Look on the Bright SideWhen things seem topsy turvy and you don’t know what is going to happen next, it is possible to look on the bright side of things and find the good.  I know, this seems like a crazy idea because there must be a time when there is no good right?  Wrong.  There is always something positive in life to find.

Here are some ideas on how to find that one thing in each situation:

  • Look for one good thing.  There’s always something good in a situation.  Sometimes it’s hard to find but if you take the time you are bound to find at least one positive thing.  It may take you a few days or even a few months but in hindsight you will always find something that was a blessing and not the curse you thought it was at the time.
  • Vision Journal.  Spend a few minutes each morning (or the night before)  writing out how you want your day to go as if it already happened.  This is a great way to find good things to look for in your day.
  • Look for a God Wink!  One of my favorite books is called “When God Winks”.  It’s about intentionally looking for signposts and messages from God.  Ask God to reveal Himself to you each day!  And, ask Him to open your eyes and ears so you don’t miss it!

Looking on the Bright side doesn’t mean you have to be Pollyanna.  It just means that you don’t have to spend your precious time stressing, moping or getting frown lines.  Once you know how to shift your energy you can do that any time and once you start it will happen automatically for you.
