Positivity

Picture taken by Jean-Daniel Francoeur from Pexels

You are loved. You are wanted. You’re a success. You are intelligent. You are healthy. You are wonderfully made. You are a winner.

I wrote this because I believe this. I believe this for myself, and I believe this for other people. You have to see it and want it. You have to believe it in order to achieve it.

I am kind. I am considerate. I am friendly. I am optimistic. I see the good in people. Everyone is my friend. I know that people want me to succeed. Am I being delusional?

I deleted a post on Twitter today. I was about to display my frustration about people’s following to follower ratio. I was about to cause division. I was about to cause dissent. I was about to upset some people, even if I didn’t plan on calling them out by name.

I was wrong. I was wrong for considering it. I was wrong for thinking about it. I was wrong about posting it. I was right for deleting it.

In life, we get upset about some things that are trivial, like someone taking our favorite parking spot or someone disagreeing with us about politics. Before we even realize it, we will let these things ruin our day. Meanwhile, somebodies’ spouse has died. Someone’s village got bombed. Someone got diagnosed with cancer. A lot worse can happen to us than losing a parking spot.

I am blessed. I am anointed. I am healthy. I am healed. I am grateful. I am thankful.

I will not complain about the trivial things. I will not insult or poke fun at people. I will not disrespect anyone. I will respect other people’s opinions. I will spread positivity, not negativity. I will forgive people that wronged me. I will be forgiven.

I will be loved. I will love. I will be…love.

  1. Thank you for the reminder. I think it’s very easy in this day and age, with everything that is happening in the world, for people to forget that everyone is carrying some kind of cross. If the world is to be a better place, we all have to set that example of kindness, generosity of spirit, and tolerance, which is not easy. #lovewins
