Look for the Good Things in Life

 Hello there! Today's post is an extension on my weekly #52weeksofhappiness posts. Recently I've noticed quite a few people going some troubles in their life, and whenever you watch the news, there's always something bad that has happened to someone. Something that needs to be remembered is that everyone goes through bad experiences, so you're not alone.

 I chose this quote, as always, from pinterest. I have this printed out and stuck on my wall as a reminder to myself. However bad a situation may seem, there will be some aspect in your life that is good and that you can focus on. Situations can be overwhelming and having something to focus on can help you get through. What you also need is time. Nothing is going to be resolved overnight, you're not going to go to bed upset and then wake up happy and refreshed the next day. Just give yourself time.
 Try to do things that will take your mind off what you're going through. Go out with your friends, and do things that you enjoy. Depending on your situation, you do need to give yourself time to deal with the situation. Be this through talking to someone, or simply through time by yourself, it's not good to push your feelings to the side- as they will eventually come out one way or another.

I'm not trying to say 'this is what you must do' but this is what has helped through personal experiences. Just remember however bad it may seem, it does get better. And as the quote says, "there is always something to be thankful for" you just need to look for it.

  1. Things happen for a reason, and the reason is always enough to be grateful that it happened.
    I also try to always have an attitude of gratitude. Such a change in perspective, and life in general. :)

    Great post! :)

    1. Thanks! :) I know going through something bad can seem like the end of the world, but if you manage to look past it to the good things, you will eventually overcome it for the better :) x
