Completely Change Your Mindset: The Secrets To Transform Your Life Now!

Completely Change Your Mindset: The Secrets To Transform Your Life Now!

If you want to change your life then the first thing you need to do is completely change your mindset. When I was younger I always thought that I should expect the worst from every situation. That way if anything ever DID happen then my heart and mind would have already been ready for the bad news.

I was living an extremely pessimistic life and rarely ever smiled. It also started to show on my face. Are you somewhat like that? Do you tend to have a negative outlook on life? Does it always seem like you are never in a good state of mind? In this post I will give you my methods for how to completely change your mindset and create the kind of life you’re always meant to have.

“To change your life, you have to change yourself. To change yourself you have to change your mindset.”

Completely Change Your Mindset

Smile

When was the last time you smiled and it wasn’t for a photograph? Did you know that the more you smile, the more the brain tells the body that you are in fact happier?

Smiling can change your outlook on life. It can help you see that, no matter how crazy life is, there is still beauty to be found.

Can you imagine how different your day would be if you could smile through all the circumstances in which you normally frown or pout? When you smile, you tell the world that regardless of what is going on, you will get through it and there will be a happy ending in there.

 

Always Be Yourself

When I was younger, I discovered that I was one way when I was at school and a completely different person when I was home or around my friends. And you what? It was exhausting.

Plus I was constantly unhappy. It is so hard trying to keep up with all the different masks that we tend to wear in life. All these masks make it harder for people to get to know us. This in turn makes it harder for us to form bonds and thus we end up negative, resentful and lonely adults.

Luckily, we don’t have to do this. Be yourself and I mean, be the same you ALL the time. If you are loud and funny, embrace it and don’t worry about what people will think.

If you are a quiet church mouse like myself, that’s okay. Introverts have a place in this world too. Once you embrace the real you, your whole life becomes a bit easier and things start looking up.

 

Learn To Give

To completely change your whole mindset, you need to learn to give instead of always receiving. Today’s society teaches us that we need to take and take and take as much as we can before it’s too late.

We also learn that those who give back are just doing it to get recognition. What if that weren’t rue? Is it so hard to believe that giving back can actually benefit you greatly as a human being?

When you learn to give, the focus is taken off of you and put on someone else. You learn how to empathize with others and how to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, and trust me, many of us need to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.

This helps us to understand how important everyone is. It also helps us to realize that we are not better than anyone else and we are a lot more alike than we’d like to believe.

 

Stop Worrying

I recently wrote a post about the daily habits of a worry-free person and how it really changes your entire life once you stop worrying. If you want to take a look at it, I have included the link here.

Worry is robbing and has robbed so many of us of our time, our energy and our lives. Worrying, in a nutshell, ensures that you only focus on the problem and thus you are never really able to find a solution.

When you stop worrying, you become more action-minded. This means that you start seeing the solution and stop focusing on what’s going wrong. Once you start doing this, you start seeing the positives and everything stops looking so bleak and patches of silver lining start peaking through.

 

Look For The Bright Side

This goes hand in hand with my previous point. Stop for a moment and think. What if, I know I sound a bit out there, but what if everyone only focused on the positives in life?

What would happen if, during the bad times in our lives, we consistently believed we’d be okay and worked hard to make that happen?

Don’t you think that many of the arguments and fighting would decrease?

Is it crazy to imagine a society where leaders hoped for a brighter future and worked together to make it come true instead of fighting over money and power? I hope not.

I pray that one day this truly comes to pass. I dream of a world where everyone realizes that looking at the bright side of things, and working together will make the world a better place.

Instead of obsessing over the negatives, like how seemingly different we are, focus on the positives and the fact that we are all human beings at the core of it all.

 

Love Yourself Fiercely

Before you even say, I know. I say this A LOT and you what? What if I do? Too many people in this world go through all of it without ever really knowing what love is. Do you know why? Because they were never taught what love is and they don’t love themselves.

Every day we see on the internet or in magazines these perfect-looking models and athletes. We then proceed to compare every single fault we can find on our bodies to their perfectly plastic or photo-shopped appearance.

We need to stop this. Did you know that you were beautifully and uniquely created? Do you understand how much thought was put into perfectly shaping your ears, your neck and even the dark spot on the back of your elbows?

I had to check myself today because I saw these models with big boobs and looked at mine as though they were non-existent. I went as far as to look at the prices for plastic surgery to see if I could improve them.

