Being Positive: Love others, Love yourself

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Ever notice how we as individuals, people, we think in negatives? Not intentionally of course but some of us tend to live in the negative spectrum of our lives instead of our WHOLE lives for as negative things do happen so does positive things. Putting our focus on the good and not the bad isnt very easy for some, myself is included in that category. Growing up in a very, VERY negative home and a constant negative attitude put forth to me I can very easily come up with a million and one negative things about myself, but ask me to come up with something good, well thats a bit harder. Since our family therapy session on Saturday and the therapist's suggestion on "Name one good thing that happened today" I have been thinking......I NEED to have my own list of positives of the day, no matter how small they may seem, they are very important to point out and acknowledge.

Positive Thought of the day----My daughter is beautiful, therefore I MUST be beautiful

Positive feeling of the day---feeling the love from spending the day with my daughter, and her actually wanting to be with me.

Positive Color of the day---Today the color is pink, a rosy blush pink. The beautiful color of cheeks when one gets giddy with love

Positive Action of the day---My positive action of the day watching movies all day long with my daughter, watching her play Sims and showing interest in what she was doing, Baking Orange rolls with her today, since I haven't baked in ages AND enjoyed doing so.

Today was a good day. I have good friends here on SP that have been there and are helping me to understand Unconditional love. I have been trying and working to understand this over the last month or so since my therapist brought it up. I have found I GIVE unconditional love all the time, even when I have been hurt so many times I continue to open myself up to strangers I guess I am looking for acceptance because I have yet found someone other than my DH that will stick with me through everything. I dont understand unconditional love fully and I have yet to feel as though I am a deserving recipient of that love but I am moving forward which is all that I could ask for of myself.

Often when things are not as they seem to be, it is because we do not see the whole vision as we are asked to take baby steps.--Madysin Taylor

    emoticon blog Lisa. It made me smile to read such a positive blog from you. You are right about people focusing on the negative spectrum. I think you are in good company on that one. I am happy to see that you are trying to change that. I love the positives you wrote about today. emoticon I am sorry you've not found someone to give you unconditional love (other than your dear hubby). I think you are a beautiful lady, a great mother, and I think an emoticon friend. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon You are the emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am happy that you are feeling more positive. Writing down the positive things in your life can be very beneficial. I always feel better when I write a gratitude journal and focus on the positive...I agree we tend to see the negative first, especially when it comes to things about ourselves. I am very self-critical. Keep telling yourself that you are a loving wife, mother and friend, and you deserve the best in life!

    Something we could all do instead of focusing on the negative.

    Nice blog! Anytime spent with daughters is wonderful, so glad you had the chance to just "hang" with her and enjoy the time. And pink is my favorite color, so the thought about a day being pink and rosey--loved that!

    Great blog, and I can relate with the whole childhood situation. I'm glad you are working towards a positive goal with yourself, and it sounds like your daughter and husband are very lucky to have you.
