Positivity

“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

“Success Is Counted Sweetest”

Success is counted sweetest

By those who ne’er succeed.

To comprehend a nectar

Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple Host

Who took the Flag today

Can tell the definition

So clear of Victory

As he defeated–dying–

On whose forbidden ear

The distant strains of triumph

Burst agonized and clear

– Emily Dickinson

Description: This poem describes how the one soldier who has been defeated understands success better than the whole army that was victorious.

Only hard work can lead to success

Only hard work can lead to success.

It’s not easy to eat healthy if you’re not too used to it. Everywhere around you, you’ll see unhealthy food that will tempt you, whether in real life or on TV. Seeing others eating unhealthily will make you want to eat that way as well. Everything is a temptation, and it’s so easy to just satisfy your desire, and so difficult to stay away from the food and to stick to healthy food. But if you don’t do this, you won’t reach your goal to become healthier. Granted, the occasional junk food item to reward yourself is acceptable (don’t torture yourself!), but if you give yourself too many rewards, you won’t see any results. Work hard, no matter how hard it is to stay away from unhealthy food, and the reward you get will taste better than any unhealthy food!

Challenge: Give encouragement and hope to someone who may need it. Helping others can sometimes be the best way to help yourself. By spreading joy through your words of encouragement, you get to see a smile appear on a stranger’s face. That smile, will make you hopeful for the same to happen to you!  

Work hard to get a good result :)

One of my favorite kpop idols of all time said this quote. And as an accomplished singer and dancer, he definitely has the right to say it. It’s widely known throughout the kpop industry, and to all the fans of kpop, that the path to becoming a singer in the industry isn’t an easy one. However, J-hope’s love and passion for dancing made him resolute and determined to succeed in what he had always dreamed of doing. When listening to him talk about the hardships he went through and how much he misses his parents now that he’s away from them, I feel so sad yet proud. He always mentions how much he loves his fans and that he couldn’t be happier doing what he is doing, and that makes me happy to be his avid fan. I look up to him, and hope that I also have the courage to follow my passions and dreams. I feel proud of how far J-hope has come, and he is just one of many people who work endlessly every single day to achieve good results. So I encourage all of you to not lose hope, and continue following your passions just like J-Hope did. You’ll be surprised how far just a little hope can take you 🙂

Don’t Give Up

Don’t give up- the beginning is always the hardest, so let’s keep on going till the very end.

As a child, I had always had a fascination with the piano. I loved watching and hearing people play beautiful songs, their hands moving quickly over the keys. Soon enough, I developed a longing to learn it myself. But when I actually started taking piano lessons, my dreams were broken into pieces. Learning the piano was much harder than I thought it would be. And it didn’t get any better from there- when I took a long break from classes because of personal issues, it took me a while to get used the piano once I restarted my lessons. I had to skip levels to catch up, and I took a new certification test which required hours of practice learning multiple pieces. I started to get tired of the piano, and I didn’t find much joy in playing it anymore. But my friends told me that learning the piano is naturally hard, and it takes a while to get used to it. So I pushed through, and once I finished learning one of my pieces, I felt so happy. It was such a beautiful, romantic song, and I was ecstatic that I could play it whenever I wanted! I started regaining my love for piano, and I still continue lessons to this day. Although it’s hard, the benefits are huge. So if you’re struggling with something in your life as well, don’t give up right away- you never know how things might turn out!
