Since there is No podcast this week – Lack of time – I have decided to do a little Motivation post – Inspired by – If You will ..

“Thank You for all the crappy days”
Roaming around @harbourfrontcentre and looking at so many smiley, happy faces. I thought to myself: why we associate happiness with positive experiences/moments though it’s mostly the negative experiences that shape us into a Positive person. Our negative experiences guide us to a positive life.
Own your experiences, your story & your journey. I am thankful to every negative experience that made me count my blessings even more & made me realize how lucky I am.
What are you thankful for today? ”
When I read Her words yesterday My heart jumped.
I tell her often that she reminds me of a modern Rumi
This is what happened after reading her words…
No one exists in a vacuum it’s just a matter of what you do with that inspiration
This was playing in the background – Metric is one of my favourite bands – the lyrics and guitar ALWAYS get me .
“If you’re still alive
My regrets are few
If my life is mine
What shouldn’t I do?
I get wherever I’m going
I get whatever I need
While my blood’s still flowing
And my heart’s still
Beating like a hammer “
I had taken a photo of this street art – HEART last weekend and Nida’s words brought home why I felt so drawn to this Heart.
See the segments of the heart .
It is Intact yes but it’s made up of pieces .
Are those pieces Special moments in life or Moments that have shaped us because they weren’t so “positive”.
What Shapes Your View on Life?
Is it the Good stuff that has happened to You or is it the moments that were difficult?
Is it a bit of both ?
These words especially from Nida
“though it’s mostly the negative experiences that shape us into a Positive person. Our negative experiences guide us to a positive life.”
I have been feeling a huge amount of change lately.
I’m with Nida in her thinking on this one – I wouldn’t have taken the time to write & share If I wasn’t.
I am a big believer in Gratitude – With each breath – Inhale it – exhale it …. Be it …
Which leads me to this thought on Gratitude – We have all seen it…
Nida’s Thoughts ignited something in me and I will see where they take me.
How do you guys view positivity and gratitude ? xo
