The journey of life could be ‘one hell of a ride’. On our best days, it could be fascinating like being on top of the world, and on our worst days, it could be appalling like being down in the dumps.
We could be sitting comfortably in our rooms, sipping a cup of coffee, cherishing all the good moments of our lives, feeling content with what we have, and that’s when the negativity, slowly, starts creeping inside our mind.
We refuse to acknowledge it until it gets too good to ignore and outgrows the positive thoughts in our mind.
And then, our mind is befuddled.
Our brain starts lying to us. It wants us to believe that the world we live in, is indeed, a bad place. All of a sudden, we start developing immense hatred for the things that caused us pain, we start regretting all the bad decisions that we made in the past and we also start cursing ourselves.
But that isn’t the solution for solving all our problems, issues or worries.
While complaining about something could make us feel better in some cases, we don’t realise that we are simply engulfing ourselves in those problems more and more.
Earl Nightingale once famously said, “We become what we think about.”
The more we consume negativity, the more this world will seem harrowing to us. And the more we try to remain calm, the more joyous this world would look like.
We always look for answers as to why we are stressed, but not even for once we realise that all it takes to overcome negativity is just a mind with an abundance of good thoughts, a significant amount of love, a great deal of kindness and a whole heap of happiness.
