listen to Music. It usually starts out with sad songs that reflects my mood but slowly I find myself going on to the happy ones on my playlist. The transition of my moods can make a song in itself.

2.) Think about all the things that have gone right. I know when one is in a ‘sad state of mind’ this is hard, but I force myself to do it and at once I feel grateful. Writing out abstract thoughts usually happens in this phase and usually this time is the poetry hub of my mind.

3.) Take a walk. Nature can be the biggest healer when you are feeling down. The beauty and magnificence can make you feel humbled no matter what. I think about how little my worries are compared to this huge universe. I do not dismiss them as insignificant but I definitely gain perspective from the cosmos.

4.) Think about individuals who are far worse than I am and have no time to reflect on their sorrow. They worry about what to eat for the next day, or whether or not they will live. Again, I feel grateful for my health and mind, and that I am living to see today, and I feel everything else will be just fine.

5.) Count my blessings, talk to my loved ones and cuddle with my fur brother and hug my better half.

I feel light in my heart and the sky is clear in my mind. Staying positive.
