Moving on to the positive side of living
Like the Peter Pan story, all that you need is to think a happy thought and things get better in life. And there is research on the theory that people who smile more, stay more positive and are optimistic, not only live longer, they are happier people.
When you want to changes something about yourself and you feel a lot of negative energy inside how do you move that negative energy out of your system?
Water scenes always work for me! Just floating aimlessly down the Inlet of Life. I let it all go! Just thinking about my own breath of life, meditating on the clouds and singing a beautiful song in my head that never stops. That is my positive mantra.
You can work on yourself in a positive way if you begin to realize that you may be standing in your own way of the happy thoughts that you are wishing for.
If you are like me, and you dwell too much on past things that happened to you, you have to stop it. It may be easier said then done, but you have to start somewhere to protect yourself from yourself.
People who look at you from the outside may not even notice that you have difficulties and you may be able to cover it up quite effectively but you cannot cover it up from yourself.
Even if you have had more loss than most people, you need to take life by the horns and find pleasant ways to come back to the you that you know so well. That Peter Pan like person who does not need to act grown up all the time.
Take some time to watch Peter Pan just one more time. Robin Williams in Hook creates that perfect person who has grown up only to realize that he was a much better person in mind, body and spirit when he believed that he would never grow up– and that he could stop time, and stay in that child-like moment with just a happy thought!