As I was writing this post, however, God reminded me that He doesn’t make mistakes in His creations so why do I feel like I have the authority to question the size of my boobs?

Stop trying to find perfection and look inside. The perfect version of yourself is staring at you right now in the mirror.

 

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

As human beings, we really enjoy playing it safe. We like knowing what is going to happen, how it will happen and when it will happen. For many of us, we would prefer to be prepared instead of having something just jump out at us.

This is why so many of us hate surprises That’s fine for the most part. I believe though, that it takes a step outside our comfort zone to really start to discover yourself.

You need to take risks. Head into the unknown and jump into that ocean so you can get your feet wet. A lot of personal growth happens once we start doing things that scare us and trying new things. After all, you never know what you’re made of until you put yourself to the test.

 

Learn To Forgive

Does it take you like ten years to give up a grudge? When someone hurts you, does your heart break a little bit every single time you see them? After it’s all said and done, do you know how to forgive?

Or do you just let that little incident keep boiling inside until you’re ready to let it go? (Probably after the person in question dies).

My ex did horrible things to me and I know I endured much more than I should have. For a long time, I thought about him and what had happened, and all that time it just kept making me angrier.

I lost one year of my life thinking about that man. A year where I could have been working on myself and getting better instead of having sleepless nights. When you learn to forgive, you free yourself of all the pain and you let it go.

You’re not able to move on with your life and forge the path you were meant to with all that weight and baggage holding you back. Is there someone you need to forgive today?

 

Take Care Of Yourself

You have so many dreams, and you work really hard to fulfil them. That’s great and I understand that. At the end of the day, however, do not to lose yourself in everything.

When you lose the essence of who you are, your dreams become chores and the journey becomes even more difficult. This causes us to develop a negative mindset and forget why it is we started the journey in the first place.

Here are a few things you can do in order to take care of yourself:

  • Go to the spa or have a spa day at home
  • Kick back, put your feet up and relax for a day
  • Stay hydrated
  • Treat yourself once a month
  • Get a good night’s sleep every night
  • Don’t overwork yourself

When you take care of yourself, you’ll realize you start smiling more. You start enjoying the work and the goal becomes that much more clear.

 

Embrace Change

Life is all about change. Every second, every minute, the world around is changing. Believe it or not, you are also changing. Many of us are afraid of change because we like things to work a certain way.

If, for ten years, you wake up to a hot breakfast on the table at the same time and in the same place, then tomorrow when you wake up, you would expect it to there waiting on you.

What would you do if you woke up and the breakfast wasn’t there? Would you start panicking or would you just go with the flow?

When you learn to go with the flow, life becomes easier to handle as you no longer are surprised by the situations that occur. It teaches you to be resourceful and creative when a new condition arises.

You’re no longer frazzled when something new is put before you. In fact, you start enjoying the idea that what lies ahead could be great or scary, or both.

 

Create The Life You Want

I could go on and on about all the many different things you can do in order to completely change your mindset but I think I’ll stop here for now. What I will add though is that the first step in the process begins with you recognizing that something is wrong and you need to fix it.

Once you have that part down, you can refer back to this post, as well as make a list of other ways you can think of to help you completely change your mindset. If you happen to think of any more I’d love to hear about them.

    I believe it’s easy to change your mindset after you work at it. With everything a little hard work will pay off. Routine will make it second nature to have a more positive outlook.

    • January 15, 2018 / 8:35 PM

      That is very true. If you practice thinking in a particular way then it will naturally become a part of you.

  4. January 15, 2018 / 11:50 AM

    I really love your post. “Be yourself” is such a simple words to say but yet it is the most different thing to achieve. I must remind myself to will stay positive and be productive! Thanks.

    You raise some very good points here and offer some very sound advice. The hardest part is really the first step as you said, acknowledging that something is wrong. Thanks for breaking this down so eloquently.

    • January 15, 2018 / 8:29 PM

      Thank you so much for reading. I think once you realize that something is definitely wrong, you can only go up from there.

  8. January 15, 2018 / 11:12 PM

    These are great suggestions and I will be the first to admit how we view things can change our mindset. I was feeling cold and frumpy this morning but I had a comment on one of my blog posts that turned that around. She gave some inspiring advice. I’m going to use your tips.

    • January 16, 2018 / 10:30 AM

      Congrats on that wonderful comment. See? One splash of positivity can really take your day and have it do a 360. Have a great week!

  9. January 16, 2018 / 1:19 AM

    I have a tendency to look at things from a negative outlook. I think it’s because it seems bad things always happen to us. I really like the points you made!

