Positivity +2

Today's post is the second in my positivity series (first post can be found here) Recently my health issues have really been stressing me out, I don't seem to be moving forward at all, and it's so hard to stay positive when your life is on hold and you so desperately want it back. Chronic pain, and the symptoms attached to ME can have a tendency to eat away at you, and release a smoke machine in your mind making it hard to see any light. I don't want to pretend I'm the most positive person in the world, because I'm not, but all things considered I think I'm giving it a good go! Staying positive is like sticking to a good diet, or using your gym membership, you need to train your mind to allow it to be natural instinct. It takes time to get into a routine with it and there will always be days where it is harder, but it will get easier the more you use positive thinking as a tool.
I definitely need my positive energy boosted a little at the moment, and  in case you do too here are some things that might help your mind smile a little.





































































If you know any good ways to maintain a positive outlook, let me know in the comment section, I could use some tips. Do you consider yourself a positive person?

Lots of love and positive vibes,
Hayley-Eszti

  1. I love these pictures-- that's one way the internet is totally winning. (Ok, there are tons of ways the internet wins) But it's so so positive to accidentally see one of these inspirational pictures and it actually gives you a brighter outlook on life. Happiness is in your control. Thanks for sharing and hope you can find your inner happiness :)

  2. After 21 years with diabetes, the autoimmune version, type 1, I am beginning to feel complications setting in. Yet, I feel blessed that I didn't get it as a young child, which is the most common thing for this version. Sometimes I feel like I just don't want to get up. But since I can, and I know I'm blessed for this too, I do. And you know what simple trick has helped me move along: I just put a smile on my face. You are have so many more difficulties than I, so I don't know if it would help you. I read it somewhere and tried it. It has worked for me for a long time now. Sending SMILES to you my friend.

    1. Smiling is more powerful than we think! We both know how much is sucks to live with illness and the effect of medications, but we both now have adorable dogs who make smiling everyday so much easier!

  5. I'm a worrier, so I know it's hard to let go of some things. I've found talking about it, or even writing about it helps me. I worry about my daughter's CVS, which is debilitating for her. She needs medication to cope too, and the side effects aren't always pleasant. I tell her and you what hubs told me, 'there's no sense worrying about things you can't change', and to me that means coping and doing the best we can, but also it means being stubborn about trying. Good luck Hayley-Eszti, you have the right idea!

    1. I have a section on my phone where I tend to write down everything that is worrying me, and let it all out and that does help. I think your advice is great and I shall take that with me, I hope your daughter sorts her CVS out ok, good luck to her. Thanks D.G!

  6. Great post, I think you come across as very positive on your blog considering you live with a horrible illness! We all go through bad days, just tell yourself you are strong and can beat anything, because it's true. YOU CAN! All the best

  8. "Don't worry, be sexy" is such a good one! People need to stop worrying about what they look like and just accept that everyone is beautiful! Xx

  10. I find that freewriting at the beginning and end of each day really helps me clear my mind of negative things. In the morning I type it at 750words.com and in the evening I write in my diary (I don't always do both or either, and the important is not to make it into another 'should do' activity).

    Another thing I find useful is my favourite quote: "Finish every day and be done with it.
    You have done what you could.
    Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
    Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
    begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
    to be cumbered with your old nonsense." by Ralph Waldo Emerson

    1. Occasionally I write out all of my thoughts, I find it helps too especially when there's a lot of negative energy clogging my mind. I love that quote, thanks for sharing it with me :)

  11. Hi Hayley-Ezsti. this is a good post and helpful to many of us.
    As a child I believe I learned to be a positive person because I always saw my mother as needing help.....she was sick in bed a lot (depression). She was mostly sad and I felt it was up to me to be happy for her. I did this for years and can say it did help her on occasion more often than not.
    It became very difficult to maintain this as I grew older but I did learn to be happy throughout all of this....things can be so much worse than they are.
    I think you have this ability, as terrible as you feel at times, to see the positive in most everything. And yes, a smile as Inger above said can make all the difference in the world.
    Letting go of what I can't change......my mantra for the next few days. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jim, what a shame your Mother suffered with depression :( It must have been difficult growing up seeing that, but pain and unfortunate situations only make us stronger. We just have to try and 'always look on the bright side of life' I guess :)

  12. What a beautiful idea to post about, Hayley! I love it. It is so touching that you are reflecting on the good things that have come through your struggle with illness, and trying to keep a positive focus. I wholeheartedly agree with you, it makes all the difference. One website I really like to use for inspirational quotes and pictures is Tumblr. You can make a blog there and follow others, and I find that if you search for encouraging posts, it's really upbeat. My page is http://raewrites.tumblr.com/

    I'm not sure what your beliefs are, but a Christian author that really touches me is Holley Gerth, and she writes a lot of blog posts and books that are filled with great little inspirational tidbits. Here's her website if you'd like to take a look! http://holleygerth.com/

    I hope you have a wonderful day, thanks for sharing!

    Lots of love,
    Rachel
