Having a hard time staying on the positive side of life? Try keeping a Blessings journal, writing down all the things/people you have been blessed with. Also start a Gratitude Journal, writing down EVERY little thing you are grateful for, hairbrushes to water & see how your life lights up :)
By reminding ourselves of the things and people we have been blessed with, however small or insignificant it may seem, reading it will remind you of how blessed you are. Writing out the grateful items will bring you to a place of thankfulness that you have come as far as you have & keep you going!

I love to write and anybody who knows me knows I keep many journals. One I keep is called a Humour Journal, another a Blessings Journal and a Happy Journal. They sound similar but are different. When I am feeling down I pick up one of these and flip through my entries and it picks my mood up.
Humour Journal is where you write things that make you laugh; Blessings is where you write down ALL you can think of you are blessed with; Happy Journal is a place to write down the thinngs, people etc., that cause happiness. Writing them down preserves the memory & lifts you when you feel down.
