In Darkness, We Find Light: How to Stay Positive
We live in a world full of beauty, hope, and love, but it can also show us moments of chaos and hurt. When things are going our way, when the weather is beautiful and flowers start to bloom, it’s easy to stay positive and connected to God’s bountiful creation. It’s in times of darkness and challenge where it becomes a little more difficult to remain positive. At Blessed Attire, we’re always looking for ways to stay positive and live in gratitude—even when we are faced with obstacles. This week we want to share some ways to stay positive, even when it doesn’t feel easy!
It can be so tempting to dive into all of our daily activities as soon as we wake up in the morning. Spending time in the morning praising God through journaling or quiet time reading scripture or meaningful quotes can be a great positivity practice, even if it means waking up 10 minutes earlier. Starting the day on a positive note will eventually become a habit you won’t want to break.
What’s more positive than wearing a smile? Sometimes just smiling, even if we have to fake it at first, can remind us of all the beautiful things we have to smile about. Wearing something special such as a bracelet with an encouraging quote, or a t-shirt with a meaningful saying can spread positivity, especially to those around you!
In moments of desolation and challenge, we can have feelings of anxiety, worry, and doubt. In these moments, it’s important to remember that God is on our side. When we experience these feelings, it can be helpful to listen to music that reminds us of God’s presence in our lives. Carrying a reminder of God’s love for us throughout the day, such as your favorite quote or scripture can be a source of positivity when we need it the most.
Don’t Give Up!
Even when you feel like giving up, know that what you’re experiencing is only temporary! Connecting with your spiritual community can be a great way to feel supported throughout challenging times. Many churches and places of worship have small groups, events, and seminars that are open to the community. And most importantly, never forget that you are loved!
We’re always looking for daily doses of positivity and inspiration. Our products are great reminders of the joy in each day and help us stay positive, especially during challenging times. What helps you stay positive? We would love to hear from you!
