stay positive You know how life sometimes has a way of throwing curve balls when you least expect them?  I know you know what I mean because it has happened to all of us at one point or another, right?   We’re standing up to the plate, expecting a straight fast ball and then, boom, the curve ball comes in and throws us completely off our game.

Well that’s kind of how life has been treating me over the past little while.  One curve ball after another.  One uncertainty after another.  One trial after another.  Sometimes life is just hard and overwhelming and it can be really hard to stay positive.  We’ve all heard the saying, “Attitude is Everything”, but when you are going through something hard, it’s one of those things you just don’t want to hear.  Sometimes it is really hard to change your attitude.

Ever since I was about 12 years old I have kept a box full of inspirational and motivational quotes that, through the difficult times in my life, I have pulled out and read over and over.  I keep that box in my night stand and have found that even if I’m not feeling very positive, I can change my outlook on any situation by surrounding myself with positive and uplifting thoughts and people.

I came across this video and thought it had some really great tips to help us stay positive when overwhelm, uncertainty and anxiety start to creep into our lives.  I loved it and thought it would make for a great Monday Motivation today.

Hope you like it!
