This weekend was a glorious, sunny weekend here in the UK. It seemed that everyone was out, in the parks, on the beaches, anywhere they could catch some rays and enjoy the great weather. It seems to have been a long winter, with the massive flooding on the coasts here, the devastation the weather and water brought to businesses, homes and families. Then we were struck with massive gales that affected the whole of the country. I don’t think there were many places that came off unscathed at some point this winter.
Everyone has been talking about the dreadful weather we’ve had this winter, but I doubt it will be long before many are complaining about the heat in the summer too. It seems nothing pleases us any more, there’s always something to complain about.
Too many people spend too much time criticising, regretting, being stuck in a place they don’t want to be, and it’s a shame because there is so much more to life and so much about life to enjoy.
A great way to start turning your thinking around is to try to focus on the good things that happen rather than the not so good. At the end of each day try to spend a small amount of time for yourself. Keep a journal where you can write each day. Try to write about all the things that were good about the day, things that went right or things that made you glad or content. Soon enough you’ll find your thinking starts to focus on the better things rather than the things that are not so good. It is also really good practise for you if you are thinking of blogging in the future. It creates a writing routine in your life.
I have been blogging for a number of years now and every week I try to find a topic to write about that is positive and that encourages others to think in a positive way.
Start your journal today and if you get to the point where you want to share your thoughts with the blogging community drop me an email and I’ll help you to set up your future online.
