There are few things I’m hoping to accomplish with this blog, but overall my goal here is to inspire healthy and balanced living. Eating the right foods and moving your body are a huge piece of the puzzle, but I think many people overlook the mental aspect of a wholesome lifestyle.
Someone who I’ve grown close to over the past year said to me, “You’re a positive force. You really are such a positive force, Tiffany.” It took me a moment to gather the meaning from those words, especially because they were so unexpected. Ultimately, I think he was telling me that I have impacted him and potentially others in a really positive way, whether that be big or small.
Wracking my brain for specific examples, I came to the conclusion that I just like to laugh. Laughter is contagious. Is it not? On any given day I’ll love my body, hate my body, stress out over nothing or obsess over whether or not I’m getting ahead or falling behind in life or in my career. I believe that’s called being human.
The best thing you can do at the end of the day is just laugh. Release some endorphins, let go. Almost any conversation I have with someone I sneak in a giggle here or there. A smile or a laugh–forced or not–is mirrored in whoever you’re talking to (so are frowns or scowls).
My friend told me I was a positive force. I smiled, and as a result he smiled. IT’S SO SIMPLE!!!
Smile and laugh to bring peace to yourself, but also to bring a little joy to others (we’re all having a bad day in some way). Misery may love company, but happy people attract a bigger crowd. You’ve got to work at it just like everything else.
Troubles and problems will persist throughout your entire life. My philosophy is that if you attempt to be happy day-to-day it will all add up to something pretty great.
I never knew I was a positive force, but now it’s my goal to continue to be one. Isn’t this how we change the world? One person at a time? Think about it…
