The following image quotes are all pinworthy in my opinion (along with some of my own opinions). You do follow me on Pinterest, right?!
I woke up Friday morning with this exact intent after reading a book the night before about shifting thoughts and feelings. So when my debit card number got stolen, I didn’t even get riled up and continued to stay positive all day long. I maybe shouldn’t have had a few drinks later that night though as alcohol can be a depressant and affect positive thoughts.
Life is definitely too short to not be happy. I sometimes question why God lets some things happen (i.e. my debit card # getting stolen) but try to be patient knowing he has a bigger plan in store and may be teaching us a lesson in life. God doesn’t give us more than we can handle.
So if you’re not happy, cut out the negativity in your life. Unfortunately, as with my dad’s death, sometimes things may get worse before they get better. But again lessons are learned. I learned it wasn’t my fault that my dad wasn’t happy, and someone else couldn’t make him happy. He had to make the choice to be happy himself. I pray he’s happy in Heaven.
So smile, laugh, forgive, believe and love all over again. And that ending quote sums up just about everything. See more quotes I pinned (the boyfriend quotes may be worthy enough for a future post, so stay tuned).
