If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!
In case she didn't let me go ahead and remind you of it now as your Astrological Mama being the Sun Sign Cancer that I am...
As a healer I seem to come across a load of negativity and from talking to my colleagues I'm not the only one! When I consider it it's really not surprising. Bad attitudes go hand in hand with a lacking state of wellness and yet there are always exceptions to the rule.
It comes down to one of my favorite words in my practice: choice. Whether your circumstances reflect something positive or not you always have the choice to see the good in your situation no matter what. That's the wonderful thing about it.
Speaking with a dear friend of mine she brought this up:
We all have down moments & days. But if we focus on the bad, then that is all we will see. We have to pick something that is positive even if it is something trivial and focus on that, then our outlook changes.
I definitely agree with that 100%. For me the simple mindset shift is truly magickal. On one hand it's easy to argue that choosing to see the good doesn't do anything - and yet when you truly accept it it IS magickal because it empowers you to be happy at all times even if things around you are not ideal.
And as my dear friend says: You just have to look for the positive, it isn't that hard, there is so much that is wonderful out there!
And a final tip (I've heard this echoed around too): Smile even when you have nothing to smile about. It will brighten someone else's day and eventually everyone smiling back at you will make you really smile! (Come on now, how great is that?!)
In the comments below I'd love to hear your take on this! Do you find it easier to look at the less than bright side? Do you wish you were more positive?
