Created by pain

Think back to one of your greatest accomplishments. For some, that’s giving birth, winning a race, or completing a life long goal. No matter what comes to mind… I’m sure we can agree that it took lots of hard work, and maybe even some sweat, tears and pain. Now let me ask you – Was it worth it? Usually pain is the ugliest Creator of beauty.

Find your silver lining

It’s true… You can wake up on the wrong side of the bed and sometimes the glass is just half empty. Everyday can’t be a good day, but everyday can have silver linings. Some days it may be a little harder than most days to find a reason to think positive, but don’t give up on the search. Find your silver lining. #Happen2Life

Positive earworms only

When you think of earworms, what comes to mind? Christmas songs? Goofey jingles? Someone starts humming and you can usually finish the tune… You hear these sounds start and you can’t get them out of your head for the rest of the day! Did you know that phrases can also act as earworms? Especially negative phrases. For example, if you hear “you can’t” enough… Usually it will effect you or you’ll start to believe it and convert it to “I can’t!” Tune your ears to positive earworms only.

Chase a dream or two

We don’t always reach our goals on the first try. Sometimes it takes months, years, or even decades! Don’t get discouraged by the lack of results. Effort builds endurance which is what it takes to reach most goals. Just work that ‘muscle of effort’ so you can chase a dream or two. Eventually, you will reach the goal. Eventually, you will #Happen2Life

Wear confidence

Most people (at least the majority of females…) can relate to rummaging thru their closet to find the perfect outfit. Often the frustration shared is that nothing looks (or fits) right. More often than not, if you call a friend for feedback they will tell you that you look fine and you don’t need all the flashy colors or extra accessories. So what’s missing? Sometimes you just need a little self-assurance. Take the time to find your confidence and don’t apologize for wearing it.

Keep pushing

All of us have encountered struggle at some point. If you’re alive, you’ve had to push thru something. It starts at a very early age; and some master the art then– for others, it makes a little more time. The trick is to keep pushing because the moment you give up is the moment you fail.

Moment of happiness

I remember starting out each day in elementary school with a moment of silence. Since it was a public school, the principal wasn’t allowed to tell us to pray, but when you grow up in the Bible belt- you know that’s exactly what it means. As a child, I would take this time to pray, meditate on a scripture I had read earlier, or just think positive thoughts – which I didn’t know at the time were affirmations. As adults, we should take these brief moments as well. Each day offer an authentic moment of happiness. Sometimes you have to think really hard to pick it out, but it’s totally worth the effort and helps out when you need to reset a bad day.
