Learn to find the gift, read the previous article:
We already know what it is. During the happier moments of our lives, we can further honor this positive energy by expressing our deepest gratitude and joy.
Rather than just feeling glad about our good fortune, we can purposely focus our thoughts on massive amounts of joy and gratitude, and consciously immerse ourselves in happiness.
We can shout our thanks to the heavens and affirm that we welcome even more blessings in our lives.
Focus on the positive side
Choosing to focus on the positive side doesn’t mean living our lives in denial. It doesn’t mean refusing to acknowledge the negative or mundane aspects of our lives.
It means we see them, we accept them, and then we look beyond them rather than getting mired in negative thoughts and letting them affect the rest of our day.
Our thoughts are higher than our struggles
Looking for the gift means choosing to lift our thoughts higher than our struggles. It removes us from our victim status and empowers us. No matter what happens in our lives, we have the ability to choose our attitude and our mindset.
We can choose to focus on happiness, joy, love and gratitude, or we can stay mired in unhappiness and struggle.
Focusing on the gifts and blessings in our lives won’t make all of our problems vanish overnight, or at all. But it reduces their importance and helps them to fade into the background a bit.
We create in our lives what we focus on the most. By choosing to focus on the positive, we attract more positive energy into our lives.
