Positive thoughts

Today is one of those days when my super active mind is trying to string together loads of seemingly unrelated but certainly relevant stuff. We cannot function keeping every aspect of our existence separate from each other, can we? What influences us on one front has a lasting effect on the rest of us too. It is imperative then to make sure that only positive thoughts and feelings touch us, right?

I’ve realised that sometimes even having something to look forward to is enough to make me happy. A simple diversion from routine fills me with renewed vigour to take on whatever else may follow. It’s true, positive thoughts and affirmations go a long way in developing the right attitude to lead life happily by example.

Creating art, a good workout, an adventurous bout in the kitchen, playing with my kids, going on long drives, a walk on the beach holding A’s hand and so many more things give me joy. Yes, not all of them can happen at once and a lot of them are dependant on others. Does it mean that positive thoughts like these shouldn’t be my source of happiness? Of course not.

We are social animals and cannot exist in isolation. However, it is imperative that we surround ourselves with people with good and happy vibes. Negativity is more contagious and lasting than the dreaded pandemic and has no vaccine as well. Life is full of good and bad experiences and what helps us maintain sanity are the right attitude and complete surrender to whatever comes our way. Isn’t it?
