It would be easy to let disappointment and failure overcome you… to let them discourage you from whatever goals you may have set for yourself. Ironically, the hardest part would be to pick yourself up and find it within yourself to keep going and strive for greatness. I find it extremely difficult to stay positive when something negative happens. I have always been a bit of a pessimist and have always blamed myself for my failures and disappointments. However, I have reached a point where I am ready to say “no more.” No more blaming myself, no more long periods of time asking “what did I do wrong,” and no more focusing on all the negatives; never seeing the positives. Yes, it absolutely sucks to get hurt by life’s unpleasant surprises but instead of using those negatives as weights to keep you down, pick up those weights and strengthen yourself; use them to continue to build yourself up and mold your life into what you have always envisioned it to be.
This holiday season I have to say I am extremely blessed. I have my family with me, a roof over my head, I am employed, there is a beautiful tree in my living room and I have the means to be able to repay my family for all their love and support this year. Life is a gift, precious and not guaranteed and during such a beautiful holiday season like Christmas, I want nothing but positivity in my life, regardless of the negatives I might face. It won’t be easy but the key is to remember everything you have to be grateful for and everything you have yet to accomplish. I have so many goals and dreams and cannot let anything get in my way! So join me this holiday season in saying NO MORE! Is time to push forward and enjoy what life has to offer.
