Trying to stay positive

I’m going to do something I normally don’t do. Normally when things aren’t going well… I stop posting on social media and don’t talk about it online. It’s generally not something I talk about on social media because I really don’t want the sympathy for it and the people close to me know what’s going on. But I’m having a really rough week. There is a lot of family stuff going on that I’m trying to wrap my head around. It’s been tough.

Don’t worry though, I’m okay. I’m hanging in there… I’ve found that when I go through these periods in my life… where there is a death in the family or when there is just bad/sad news, I just try to focus on the positive in my life. It helps me cope and helps me remain thankful.

While in New York I found this book called The 5 minute Journal and I bought it as a gift for myself.

Basically the point of the journal is that every day you write about the positive things in your life. IMG_0613

I have many things to be thankful for and I really just want a daily reminder of that.

Anyways… today when I opened the book to start writing, I just so happened to open it on this page… and this quote was exactly what I needed for today.
