Next Time You’re Feeling Blue

Hello Fashionistas, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! Today, I want to talk about something that is super important to me: the power of positivity.

If there is one thing I have learned throughout my life, it is that your happiness should always be a priority. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to be happy when you are going through some of the toughest times in life. When life gets you down and makes you feel blue, remember that it is almost always temporary.

Three years ago, I was about as negative as it gets. With almost every situation that happened in my life, I always saw the bad in it. I was constantly reminded by my dad to try and not let things bother me because, in the end, it just does not matter. So, after realizing how badly negativity had affected my life, I made a positive change.

In everything that happens in my life, I attempt to find the good in it. This is not easy, but it is completely worth it. When you try to see the good in the blue times, you end up happier and feeling brighter. Being a positive person is a lifestyle that has overcome my life and made me a better person. I have been able to help others the same way my dad helped me years ago.

During my sophomore year in college, I worked on my positivity a ton. I found a journal in my bedroom that I decided to write in each day. My writing consisted of three things; how I was kind to someone that day, how I was kind to myself, and how someone was kind to me. This helped me to find the good in my day-to-day interactions. It got to a point where I was going out of my way to go and find these acts of kindness each day. My advice to you is to find something that makes you want to be a better person and focus all of your energy into that. The outcome will be worth it and you, in turn, will become a better person.

This Fashionista is radiating with happiness. Though her clothing may be blue, her attitude is surely nothing close. Blue is represented as the color of sadness, but it doesn’t seem like this Fashionista feels that way at all. Being positive shows in every way. It brings a fresh look to your face that makes you brighter.

Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity.

What are some ways you stay positive on a day to day basis? Let me know so I can try them out!
