I feel lucky

A few weeks ago my mom recommended a book for me to read that was all about maintaining a positive mindset in your daily life. She knew that I had been going through a bit of a rough patch, and she thought this book might help me see the light at the end of the tunnel. In months prior my dog had passed away, my best friend had moved out of town, and my heating and cooling unit had broken down on me. All of these things happening over time had turned me into a bit of a negative person, but once I sat down and read this book I began to try out the lessons it was teaching. Instead of complaining about not having proper heat during the winter due to no heating unit, I would think to myself how lucky I was to even have a roof over my head. Rather than sulking all day about losing my dog and my best friend, I would try to think just how lucky I was to have them in my life at all! Slowly after time I started to feel the shift in my mindset, and with the positive mindset better things started happening to me. I was given a raise at my job, and I was able to snag a brand new state of the art heating and cooling unit off of ebay for half the price of a normal one. I really do think that by reading this book I was able to start focusing on the positive more, which in turn brought in more positive things into my life! If you are ever in a rut in life, learn from me and don’t think of the negatives, but the positives instead!
