When all is going well positive comes easily. You know the genuine feel of positive and the ecstasy and strength of will you have when all is going your way. When there are problems that genuine feeling of positive just doesn't bubble up so easily.
There is a feeling of fuzziness and lethargy hanging around you that causes you to question what you want & if you are in the right place. You can't fake positive, there is no benefit to you to fake positive.
When you are in a dark place, you know it won't last but you are there and you may as well make the most of the situation.
How would I know the light, if there was no darkness?
Your completeness has come about through joy and suffering.
In every situation fall back on that knowing feeling of gratitude.
Gratitude is the attitude for every condition and circumstance.
Stretch your emotions, claim the attitude and use the darkness to sharpen how much you know about yourself. Setbacks and despondency are all part of the mix, along with expectation and resilience to widen the life you are living and constantly creating.
Embrace each strength and weakness, each perfect and imperfect quality. Faking positive when inside you are crumbling will not improve the circumstances. It will only delay your return.
