Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Published on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 in , ,

In the midst of all the positive energy we try to put out, sometimes negativity decides to knock at our door in one last attempt to “get us down.” With that being said, I think we can all agree that negativity can take on so many different forms whether it’s a stressful situation, an unexpected naysayer, or a tried and true critic. And recognizing the source of these feelings is often times the easy part, but dealing with it in a healthy way can be a whole other issue.

Realize the only way that negativity can possibly get the upper hand is if you LET it devalue you. If you let complaints and less-than-ideal situations take over and fill you with worry, then your “battle” with negativity is far from won. Simply ask yourself if you’re worth more than being consumed by this situation, which after all is only a trivial stepping stone at its best. If the answer is yes, then don't sweat the small stuff, honey!

On a personal note, I’ve been dealing with some troubling issues of my own, but it was definitely an opportunity to grow. Instead of “fighting fire with fire,” and sending out negative vibes just because a few were being aimed at me, I chose to grow up a bit.

If the purpose of stress, complaints, and criticism, is to make me worry about what I should be doing or how I should act, then realizing that I’m exactly WHERE I need to be DOING exactly what I need to be doing is more than enough for me.

The best advice I’ve ever gotten reassured me that worrying over someone else’s thoughts and less-than-positive situations won’t solve anything. Worries can’t add a single moment to my life, but they sure can take a lot of them away. Instead, I choose to appreciate all of the things I experience in life—good or bad—because it will all work together for my benefit!

So in the future…I hope my DOLLS and Gents will take more time to appreciate life than to worry about the issues in it!
