Positive Thinking

Our thoughts are not simply ethereal pieces of information that enter our minds and then disappear. The words and ideas that we think can shape our lives and drive us toward success and happiness or failure and distress. How you think and feel can have a profound effect on your ability to recognize opportunity, how well you perform, and the outcome of the goals that you’ve set for yourself. When you maintain an optimistic outlook and make an effort to harbor only positive thoughts, you begin to create the circumstances conducive to you achieving what you desire. You feel in control and few of life’s challenges seem truly overwhelming because it is in your nature to expect a positive conclusion. An optimistic mind is also an honest one. Staying positive does not mean that you ignore difficulties or disregard limitations. Instead, it means spending time focusing only on the thoughts that are conducive to your well-being and progress.

Positive thinking dramatically increases your chances of success in any endeavor. When you’re sure that you are worthy and that achievement is within your grasp, you start to relax and look for solutions rather than dwelling on problems. You are more likely to imagine positive situations or outcomes and disregard the thoughts related to giving up, failure, or roadblocks. What the mind expects, it finds. If you anticipate joy, good health, happiness, and accomplishment, then you will experience each one. Thinking positively may sound like a simple shift in attention – and it is – but it is a mind-set that must be developed. Whenever a negative thought enters your mind, try immediately replacing it with a constructive or optimistic one. With persistence, you can condition your mind to judge fleeting, self-defeating thoughts as inconsequential and dismiss them.

It is within your power to become as happy, content, or successful as you make up your mind to be. Staying positive may not have an immediate effect on your situation, but it will likely have a profound and instantaneous effect on your mood and the quality of your experiences. In order for positive thinking to change your life, it must become your predominant mind-set. Once you are committed to embracing positive thinking, you’ll start believing that everything that you want is within your grasp.

Okay, so I know I promised a painting video and I haven't delivered yet. I'm working on it! I promise to get a video out within the month because next weekend I have two full days to paint. :) Any music suggestions? I'm thinking I'll either paint my ballerina in a previous post or go in a completely different direction - a sillhouette or something beautiful like that. I love me some ballerinas. haha Eek! I'm excited to start making more art videos for you guys! Thanks for the support and love-I'll have my art website up soon as well. xoxoxo

im a sponge- without squarepants.

yeah yeah, I know I talk about love a lot, but it's something I feel a lot of. I'll always have love for you. It will drip from me like a sponge full of water. Nothing you say or do can take that away from me. You can be mean, say mean things, lie to yourself, or say goodbye, but I'll always love you. ALWAYS.
