How I Stay Positive, Hopeful and Happy In This Challenging World

Today someone asked me a very important question. She said, “How do you keep your positive spirit?” She went on to say, “I know everyone faces challenges and feels down from time to time.”

Who I am Willing to BecomeThis brought back to mind how many times I have been asked, “Does anything upset you?” or the compliment, “Every time I see you, you have a smile on your face; how do you do it?”

All I can say is “CHRIST!”

Please allow me to share some of my beliefs and activities that I help me…day-by day!

I first start off each morning reading Psalm 1. This is my signature Psalm. It tells me of God’s blessing of love, power and belonging. It hands some universal laws that when followed offer a powerful promise by God that I will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever I do will prosper. I not only believe this promise, I expect it. Praise God that this is my season.

I then move on to several hours of gospel music. I like songs that associate me as a child of God. One of the songs that I absolutely love is “Everything Glorious” by the David Crowder Band. The song lyrics start out like this:

The day is brighter here with You
The night is lighter than its hue
Would lead me to believe
Which leads me to believe

You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
And I am Yours
What does that make me?

Wow, how empowering is that?

As the day progresses…life happens. But in the mist of all the drama I remember seven key things:

1. God is not sleeping and His love for ME is everlasting.
2. I am responsible for my own happiness and success.
3. If God does not do anything else for me for the rest of my life, He has already done too much.
4. Compared to 80% of the world, I live like a queen.
5. What I am seeking is also seeking for me and in due time, I will meet it.
6. Yesterday – with all its mistakes, pain and drama no longer exists.
7. I have the ability to create today whatever my heart desires.

Next, I watch inspiring videos that keep me positive, hopeful, and happy. I have dozens, but I will share two with you here. Please watch and enjoy:

Finally, I stay focused on my relationships, my personal development and my goals.  As I do this, I remember the words of Henry David Thoreau:


“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.”

It is my hope that this inspires you and that you will create a system of remaining positive, hopeful and happy in this challenging world.
