James Allen said, “A sour face does not come by chance; it is made by sour thoughts.” Sour face? Sour thoughts?
Yes, sometimes it is very hard to see what is right in our lives when things are not really going well with us. Regardless of what is going on in our lives, we still have a lot to celebrate in our lives. Why can’t we do that? Why can’t we focus on what is running well in our lives? Why? Why?
We can’t see what is right in our lives because we are dwelling on what is wrong. We are dwelling on negative thoughts. We are dwelling on negative people’s opinions. And the more we dwell on bad things, the more we move away from what is good in our lives. Know this: “To see what is good in your life, you must focus and think about what is good.” Why is that? Because you can’t attract what is good into your life if you keep thinking about what is wrong about you. You can’t.
We all have things to worry about in our lives. Don’t let them steal your happiness away from you. No matter what you are going through in your life, there are lots of things that are working well for you. Focus on those things. Don’t allow negative people into your life. Celebrate your life. The more you celebrate, the more you will have to celebrate.
You can see what is right in your life if you stop complaining about what you don’t have. Many of us do that. But Don’t do it. It will steal your life away. It will steal your health away. It will steal your happiness away. Why? Because the more you complain, the more will have more to complain about. To cure this disease, you must focus on what you have, not on what you don’t have. If you have the courage to do that, you will have more to celebrate.
