On positive thinking and how it affects everything.

Today I want to talk to you about something more personal than my favourite highlighter or my latest sunglasses purchase. I hope you like the variety here on my blog. I really do enjoy talking about the superficial things in life but from time to time I feel an urge to share some thoughts on a more serious and important subject. So this is what I do in today's post.


You probably already know what I want to talk about today from the title (or the picture haha). I would like to discuss and share with you my thoughts on positive thinking and how it really does affect all aspects of your life. 

I think I have always been a pretty positive person. I do believe that people have a tendency to be either a more optimistic or a pessimistic character. But I also believe that you can train your thoughts and your outlook on things. Some of you might think, why would it even matter what I think.. it doesn't affect what is happening. And I am sorry but I have to disagree. 

Some might call it Karma, others might call it the Law of attraction. I can relate to both but it doesn't really matter how you want to title it. The basic meaning is still the same: what you give, you get. By giving I don't mean only giving actual things. I also mean the thought or the words you give out to this world. As much as I do believe in the power of the universe, I understand that not a lot of people can identify with this kind of thinking. But there are much more logical things behind this theory than just a blind trust in the universe. 

Let's look at it in a more direct and realistic way. If you radiate positivity through your words and your thoughts you attract other people who have a similar outlook. It also works the other way. If you have very negative thoughts, they will always show in your words and your actions. That will attract other people who think and act in a similar way. Someone who enjoys life and has trust in their future will be less likely to interact with someone who has a negative and pessimistic outlook on things. And the people around you have an impact on your mood, which will impact your thoughts and then impact your actions. And in the end, your actions have the biggest impact on your future and your life. 
Imagine you are sitting with a group of friends and everyone is moaning about how your classes and exams have nothing to do with your future job and why would you even learn all that and everything you do is so pointless. Would you feel motivated to sit down and study? Or will you be more likely to watch some Netflix and forget about your "pointless" classes? 

So yes, your thoughts have a direct connection to your future. It is no magic power which converts your wishes and thoughts into reality. It is just you. And whether you do it consciously or subconsciously.. you should stop believing that your thoughts have no power over your future. There is no such thing as a fixed destiny, you create your own future. So think positive and surround yourself with positive people. And by the way, this is one thing that I love so much about my boyfriend. I might be the more positive person of the both of us, but he keeps on motivating me to work harder, push harder and be the best version of myself. Everyone should have this kind of person in their life. 

I could talk about this subject for years and years. There are so many more reasons to why I believe that positive thinking will give you a positive life. But this is the basic idea. If you want me to talk more about these things just let me know.. I would happily do so. 

And always remember.. you create your own reality.

  9. Love this post, and everything in here is soo true. Sometimes it feels good to rant and talk crap with someone. But, that only feels good in the moment, it doesn't solve anything. And for the most part leaves you feeling angrier or shittier.
