If I practice positive thinking and try to remember the more happier times, then I will change my outlook on life and become more optimistic. I would rather be open minded and live in a more peaceful environment than be close minded and be at war with myself over silly little things.
During the past month of attending Crossroads, a confidence building course, I have to say that it was interesting to learn about discovering purpose as well as the importance of having good relationships. It makes me realise and appreciate what I have in life including my strengths and talents. In seeing this, I want to focus more on building on what I'm good at as it brings me so much joy and significance in my life. I have learnt that people who remain and those who come into your life has quite an important reason - they are there to encourage you in all areas. The people who leaves your life and don't stick around, it's better that way because negativity clouds your purpose and poisons your attitude.
For the first time ever in a long time I feel more encouraged to interact with people as I'm somewhat of an introvert. Also, I realise that it's important you cannot change the past - past events are always set in stone whether you like it or not. But no matter what, the past is a small part of you - it makes who we are as individuals. Having said that, you have to soldier on and live your life to full potential and never let the past affect the future. The future is always going to be bright and full of promises when you're a much positive person.
I have learnt more about my personality and I found out that I score rather high on my feelings on a personality test. With this knowledge I aim to think rather than assume/be sensitive, and use my head a little bit more rather than rely on my feelings most of the time. Being ruled/controlled by emotions is never a good thing because it makes you your own worst enemy.
When I'm at peace with myself that's when I am at my best. I start to enjoy life and become more relaxed. I want to never lose the creative side of me, which is writing. Not only is it my emotional outlet and a method in which I can express myself in so many ways, it is also a talent/gift that makes me unique as a human being.
I want to be positive when it comes to searching for jobs. Instead of getting depressed about constantly being rejected by work companies, I will take into consideration that it's their loss, not mine. In other words, I shouldn't take rejection to heart. I shouldn't choose to give up hope and cower away from challenges and opportunities.