    • January 16, 2018 / 10:29 AM

      I used to be just like that but I found I never really had joy because of it. Trust me, changing your outlook can really heplp you.

  10. January 16, 2018 / 1:43 AM

    These are some great points. We often forget to do these things with so much happening around us and it’s important to remember how one positive thought or action can completely turn your day around.

    • January 16, 2018 / 10:29 AM

      Thank you. Yes a dose of positivity can really turn your day around.

  11. January 16, 2018 / 6:20 AM

    These are tips and a very useful article! So many of these remind me of the law of attraction. We create what we focus on and focusing on happiness will create more happiness in ourselves.

    • January 16, 2018 / 10:25 AM

      That is a fantastic way to put it. If you want positivity then you have to exude positivity.

  12. January 16, 2018 / 6:30 AM

    This is such a fabulous post and I so agree with it! I always stay true to who I am, and I tell the kids to do the same. I also occasionally step out of my comfort zone and am always glad I did in the end.

    • January 16, 2018 / 10:25 AM

      That is great. i am so happy to hear that embracing who you are has helped you in your life. Great!

  13. January 16, 2018 / 8:07 AM

    I do believe in changing the mind. Changing the mind can the life.

  14. January 16, 2018 / 8:12 AM

    These are some awesome ways to help to try and change your mindset, I have to admit I am trying to think more positively and trying to take those steps to better my life.

    • January 16, 2018 / 9:31 AM

      That is great! Once you work on your mind, the rest will fall into place. Remember that you control the outcome of situations by how you think and react to them.

      • January 17, 2018 / 4:55 AM

        Thank you – I hope I can manage it in the long term I have a lot to work on but I know it is possible.

        • January 17, 2018 / 4:27 PM

          It is definitely possible if you take it one step at a time.

  15. January 16, 2018 / 8:23 AM

    Loving yourself is so super important. I also love the one about just being yourself always. There’s no need to be anyone different than who you are.

    • January 16, 2018 / 9:29 AM

      Exactly because being you is wonderful enough 🙂

  16. January 16, 2018 / 11:00 AM

    Great read! There are so many great ways to change your mindset. Will defiantly save this post for when I have one fo my worrying days.

    • January 17, 2018 / 8:46 PM

      Thank you. I hope it brightens your day when you need it.

  17. January 16, 2018 / 11:59 AM

    Worrying is hard for me. I try so hard not to, but I find it slowly entering in.

    • January 17, 2018 / 5:07 PM

      I think that once you start taking greater control of your mind, worrying slowly becomes less a part of you.

  18. January 16, 2018 / 12:52 PM

    Great tips! Its not always easy making those changes, but happiness is worth it.

  19. January 16, 2018 / 1:16 PM

    Great tips. Smiling can definitely change your mindset! I always try to look at the positives before I let myself get carried away with the negatives of a situation. I think embracing change instead of being afraid of it is also essential!

    Being positive does heal a lot. It changes you from inside. I loved reading this post.

  22. January 16, 2018 / 6:30 PM

    What an inspiring post. I totally agree that productivity depends on your perspective of seeing things.

  23. January 16, 2018 / 8:56 PM

    100% need to follow the stepping outside of your comfort zone. I am WAY too careful and cautious!

    • January 17, 2018 / 5:04 PM

      Great. Go on and step outside and see all the wonderful things that await you.

  24. January 16, 2018 / 10:23 PM

    I like the part about self love, giving and change. We really do need to embrace change. One of the way i keep positive is by remembering the times i thought i could never “pull through” but came out stronger! It helps a lot. Thanks for sharing. This is a great post!

    • January 17, 2018 / 8:42 PM

      That is a great memory. We always believe we can never make it through difficult situations but we are so much stronger than we believe. We just need to have the right mindset.

  25. January 17, 2018 / 12:30 AM

    I really enjoyed this article. I struggle with getting out of my comfort zone. Thanks for sharing this.

  26. January 17, 2018 / 12:34 AM

    I totally agree with learning to forgive… That is the best thing to be taught to children… This is a great read thanks for posting 😀

  27. January 17, 2018 / 1:51 AM

    These are excellent tips! I think having a good mindset is important.

    I love your content, I post similar content. These ideas are fantastic, whether we occasionally or often struggle with negative thinking, all these tips are very useful!

