I am naturally a positive person but the last few years have been rough and my positivity waned. A little knock back here and there can really get you down but sometimes the knock backs can show you how fragile life is and to be grateful for everything you've got.
I'm trying to be less reliant on possessions for happiness and I haven't been shopping or bought anything for two months now. Originally this was not through choice but now I find that I am much happier focusing on what I have instead of what I need.
I feel very grateful when I look at my life and instead of thinking of what I need, I am content and happy with what I've got.
Of course this does not stop me browsing Cath Kidston looking and sighing at pretty things!
How do you keep positive?
