Starting today I need to forget what’s gone. Appreciate what still is and look forward to what’s coming next.
August 26th - give yourself something to look forward to.
Start where you are. Use what you have, Do what youcan.
I think we all need something to look forward to. A reason to keep us going. I was feeling blah, not wanting to do much of anything so in order to perk myself up, I decided to have a little labor day weekend party. It gave me a lift, just knowing I had something special to do and plan for. A get together with family and friends is just what was needed to spur me on and get rid of the blahs. Having something to look forward to in the future can give us the motivation and persistenceto keep moving forward.
If we don’t have something to look forward to our days can be come dull and lack luster. I believe that there are times we have to make our own sunshine. Turning what might be a dark dreary day in to a happy and bright one. We need to control our feelings much the same way. Having something to look forward to, makes the whole world look brighter and full of possibilities.
Use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.
Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and need something to jog us out of it and I think I’ve found a way to do that now that I’ve got something to look forward to with the party coming up on the weekend. I always say that the anticipationof any event, be it a holiday or a party is half the fun anyway! Getting ready for them can be just as much fun as the day is itself.
Anticipation can be a very powerful emotion that has the potential to improve our lives. It might even be necessary to livinga full and satisfyinglife. It’s the stepping stone to hope . As humans, we all need things in our future to be excited about and optimistic about. It doesn’t matter if it’s something that is meaningful or trivial, as long as we have something to help give our mind a positive view of the future.
If you find it hard to find somethingto look forward to, Make plans, get tickets to a show or schedule to meet up with an oldfriend or start a new habby. There are truly plenty of things out there that will make your future look a little brighter or happier and relish the anticipation of good things to come. I know I did!.
When you focus on problems, you’ll have more problems. When you focus on your possibilities you’ll have more opportunities.