    • January 17, 2018 / 8:40 PM

      Thank you so much. It’s great that you do inspirational posts. 😊

  29. January 17, 2018 / 2:38 AM

    I am such a worrier, Infact it’s spiralled into terrible anxiety over the years, so I found this really motivating. Thank you for sharing.

    • January 17, 2018 / 4:47 PM

      Wow. I wish you so much peace on your journey and hope that soon you will not be suffering from anxiety anymore. Prayers with you.

  30. January 17, 2018 / 2:57 AM

    I agree with all the points you listed. I think as far as I am concerned, I need to stop worrying! I am not an anxious person but it just get worried with little things ahah

    • January 17, 2018 / 4:35 PM

      Yes worrying can really take a lot from you. I find that trying to just handle things as they happen instead of dwelling on them really helps with worry.

  31. January 17, 2018 / 3:27 AM

    I love this, really! I used to do most of the things you’ve mentioned, but then a lot changed. And now it’s like I’m keeping myself together with so many memes & sarcasm. It works, yes, but surely not the right way to go.
    Thanks for this reminder!

    • January 17, 2018 / 4:33 PM

      I know that a lot of what you mentioned helps in the short term but in order to be happy long term, embracing who you are and making the necessary changes will go a long way.

  32. January 17, 2018 / 3:45 AM

    There is some really good advice for everyone here, from all walks of life, whatever their situation. I like how honest and open you’ve been. Thinking more positively is definitely something I struggle with, but I’m going to try harder in 2018! x

    • January 17, 2018 / 4:31 PM

      I decided when I started blogging that I would try to be open in order to connect with my readers. Thank you so much for reading and have a great year!

  33. Siti Aana
    January 17, 2018 / 4:40 AM

    These are some amazing points. I feel like I should print out the headings of this post and put them on my desk to remind myself about these, every day!

    • January 17, 2018 / 4:28 PM

      I think that would be a great idea. I have a similar system with sticky notes

  34. January 17, 2018 / 6:23 AM

    Great Post, I couldn’t agree more about the importance of sleep! Sleep is the key to everything. All the best

    • January 17, 2018 / 4:25 PM

      Oh wow. Thank you. I truly appreciate your support!

  36. January 17, 2018 / 6:56 AM

    This is such an inspiring post! A great reminder that mindset is plays such an important part of how it could affect how we leads a life. Thanks for this good read!

  37. January 17, 2018 / 7:04 AM

    I really enjoyed reading this post. I’m a lot like you: I expect and prepare for the worst, in efforts to prevent the “blowback” as well as to be able to enjoy when it’s not as bad as I thought. I’m working on that in 2018, as well as resolving to step out of my comfort zone!

    • January 17, 2018 / 12:28 PM

      That’s great. It took me a while to stop thinking like that and it really helped improve my outlook on life. I hope it helps you as well this year.

  38. January 17, 2018 / 7:47 AM

    Love this post as it is very inspirational! It’s very hard to change how you feel and I guess it’s important to keep in mind that it is a slow process. But every day you feel better is a good day and will lead to more 🙂

    • January 17, 2018 / 2:25 PM

      That is very true. It is a daily exercise in controlling your mind and some days but I keep going as well!

  39. January 17, 2018 / 8:06 AM

    So many people can be stubborn and that halts progress. We need to let go of some of our old ways.

  40. January 17, 2018 / 8:27 AM

    All the points are true! Love yourself fiercely and stop worrying are two things I have much difficulty to deal with. But I will keep trying! 🙂

    • January 17, 2018 / 2:24 PM

      Great! I know that if you keep trying, things will get better and better for you 🙂

    I love this post! I think loving yourself and truly believing you deserve the things you want is so crucial to getting them. Thanks for the inspiration!! 🙂

    • January 17, 2018 / 9:37 AM

      You are so welcome. How we see ourselves is such a powerful driver in our lives and I feel not many really see that.

  44. January 17, 2018 / 9:28 AM

    Dee, as with other posts of yours i have read, great tips that we can easily apply…

    • January 17, 2018 / 9:29 AM

      Thank you so much! I hope these tips help you out daily!

  45. January 17, 2018 / 9:59 AM

    I related to so many parts of this post! I too felt that I was one way in school and another way at home. It wasn’t that I was being fake…I just felt like I always had to be my best self and “on” and then I was totally exhausted by the time I got home. I think being yourself and opening up to others is so important. I also love your simple tip of smiling. There have been times that I have smiled for a picture and thought to myself, “was I even smiling before I HAD to for this picture?” Smiling is so contagious and important to bring positive vibes. Thanks for this great post . So many awesome reminders!!

