Like Leo from Zen Habits, my life has undergone a complete shift by making a conscious decision to be more positive in life.
It has taken me on a new path, a new journey, and has empowered me to live my dreams, and I couldn’t have started Circle+Bloom without this new mindset.
When you are in the throws of trying to get pregnant, this is so very hard to do. But making it an intention in your life…right now…can make an enormous difference.
Zen Habits posted this little gift – a 300 word guide to becoming more positive:
Realize it’s possible, instead of telling yourself why you can’t.
Become aware of your self-talk.
Squash negative thoughts like a bug.
Replace them with positive thoughts.
Love what you have already.
Be grateful for your life, your gifts, and other people.
Focus on what you have, not on what you haven’t.
Don’t compare yourself to others.
But be inspired by them.
Accept criticism with grace.
But ignore the naysayers.
See bad things as a blessing in disguise.
See failure as a stepping stone to success.
Surround yourself by those who are positive.
Complain less, smile more.
Imagine that you’re already positive.
Then become that person in your next act.
