In very simple terms.... one liners... What Do You Do To Stay Positive?


Give us all examples of how you stay positive when the going gets tough or when you are surrounded by negativity... any suggestions would be great!

You know, that is a tough question because I think one of the good things about my personality is that I am able to tap on the positive and on hope (and I can be stubborn once I've decided on something.)

I remember going through a horrible half year at school that was followed by a less horrible year then having to transfer to a new school again in the space of that year and a half. After that I went to high school... and I woke up one day telling myself that it would be stupid to not bloom and have fun in high school, and that my goal was to have 3 good years. Then I did that.

I have to think what the one liner would be!

My current mantra (it changes with the situations):

It's tough but I'm learning something new in order to create and make change in my life.

"Warrior"...
There was a song called I am a Warrior, can't think of the artist off-hand right now but it will come to me eventually...lol...;)
I feel like that's my one-liner in staying positive.
So much has happened but I get right back up and carry on...kwim?

Isn't it wonderful to have that trait, Poppy? Many ppl I know are negative by default and actually need to be reminded of teh positive side of things.


I think we can exclude you from the one liner bit ;)

Wow.. that is one powerful one liner! What an interesting word to use, and u know what? You totally carry it and deserve it. We all fall... it is the warrior, the strong that gets up and keeps going...

It sounds silly, but everyday I look in the mirror (and say with conviction)my main goal.

It works like a charm! It has to do with imprinting ideas into your subconscious mind.

Mirror work as well as positive affirmations work well for a lot of people :-)