    • January 17, 2018 / 11:28 AM

      Thank you so much for being brave enough to share your experiences. I am happy that you were able to recognize that something was wrong and that it was slowly affecting how you felt about yourself. Good for that and keep being true to yourself no matter what.

  46. January 17, 2018 / 11:37 AM

    This is a very informative and inspirational post. Changing your mindset and getting out of that negative way of looking at life can be so life-changing. It does take a lot of work though!

  47. January 17, 2018 / 12:12 PM

    I agree that changing your thinking can change your life. These are good ideas.

  48. January 17, 2018 / 1:13 PM

    Very inspirational article! Great to hear that you’ve put aside the unpleasant incidents to move forward. Those burdens will only weigh you down, and you don’t stand to gain anything having them constantly at the back of your head 🙂

    • January 17, 2018 / 8:39 PM

      Thank you. It was hard and it took a while but I’m glad I did too😊 It has really changed my life.

  49. January 17, 2018 / 2:20 PM

    • January 17, 2018 / 8:32 PM

      Yes even though sometimes it’s hard, we really need to embrace change.

    Thanks for these great tips! It was a pleasure for me to read this article!

  52. January 17, 2018 / 7:41 PM

    I struggle with anxiety and my therapist says the same thing. You must change your mindset and allow yourself to be free of negative thoughts to grow.

    • January 17, 2018 / 8:30 PM

      I struggled with anxiety a few years ago and it really helped once I changed my mindset about the things that were upsetting me.

  53. January 17, 2018 / 11:06 PM

    It’s amazing to think of how much you learn from others by just helping them. I’ve always believed that by helping others you’re also helping yourself. And yes, stepping out of your comfort zone can open doors for you.

    • January 19, 2018 / 8:01 AM

      It truly is amazing. I really believe helping others brings about much-needed change in this world.

    These are great tips! My goal this year is to get out of the comfort zone and risk more. I mean, we only live once, I don’t want to feel regretful because I didn’t try.

    • January 19, 2018 / 7:50 AM

      I had the same thought. I don’t want to live my life full of regret because of all the things I never did.

    I am a worrier by nature, but it definitely increased when I became a mother. But I’m working towards changing that. My husband looks at things and says I’ll stress when I know there’s something to stress about. Wish I could be that calm.

      Don’t worry. If you practice having control over your thoughts it’ll come too

  56. January 18, 2018 / 2:52 AM

    I really enjoyed this blog post. I have been on the try to stop worrying journey and it really has made a huge difference. Getting rid of the worry has mage me such a happier person.

      That’s great. I hope that the more practice worrying less, the better your life becomes.

  57. January 18, 2018 / 3:04 AM

    Yes to so many of the points you make, you do need to like yourself in order to change your mindset. Smiling is also important, it affects how you project yourself.

    • January 19, 2018 / 6:55 AM

      Yes I believe that changing your mindset does start with loving yourself and discovering who you are as a person.

  58. January 18, 2018 / 6:20 AM

    I love the quote: “As long as you are being positive, you are being productive.” I have started reading “You are a badass” to help change my perspective in life. Positive thoughts are always a great start to changing life and mindset.

    • January 19, 2018 / 6:53 AM

      Thank you. I think you can be a badass but being a positive badass is even better.

  59. January 18, 2018 / 9:18 AM

    Life is so much easier when we let go and just enjoy everything around us. I always try to stay positive and look at the bright side but sometimes we have worse moments. That’s when we really need to read such reminders as yours. Thank you.

    • January 19, 2018 / 6:48 AM

      You are so welcome. I really like what you said about when we are in our dark places we need reminders.

  60. January 18, 2018 / 9:50 AM

    I’ve tried to be more positive as I’ve gotten older. I used to be called a “Negative Nancy” growing up.

    • January 19, 2018 / 6:47 AM

      Oohhh I’ve definitely heard that. I’m glad you no longer think like that.

    Totally agree with this article. It is always about being positive and thinking things willl work out. Once you become negative that bad vibe spreads and is not healthy in any environment.

    • January 19, 2018 / 6:44 AM

      Yes it does and really drains all the happiness from you in the process.

  62. I love the quote from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them. When Newt is talking about worrying. And he says that when you worry you get hurt twice. So why worry? Only focus on what you can do and not on the things out of your control. It never helps when you worry over things you cannot do anything about.

