Guest Post Wednesday: They say it’s half empty, but I can see it half full

Dear Optimists,

Negative thoughts, uh-oh!

I always wonder how people allow negative thoughts eclipsing their own self. I mean ain’t there better things to do than feeling dejected; better as in replacing the bad thought with something that instills positivity within us. Rather than focusing on bad, seeing a positive side would definitely be instrumental in making one upbeat. Guess, this is one of the reasons, why I always see the half glass full 🙂

Positive thinking has innumerable benefits on the physical well-being. In my case the daily affirmations have beautifully played the game. Two years back, I lost my loved one in a terrible car accident. I couldn’t stop myself going into the dungeons of despondency, I tried by all means to replace the thoughts and in the process I came across a mesmerizing piece very well written by Louise L Hay and it is from here that I started saying my daily affirmations:

This sweet letter (pun intended) has actually worked in transforming my life. It gave a healthy perspective in life and of course, a competitive edge in standing tall irrespective of any filed in life. I no longer feel any sullenness, in fact, they say its half empty, but I can see it half full 🙂

Sharing happiness

Dear Optimists,

There are a lot of ways to stay positive. But it’s not all about you. It’s also about the people surrounding you, people that look at you weird when you smile at them, the people that need happiness in their life.

I have post-its everywhere. They hang on my computer, the wall, in my books (for me to find in the future), simply everywhere. Not empty post-its, obviously, but post-its with optimistic sentences written on them, inspirational quotes and cute little drawings that make me smile.

So how about sharing this? Write down your favourite quote or a compliment and hang them on the window of a train (not a passing train, that may be a bit too dangerous!), random places in stores or hide them in library books for others to find.

Make someone else’s day, not just your own. Share your happiness!


PS. You are beautiful.
[edit] PPS. I was reminded of this wonderful operation called Operation Beautiful that work on transforming the way you see yourself one post-it note at a time. Share your post-its with them and us on our Facebook page! We’d love to see you change the world – one post-it at a time 🙂
