Think Positive

“Positive people will never let their fears keep them away from reaching their goals and dreams. They always try new things and realize that failures are also important on the road towards success. They realize that there are time for sadness and pain, but they still see lightness and beauty of life.”


This is very true. I have seen it in myself actually whenever I am positive with myself. But to be honest with you, I often am not so positive with myself. It is hard to think on the bright side. It is easier, for me, to think that I will fail. This is partially why I joined Silver Lining 🙂 I thought, if I help other see the bright side of things maybe I will start to see it myself. It has helped 🙂 I am still a work in progress. Like the quote says, even for this adversity, I have to remember to not lose hope! So do you! Life is hard… but in the end it is how you look at it that makes it so. -Pizza

Turn the Light on In order to Find Happiness



“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

Possibly my most favorite quote was said by Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter franchise. Happiness is not always something that comes to us; sometimes, we have to go looking for it. But that’s why we have hope. Hope gives us the motivation to find happiness. In some ways, hope is our happiness. It is something that we hold on to, but is easy to slip out of our hands.

For me, after a particularly gloomy day, I feel too upset to even bother with anything. On those days, I have to look for happiness, usually by doing something I love. My passions and hobbies are my light. They are what get me out of my rut of depression. I’ll admit, it is hard to do the things you love when you don’t have the motivation to do so, but life can be hard. And that’s why we have hope. In those times where you cannot find hope, or light, in the darkness, people who care about you will be hopeful for you. Throughout life, we are forced to face dark days quite often–more than we want. That may not be our choice, but we do have a choice in how we can find the light.
