“Every dark cloud has a silver lining.”
This is a quote that if I ever decide to get a tattoo, it would be this. This is a quote that I repeat every single day. Let’s talk about being positive, something that I try to be. A while ago someone asked me because of what I am who I am and what inspires me. This of course got my crazy head thinking and made me write this blogpost. Enjoy reading all of you lovely people!
Positivity. It is something so important, almost magical. No, it doesn’t help you go to Neverland of turn your online bought prom dress into a beautiful gown, but being positive or having lots of positivity makes your life much better. Let me tell you why.
A happier life is a healthier life. There is this happy hormone called endorphin, it is produced when for instance you laugh, hug, kiss or work out, the things that make you happy. The benefit of producing endorphin is that it reduces pain, endorphin is a natural painkiller. Isn’t life much better with less pain?
About 20% of the population is or has been depressed (In The Netherlands but also in the VS). This rate is huge! It shows us that life is hard and I get that, believe me when I say that I do. But it is important to learn how to deal with depressing of nerve-racking moments in life and not let the negativity control you. These are a few symbols to help you with this.
First up is the heart: The heart stands for your goals, ask yourself what you want to achieve in not a to long period of time. Think about a year max. 5 years. Next up is the owl: The owl is wise and surely not dumb. The owl sees everything, the good and the bad. The owl also decides if a (negative) thought is relative or not. Think about your feelings and see if they are relative or not, most depressing or nerv-racking thoughts and feeling are not relative at all.
Then we have the soft kitten: The kitten is all about being kind. Not only for others but also being kind to yourself. Pamper yourself! Go do something that You want to do. Lastly is the elephant: The elephant has a very tough skin and does not let things get to him, but he does carry it with him everywhere he goes. He does not let an emotion be the boss of him but he does carry everything around with him.
So when you are in a difficult situation, think of what your goal is, when your journey gets tough think about it all but you got to take care of yourself to not let it destroy you but to let it in and carry it around with you to make you even stronger. And when you succeed, much happiness will happen to you.
Also seek for the little happy things in life, like a cute picture of a kitten, candles, flowers, stars or music, many things in life can make you happy, you just have to find them.
