We get asked this a lot.
And the short answer is…..I don’t.
There are some days I want to kick rocks. That I rage at the world and I cry. That I am so incredibly heartbroken that it hurts to breathe.
But that’s not most days. Staying positive is like motivation. You are not always going to stay motivated or stay positive.
That’s where dedication comes in.
Remembering all of the challenges that we have overcome.
Keeping in mind all of the barriers we have broken down.
Remembering that I have a little warrior princess looking at me for her cues.
Keeping in mind the promises that I made to her when she was born and the woman I need to be for her.
Grounding myself in faith and the firm belief that we have a story to tell.
Trusting that we are impacting lives by living ours authentically and unapologetically.
Starting each day with a grateful heart.
Reminding myself that a grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.
Laughing. A lot.
Looking for the silver lining in everything.
Finding joy in the small things.
Making the choice to shine even though we’ve been through some storms.
Celebrating our victories–no matter how small.
Encouraging others….and by helping others see their own light, we become even more inspired.
Being an enthusiast of life.
Teaching inclusion for all and helping others become comfortable with that.
Every single time I feel that positivity slipping, I answer it with one of the things I just listed.
Small little reminders that there are so many beautiful reasons to be happy………
