But my circumstances are too depressing, I can't be positive...
You do everything with no end in sight: work, kids, bills, housework, car, pets...you don't have time to take care of yourself, much less be positive about it.
But as everyone knows, everything will hit a breaking point. Even you.
I know, I've been there. Circling the drain with everything I have to do, everything falling on my shoulders, no end in sight.
“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.” –Mahatma Gandhi
What I've learned over the years is when I can't change my circumstances, I can change my thoughts. And when I change my thoughts, my actions and my demeanor change. And when that happens, I become a happier, more positive mom, daughter, friend, co-worker.
