“Don’t be gloomy. Do not dwell on unkind things. Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. Even if you are not happy, put a smile on your face. ‘Accentuate the positive.’ Look a little deeper for the good. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life.” Gordon B. Hinckley
What an inspiring quote! I loved the line:
“Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.”
Recently I have noticed how so many
people invite drama into their lives.
Then they complain about the drama.
Or, some people walk around with black clouds over their heads. And when you see them, you just want to run because they suck so much energy from you.
We all have challenges, heartaches, obstacles, disappointment and fears. Sometimes we may feel overwhelmed or feel hopeless.
We can’t always change our circumstances. We can’t plan for every future circumstance that we may encounter. But, we can be in control of our attitude.
We can choose what thoughts are going to dominate our minds. Positive or negative? Hopeful or hopeless?
We can choose whether we allow obstacles to become the stumbling blocks or the stepping stones.
We can choose to chase dreams or give into our fears and nightmares.
We can choose to endure the daily grind or we can choose to love life.
