Hello everyone it’s Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to my blog! As I head into a stressful year of school and have a lot going on, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about thinking about positivity and keeping positive during this time. I realised that positivity can mean a lot for so many different people, so today I just wanted to share my perspective on what positivity means to me. Let’s jump into it!
What Do I Think Positivity Means?
This blog is a positivity-centric blog so I’ve written countless posts on the definition and how positivity can affect other people, but I’ve never really shared my true perspective. To me, positivity is about keeping hope alive, and that’s the key message I draw from it.
I think this allows for positivity to be a saviour during the bad times. I don’t necessarily think positivity will always give you an automatic solution – but I think that it’s a really great tool that just helps you to lift your mood, even in the bad times.
I’m not saying it’s about being 100% optimistic, because it’s not. It actually helps with positive realism. It’s not a solution but it can definitely be a stepping stone to finding solutions that can realistically help a problem.
How Do I Use Positivity In My Daily Life?
Honestly, I think this blog in particular has made positivity such a normal thing in my life – but I still think I have a long way to go.
I think one way it really helps me is that it allows me to keep my mind on the present. Me and my friends tend to look ahead sometimes, especially to out public exams (which are in 7 months time!) and we speculate on negative things that could happen if we don’t do well now.
Well, positivity has allowed me to say, ‘Let’s just keep positive and not think about it.’ And it actually really helps with calming myself down and not getting too stressed.
Another thing positivity has allowed to happen is stopping negative self talk. I think once in a while, everyone says some negative things about themselves like they’re ‘So bad at something’ or they’ll ‘Never be good’ at a skill. Actually, I used to do this quite a bit! But coming in with the perspective of positivity, and my parent’s persistence, I’ve been able to change these phrases into ‘I can improve’ or even ‘Maybe this isn’t for me!’ Slightly changing your language can have a whole different impact and effect on your own self esteem – and I really wouldn’t be doing this without positivity!
How Do I Want To Implement More Positivity Into My Life?
Something I’d really like to do in order to implement more positivity into my life is to do this in a realistic way. For example, when writing my weekly goals I could include some affirmations in my planner or I could just write small note to my future self letting myself know that I can do this.
I think it’s important to add positivity into your realistic goals as it really allows for more desire and passion to achieving them and gives you more confidence in getting them done!
Thank you so much for reading this post, I hoped you liked my perspective! My next post will sort of be a follow up post – but this time with getting you all involved so stay tuned for that!
