Positive Attitude

 

Let’s face it, work sucks. For those of us who punch a clock each day, work can feel like a scene from Office Space.

Why A Flower Brings You Happiness

Happiness

Happiness

He stood in front of the weathered gazebo. The overcast sky, heavy with moisture. A friar stood with him. A best man, a brother, anxiously waited. Loved ones gathered. Happy, joyous. Relieved the skies held their drops.
The music radiated from hidden speakers. A flower girl accompanied by an energetically bored ring-bearer came down the aisle. Pink petals fluttered in the gentle breeze.
One, two, three couples proceeded down the aisle followed by her, the one we all came to see.
The pink petals laid on the runner. Bouquets filled with vibrant hues of purple and pink. Contrasting against the gray sky. A celebration of love. A union between two hearts. Together they were one.

Being Your Better Self

Better

Why do we find being a better version of ourselves so difficult? I think we all have the intent and for the most part, we all desire to be “good.” But we all are taught to win at all costs. It’s a cultural lesson to be the best, we must do whatever it takes. Regardless of others.

Yet, have you tried to be your better self? If you come from a place of genuine good, your success in life and in anything you do, is more attainable. Ironically, being your better self is actually selfish and simultaneously altruistic. You feel good when you make others feel good. That is the ultimate high.

Is money that important? To survive yes. But to truly live, not really. To succeed, is that important? I guess it depends on what you want to succeed in. Do you want to draw the most beautiful drawing? How about painting the most beautiful painting? Do you want to raise happy and healthy kids? How about succeeding in all three?

Your Better Self

The best version of you isn’t hard to find. It takes a little effort and some thought. But once you find it, you will know. Your heart will tell you.

I have found my better self when I strive to do the right thing. Doing the right thing isn’t the easy thing, but it feels right. Others may not see it. Others may disagree or even take offense. But a better you makes a better person and eventually others come around. If they don’t, honestly that’s on them. Business, family, friends, everything is about relationships. Success in all these things cannot be found without positive relationships.

If you bring your best temperament to everything you do, your relationships are better, stronger, healthier. Your success is a result. Your heart and mind are at peace. You are happier. People like happy people. Think about that.

Strive and be the best you.
