The Way I See It... Choosing a Positive Attitude

Hey guys! I'm back with another post for my "The Way I See It" series. I'm really enjoying this series so far, I'm back on track and that feels pretty good! Today I'm going to be talking about having a positive attitude and the choice I made to be this way. Let's get into it!

When I was younger, I was not a positive person. I complained all the time, I took things personally and I was just generally not very happy. I guess I just wasn't conscious of how my mind worked and how I could actually choose to be positive. Everybody around me had some degree of negativity (everybody does) but all of it changed thanks to two contestants on MKR called Carly and Tresne who labelled themselves on MKR as "best friends" but are actually married. They didn't tell the public when they were on the show as they wanted to be judged on their cooking instead of their sexuality, no doubt it would have been hard anyway as same-sex marriage is illegal in Australia. Anyway back to the point. They were so positive and I felt so good when I saw them on TV and I really wanted to have that outlook on life. I found out that if I looked at things positively, I felt good and the right people liked being around me. As I mentioned in my last post, psychologists have found that it takes around three months for an action to become a habit, so every time I thought something negative, I stopped myself and turned that thought around and now I'm a generally positive person.

The point of the story is, you don't come right out of your mother going "well that hurt, but I'm so glad I'm out in the world now!" Not quite, haha! You don't have to be positive from the start, you can start right now. For me personally, the internet, specifically the blogging community is filled with positive people who have helped me on my journey, below will be the links of two of the most positive people on the internet you can visit to boost your positivity and generally make you feel happy.

Rainbow-Rose Blossom's blog and YouTube channel! She has been through some very difficult things but she has come out of them with a smile on her face, rainbow hair and a beautiful new name. She radiates positivity and is honestly like a personal life coach!

Marianne's website! This girl is amazing! She posts about mental well-being, physical health and inspirational quotes mainly. She has an enormous heart and is so kind and positive. If I'm feeling unmotivated in any part of my life, I visit her blog and immediately feel better. Keep in mind that she has just launched her new website a couple of weeks ago (congrats again Marianne!) but if you want to check out her previous blog, you won't be disappointed!

Thank you very much for reading this post! Are you a positive person? What do you do to boost you positivity? Tell me in the comments. Thank you again and I'll see you shortly!
