One of my favorite bloggers, Zen Habits, recently posted on ‘How To Be a Positive Person in 300 Words or Less‘. I consider myself a very optimistic person but at times I do feel myself start to boil over the little things. Sometimes you need a quick 300 word reminder which is what I suggest using the below for. Planning a wedding is rough, so take a minute to remember to smile and be grateful throughout your day!
Realize it’s possible, instead of telling yourself why you can’t.
Become aware of your self-talk.
Squash negative thoughts like a bug.
Replace them with positive thoughts.
Love what you have already.
Be grateful for your life, your gifts, and other people.
Focus on what you have, not on what you haven’t.
Don’t compare yourself to others.
But be inspired by them.
Accept criticism with grace.
But ignore the naysayers.
See bad things as a blessing in disguise.
See failure as a stepping stone to success.
Surround yourself by those who are positive.
Complain less, smile more.
Image that you’re already positive.
Then become that person in your next act.
