Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)
This post is a continuation of yesterday’s post. There are a lot of misconceptions about positive thinking. People assume that positive thinking fanatics prance around blowing happy bubbles that will solve every problem. The truth is positivity has to travel through darkness to reach happiness. I started training myself to think positive three and a half years ago. With each trial I face I am able to find happiness in the storm a little faster than the trial before. Some days I think a million positive thoughts but can’t manage a smile. All I know is meditating on anything excellent or praiseworthy has always brought a bit of luck into my life. Thinking of such things motivates me to accomplish great things. Sometimes it takes a while but positivity always finds happy.
Reblogged this on Dear Beloveds and commented:
“whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely” etc…
Plz do remember I am not a Christian, I don’t believe in any Religion, hence I support! People are happy, it’s cool to me, If they are not happy, something must be wrong… “whatever is true” “think about such things” Sure I like to think and even dream about it… But… In according with others Lord JC should be back soon… no-one have seen Him unto now, May (may not) He came back a lot’s of time’s, (could be) but no one “identify (someone or something) from having encountered them before; know again.” Him… (one word is missing: “recognized”) … repeat again, John 1:1…
“Finally, brothers and sisters” I love Positive, Now I do have to ‘hate’ Negative, like war, violence… sure I don’t like those thinks, but something is needed, as sample, Adam and Eve, did something wrong, … by the way where was the garden of Eden? Adam and Eve where not anymore allowed there (Cry) Next they got two sons… After they got married with an other tribe, and got children, one kills the other… thought: Adam and Eve where the first people on earth, where the (other) tribe came from? Now a strange thought came to me, thanks to the Muslims… In according with them, the killed man, became Jesus, the killer became Mohammed. Hence up-to the moment an conflict, Christians kills Muslims, and Visa Verse… It’s not really Positive, but something I like to let you know.
Sorry: “by the way where was” has to be “by the way were was”… error regretted (no-one is perfect.)
Amazing…I was thinking about just what you have written here today! Happiness it seems does travel through a darkness to find us sometimes. And I can’t recall the last time I “blew bubbles” while trying to have or to spread positivity, that’s just not what it’s all about.

LOL. Great minds think alike. 🙂 I think just might try blowing some happy bubbles.
I love it! Wish I could watch you try to blow those bubbles…I’d help you!!
You know, you’re a pretty “sassy” kind of gal…or is that “saucy?” Either way, you are very cool!
Rest your “great mind” this weekend, get some extra sleep. Rest is a marvelous thing.
The True Light
Thanks! Have a great weekend. 😀
I mean it…save me some bubbles!
lol 🙂 Blowing a couple your way!
I thought I saw some of them this morning! I thought I may have been having a “flashback” to “the days of smoke and haze!” (kidding…lol)!
Can you really blow good bubbles? I never mastered that fine art…or maybe I just got the “cheap” bubble stuff.
LOL! I can blow a decent bubble I guess. It is all about the suds.
Hey, lady! Yeah, that song “Tiny Bubbles,” well they wrote that for me. I also had problems flying my wind-up little airplanes into the tops of trees as a kid…
So it’s all about the suds, eh. That’s what my momma used to tell me before my bath as a kid.
Have a super one, Shannon…
I don’t know that song. I’ll have to check it out!
It a silly song! And it really has nothing much to do with our conversation. But it’s the only “bubbles” song I’ve ever heard of!
How are you doing today?
I’m great. I had a very productive day! I hope had a wonderful day as well.
Well, I got to talk to you, so that always helps my day! Sharing with very special people, even if its just a “hi, how are you” kind of thing always brightens my outlook…
We’ll talk again very soon.
LOL! You are a funny guy. I think it’s all about the suds. 😉
Isn’t THAT the truth! My favorite saying is:
“Good suds make big studs!”
And people do say I’m a funny guy. Well, I think they say “funny looking” guy, but that’s the same thing…right?
Yes it does. Like you said sometimes you can think of a million positive things, but not smile. During this time we must pray and continue to move forward anyway.
The ability to continue is so important! Thank you for sharing.
What a very creative and cheerful page, it was a pleasure to visit….thank you for stopping by mine 🙂
Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
You are very insightful! It took me a long time to find the path to positivity! I’m a cynic through and through but God’s been working on me! Your doodles inspire me. Thanks for stopping by my blog recently!
Thank you so much. It was the same for me as well. I am still working on being a more positive person. It’s a daily process and fight. Good luck with everything!
