I am a true believer in the power of positive thinking.  What you put out there will come back to you.  Also known as Karma baby. If you think positive thoughts, good positive thoughts will fill your heart, life and those around you.

Over the years I’ve taken his philosophy to heart, but it was not always so.  I would fall into the trap of listening to those complain around me and I would want to join in and add my complaining “two cents”.  I would find myself exhausted after these bitch fests, there is no other word for them, and I never, not once felt better after all my complaining.  Just tired and more angry.

Finally I got tired of listening to myself and others complaining, and made a promise to myself to stop when I heard myself start, and also stop those around me.  I would change the subject if someone would start complaining, or if necessary cut the conversation short.  I eventually had to cut certain people from my life, not because they were bad people, but just as I believe in the power of positive thinking, I also believe in the power of negative thinking, and I would much rather be happy than angry.

It is not an unique process to live your life with the extra intentions of positive thinking, but boy, it sure feels good to know you’re contributing some control to all of those outer forces.

Start your week off with positive thoughts and fill up your heart to help you feel happy and healthy.

    Amy, this layered parfait is gorgeous! What a great message behind the post, too. I don’t exactly think positive nor negative thoughts in the morning, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to be positive right when the day begins. Thanks for this kind reminder!
