Something magical happens when you choose to see the good in your life, and the world around you.
There is always something to be grateful for.
Choosing to see the good, and make the best of things, has helped me through a particularly tough year with Chance being off. This year has not gone the way I had planned, much like my life in general! But it hasn’t broken me. I used to have a very negative outlook on life. I would become depressed, and anxious, when faced with struggles. I had such a negative mindset that I could not see how truly blessed I am.
Horses are my life. I have not been able to ride mine for six months! Of course it has been so difficult for me. I saw everything that I have been working for all these years just slip away. Or at least that is how it seemed. In reality, it was just put on pause. I chose to stay positive through Chance’s health struggles. Luckily, it looks as though he will be able to work again. However, back in February, it looked as though he wouldn’t. Instead of sinking into a depression, I chose to see the good in my life. I found a way to still ride some, and I have been working a lot to save up so that I can get a horse before the farm is ready if I want to. Choosing to stay positive allowed me to see how to solve my problem. It also made life a hell of a lot more enjoyable these past six months!
I think that is really the reason to stay positive. Good vibes keep life fun, even though bad things are happening. There is always a reason to smile. There is always something to be grateful for, the same as there is always something to be miserable about!
