I am one of those girls that always tries to keep the focus on the good things in life and I tend to not dwell on the negative. Have I had bad things happen to me? You bet, but I have chosen to not have them be a part of my story. I like to focus the things that make me smile. To help me do this, I have what I call a happy file. It is a physical file that I have in my filing cabinet. I also have a virtual file on my computer where I put kind words that were told to me in emails or on Facebook. Recent things placed in it were a birthday card from my parents where the words just spoke to my heart. I have also placed email clippings from a friend telling me that I can do whatever I set my mind to. These things make me smile. These memories make me happy. In a world full of the 24/7 news cycle of bad news I need a place to take refuge from all of the doom and gloom. I often wonder what would happen if the world started to focus on the positive and not the negative?
My challenge to you would be to create a Happy File for yourself and your immediate family or even coworkers this week. What would happen if we all started to shift our focus to the positive in our lives? Who wants to join me and see what a difference focusing on the happy can do?
