How to Look on the Bright Side No Matter What

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Life will often times throw you a curve ball, but no matter what you need to look on the bright side. You have probably heard that statement or something like it more times then you care to admit. Being able to look on the bright side no matter what is something that we all know that we should do deep down. The thing is that when things seem to be at their worse, it is very hard to see the things that are going well for you. Perhaps, you may even think that nothing is going right for you. It is time to snap out of it and start to look on the bright side!
Step One
Grab yourself a notebook and pen to get ready to write. Typing this activity to look on the bright side no matter what on a computer does not have the same affect. There is something very emotional with the act of putting pen to paper. You can feel and have connections with the words that you use to convey your thoughts. Anything from a journal to a spiral notebook will work to help you to look on the bright side.
Step Two
List all of the things that you are grateful for in your mind. Just start writing whatever comes to your mind. There are no right or wrong answers when you are trying to look on the bright side. You may be grateful for your children. Perhaps, you are just grateful that you finished high school. Anything is a possible add on to this list.
Step Three
Write down at least 10 things that happened to you or that you saw today that made you happy. It could be something as small as the fact that the Dunkin Donuts guy remembered to put napkins in the bag. If you can think of more then 10 things to write to help you to look on the bright side, then write them down. The more smiles that you can come up with the better.
Step Four
Read over the pages of things that you just wrote and smile. Smile at all the great things in your life both large and small. Now you are looking on the bright side no matter what else is going on in your life.
There are going to be times when it seems that the world is against. You may feel like if it were not for bad luck, you would not have any. Everyone has these types of days. Some times they last longer, some times they are brief moments. The best way to get through whatever life sends to you is to try to turn it into positive thoughts. It may seem like a cliche but you should always look on the bright side of any event. It works for the big down swings as well as the small ones. You just have to embrace this as your new way of thinking. Cliche or not, it will make your life better.
