Positive Thinking

Positive Thinking

 Even though there are newer and more exciting social media platforms than Facebook, it’s still my favorite. I spend way more time on there than I do on my Instagram for example. I think it’s because I’m a creature of habit. I much prefer something that’s been around for a while over something that’s new and innovative. It’s also probably because my mom wouldn’t allow me to have a social media account for the longest time, so when I was finally allowed to have one, this was the first real one that I got. I had a Myspace for a bit, but I jumped on the bandwagon kind of late so by the time I started using it, everyone had moved on to something new. Whatever the case may be, it’s still my go to for mindless scrolling.

When I wake up in the morning, one of the first things that I do is go on to Facebook. It’s my one-stop shop for all important things. If I click on the right hand side then I can see everything that’s trending. It’s there where I can read up on Trump’s latest antics. I also get to find out what all of my friends are up to. Do you know how long it would take to ask each one how they’re doing individually? It would take ages, but by going on FB, I get to see everything at once, and if something is important enough then I can text them about it later. And then of course, there’s the fun stuff. As I scroll through my feed, I get to see tons of videos and pictures that are guaranteed to put a smile on my face. Sometimes I’ll also see things that make me sad, and other times I get to see things that seriously cause me to think about an important topic.

As I scroll down, I see everything, but I don’t react to or share everything that I see. Some of those things that I brush off happen to be the posts that tell you to “like,” “share,” or “comment” if you agree. They’re usually Jesus posts that will give you this instruction. It’ll say something like, “If you believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior, then hit share and something good will happen to you today.” I usually just roll my eyes or laugh at it because I know that a Facebook post doesn’t have the power to make something good happen to me. However, I’ve been thinking about this lately, and I realize that these posts have some merit.

Now, I’m a logical human being and I know that if I like, share, or comment on the post and something good happens to me that day that it won’t be because the Facebook post has some magical powers. Nevertheless, it may have something to do with the law of attraction. I’m a firm believer in the notion that you attract to your life what you think. If you’re constantly thinking about negative things, then you’re only going to see negative things happening to you. On the other hand, if you think about positive things then you’ll attract more positive things into your life. So by liking, commenting on, or sharing that post, you think that something good is going to happen to you. And because you think that this is going to happen, it will eventually.

Positive thinker, when you have a positive mindset, you’ll see positive things all around you. You’ll start to open up and notice more ways that you can bring positivity to you…

Someone who thinks negatively will continue to be upset for a long time if they find out that their car was hit while they were in the store shopping. They’ll hold on to that negativity and continue to bring more into their life. But a positive thinker might view it as protection against theft. No one’s going to want to steal a car that’s messed up, but they might want to do it to one that looks brand new. And then from there they won’t have to stress about having to worry about getting their car stolen because they accept it the way it is.  

That’s why it’s so important to think positively. When you think positively, your life starts to become happier and more joyful. So what are you waiting for? Start your journey towards a more positive life today!
