Waiting, Hoping, and Finding Positivity

Before Christmas, I dropped off a bunch of things at Goodwill and (of course) I had to look around. I found a book called “A Daybook of Positive Thinking”. Synchronicity! It has been so hard to be positive over the last years. Some of us elder hippies read many of the Blue Mountain Arts (Boulder, Colorado) poems and books. Immediately after 9/11, author Susan Polis Schutz and others in the Blue Mountain Arts organization provided a free book One World, One Heart to everyone. Here’s your New Years’ gift - this book: oneworld.indd (squarespace.com) Feel free to pass it on.

“Life isn’t always perfect, and it doesn’t always go the way you wish it would. But when you take responsibility for your mental outlook and choose your thoughts wisely, you can make your life everything you want it to be and more.”

It’s heart rending that so many people are losing their health and lives around the world from COVID, poverty, and many horrible things. Many of us are blessed to be doing pretty much doing the same things we always have, except for extra masks. And we wait. We wait delusional to go back to where we were. I hope that we are getting closer to a better future. And we wait. In the meantime, I’d like to share some daily affirmations from Blue Mountain Arts while we continue to wait and hope.

 


 

Choose your thoughts wisely

Accept and appreciate that you’re the one most responsible for making your dreams come true. Be your own best friend. If you don’t choose your thoughts, you’ll have to take what you get. Create a positive picture that will draw what you want. Your intuition is powerful – use it. Don’t just let your life live you, live consciously.

– Donna Fargo

 


 

Appreciate your own greatness

Be reminded of how many people look up to and admire you. Your presence adds something special and invaluable to the world. You may not understand just how much your life means to those around you – how their days are brighter because you are here. Your life is a gift that is treasured

Let Go of the Past

“We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays” – Persius

Don’t let old mistakes hold you down: learn from them, forgive yourself or others, and more on. Don’t be discouraged by adversity. Instead meet it as a challenge. Be empowered by your courage. No amount of straining, crying or agonizing can remake one single day of the year that is past.

When It’s Hard to be Positive

Hope is not the closing of your eyes to the difficulty, the risk, or the failure. It is a trust that if I fail now, I shall not fail forever and if I am hurt, I shall be healed. It is a trust that life is good, love is powerful and the future is full of promise.

Every day, find something to be positive about 

Be full of gratitude for friends and family, for the goodness your find in others, for your health and all you’re capable of. 

Be full of acceptance of yourself and others without conditions or judging, knowing that changes make life interesting.

Appreciate the gifts of fun, laughter and contentment knowing that you can always control your ability to look on the bright side.