    • January 19, 2018 / 6:42 AM

      That is so true. I believe that focusing on what you can do prevents you from worrying about what you can’t.

  63. January 18, 2018 / 7:09 PM

    This quote is really true for me: “As long as you are being positive, you are being productive.” I always change my mindset every now and then. If it does not work, try another one. It might work!

  64. January 19, 2018 / 1:29 AM

    You get what you give to the universe..being positive is the key!

  65. January 19, 2018 / 2:47 AM

    Ohh, I couldn’t agree more on this post. I started to live being positive and as far as I remember, starting out with positivity brings me good memories.

  66. January 19, 2018 / 9:11 AM

    Enjoyed your post. I really stopped to think how I forget how important it is to remember things that should be done. It is also so important to take care of yourself.

  67. January 19, 2018 / 10:15 AM

    About 2 years ago, I changed my attitude about life. I began to be more positive, think positively and be more loving. It has made a big difference in my quality of life.

    • January 19, 2018 / 8:16 PM

      That is great. Congratulations on becoming the person you were meant to become. Keep it up.

  68. January 19, 2018 / 11:01 AM

    I definitely have the mindset like you mentioned in the beginning, I’ve learned that its a personality trait (neuroticism)! So even when I’m reading your post about how to be positive I’m thinking to my self I can’t smile because then I’m just being fake. Clearly I need to work a little harder to change my mindset. All have to save this post for later when I can process more ways of changing.

    • January 19, 2018 / 8:15 PM

      We truly are alike. It took me a very long time to change how I thought and some days I still struggle but when that happens I remind myself of the kind of person I want to be and it works.

  69. January 19, 2018 / 2:37 PM

    Thank you for this wonderful post! I’m an introvert myself too and I’ve started embracing this. And it’s amazingly beautiful. 🙂 I can relate to almost every single word in here. I’ve also started coming out of my comfort zone by blogging (I love writing, but this is not the only reason for doing it, I believe sharing is caring and I don’t want to keep the story just for myself). For an introvert, blogging was a big step for me to get myself out of my comfort zone. 🙂 Can’t wait to read more of your posts.

    • January 19, 2018 / 8:12 PM

      Thank you so much. I read one of your posts as well and am excited to see more from you. 😊😊

  70. January 19, 2018 / 8:43 PM

    Well, embracing the change is the hardest thing to do. You made the point with that one!

    • January 22, 2018 / 12:27 PM

      Thank you so much! You can do it though. I believe in you!

    Great post. I mostly do all in the list. I can’t stop worrying, and sometimes, having a hard time to step out of my comfort zone. I think easy said than done. 😐

    • January 29, 2018 / 8:43 AM

      I think that once you recognize the power of the mind, many things that seemed impossible start looking a lot more doable

    Great tips I agree smiling can help improve your mindset. I believe once we take control of our thoughts and realize the power of our mind.

    • February 9, 2018 / 5:25 PM

      Yes our mind definitely controls alot of what we do

  73. March 1, 2018 / 10:09 PM

    I’ve really been trying to embrace myself and all of my idiosyncrasies as well, especially when meeting new people!

    • March 2, 2018 / 10:10 AM

      Keep at it. Remember that you are truly beautiful!

  74. March 11, 2018 / 6:14 AM

    Such a motivational post! I definitely feel the two I’ve worked the most on in the last year are:

    1) Trying not to worry about the things I can’t control.
    2) Giving back more. It really does help boost my happiness to make others happy first.

    I love all of your other thoughts and tips!

    • March 15, 2018 / 6:52 PM

      Thank you. I love number two. There is such a sense of happiness when you give back

  75. March 11, 2018 / 7:31 AM

    Wow your post was amazing I really resonated with a lot of it and it helped. Thank you.

  76. March 11, 2018 / 9:04 AM

    I am a glass half full type of person but I do understand that some people have a personality or mental disorder and may need CBT to actually help them to have a better outlook on life, Great pointers though, thanks and all the best with your blog.

  77. March 12, 2018 / 4:24 AM

    positivity really goes a long way. this was a great reminder.

  78. March 13, 2018 / 5:39 PM

    Well, Dee, you got me there, I hate to admit it but I felt like you were talking to me, Reading blog articles Like this is exactly what I needed right now.

    • March 13, 2018 / 7:59 PM

      Aww I am happy to hear that. Just work on thinking positively and you’ll be okay

  79. March 14, 2018 / 10:33 AM

    All spot on. said than done, without a doubt, but once you implement even half of these things, life just seems to be so much better.
