How Long Can I Stay Positive?
Keep waking up and lying down. Keep waking up and lying down. I used to hear an elder say this every Sunday. Up until not long ago I never understood what that meant. Until I kept waking up and lying down, until I reached a certain age of understanding. This understanding gave me a clearer vision on that saying. It wasn’t just getting older that gave it meaning but it was getting wiser about life. Living life knowing that if I continue to keep sleeping and rising then I will face adversity, I will face triumph, victory, sadness, and back again. But, only one thing has kept me steady going and they are in the words of Solomon from, “Proverbs 17:22 A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Keeping those bones watered with positive thoughts and actions helps me to continue to keep waking up and lying down.
Now, how long I stay positive is up to me. I control my day; I direct my thoughts. Knowing how to guide my life with positive actions and expecting results of greatness from these positive actions, leads me to be more involved in how I treat myself. Grasping the ideas that I want to live a fulfilled life, I want to live my best life and spreading results that will affect my surroundings keeps me maintained on the goal or goals at hand. And with all of this in mind I believe that I can have all and do all even if I am trying something and it didn’t work out. I’m not going to be upset about it and even if I do get upset, I’m not going to dwell in being upset. I will move on seeking my destiny in this positive atmosphere that I have created my life to evolve around.
The best is yet to come for me and anyone else that sets their eyes on the prize with a “Positive” set of actionable steps. Remembering positive leads the day positive sets the way.
