Words To Live By

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

These are words I live by. I'm a big old believer in the power of positive thinking.

But I haven't always been. In high school I remember actually saying out loud a few times, it's better to just expect the worst because if it happens it doesn't suck as bad. And by "the worst" I probably meant like not getting a call from a boy that night or having to stay at home yet again because I wasn't in the know on where the parties were happening. You know, "the worsttttttt."

That boo who girl from high school drives me nuts for two reasons. A. no one likes to hang around Debbie Downer. Positive attitudes are infectious, so are negative attitudes. I'm not saying you have to pretend to be happy all the time, God knows I'm not, I'm just saying you don't always have to be the person saying no.

And B. (now this is where I get a little hippy dippy) I truly believe there's something to thinking and believing good things will come your way, than in turn brings good things your way. The Universe is not against you, it's rooting for you.

I could talk about this stuff for days. DAYS I tell you. It just really gets me going and I know firsthand my life has gotten significantly better since I decided to see the glass half full rather than half empty.

But I'll spare you the energy talk today because I know it's not everyone's deal. However if it is your deal, I suggest reading books like The Secret (duh), The Power, The Alchemist, The Power of Positive Thinking, Write It Down Make It Happen, Daily Affirmations ... or anything similar.

And at the very least simply reading a book about thinking positive makes you feel better, so it's not like you have anything to lose.

What words do you live by?

  1. I am such a believer in the power of positive thinking!

  2. i need to be better about positive thinking, because I really do agree, it can do wonders

  3. I truly believe you can do and have anything you want if you have the right attitude! It's amazing where positivity can get you in life.

  4. Kinda needed to hear this today, I've been a funk all day and all I see in front of me are to-do lists and I feel like I just. can't. do. anything. Thanks for this, Tay. Doing my best to be positive.

  5. Oh seriously positive thinking. The universe really is rooting for you!
    The Alchemist changed my life!

  6. "trust the vibes you get, energy doesn't lie" :) love it!

  7. I am ALL ABOUT positive thinking. There really is something to it.

  8. life is so much more fun if you have a positive attitude! =) i.e. the people at the bank (for work, who actually goes into banks anymore? ;) ) will never know I'm having a bad day because I always walk in with a smile on my face. why bring my negative attitude in there and then not enjoy my visit with them?

  9. Life definitely gets better when you radiate positive vibes - I think it's partly because it helps attract happy, positive people that will help make life more fulfilling. Great post!

  10. love that trust the vibes, so, so true!!

  11. I have read the Secret and the Alchemist! Right there with you. Sometimes my bf will say negative things, and I'm like please do not put that into the universe. Quit thinking it! haha.

  12. I'm right here with you drinking the positive thinking kool aid! Is it sad that I've read most of the books you listed?

  13. That is a great quote! I definitely was an 'expect the worst' kind of thinker in the high school but I am such a believer in positive thinking now !!

  14. I am also a believer of positive thinking if we think negative things our lives will be surrounded in negative things

  15. Yes, yes YES!!! I couldn't agree more. Also, I'm not surprised that you have that attitude, it shines through in your posts and everything you do. You WILL get famous and "make it", there is no doubt in my mind!

  16. I feel ya! And those are all great books! *handclap* for this post

  17. Love this post!
    Don't forget to smile :)

  18. With children the rooms need to be enhanced to help the family stay together. Piries hotel is one of the family friendly hotels. It is a 3-star hotel, one of the best, if you are searching for hotels in Edinburgh. It is near Edinburgh Train Station and near the Edinburgh Zoo.
