I constantly find myself complaining about things that make me sad, or anxious or whatever and I look past all the good stuff. I forget to remember the things that actually are good, and that is not a good thing (I am aware I used ‘good’ far too much in that sentence). I know that I am not on my own and I can pretty much guarantee that every person at some point or another has thought the same thing. The conversation I have with myself, yes everyone talks to themselves, always goes the same way and I always come out of the complaining conversation thinking to myself, ‘Why once again, am I letting the chaos of this world, change me?’. No matter how much bad and tough stuff is going on in your life; exams, relationships, loss, you name it, nothing is worth your sadness. In the end life is a beautiful mess and things will go wrong and fall apart but also things will go right and fall together. It will not stay bad for long, there is always the opposite… something bad happens and something good will come from it. Although it is tough, you have to try your best to not let the world make you upset.
Smile in the face of the bad and remember that it will get better. Be the reason someone else smiles. Your happiness might make someone else’s day, your smile is contagious. It is better to be the person who smiled at someone and did not get a smile back, than to be the person that did not smile at all. You can make a change through positivity… the most powerful change yet.
‘Let your smile change the world, but do not let the world change your smile’
Lots of love
