Why Is It Usually Easier Said than Done?

I’m striving to live one day at a time as best I can.

I’ve been writing about positivity every Monday for more than 10 years. I’m frequently exploring new paths to positivity, new ways to view it, different perspectives on what it is and isn’t, and more.

There are three reasons why I share these ideas.

  1. To inject positivity into a world dominated by a fear-based society. Especially on a Monday morning after the weekend.
  2. In the interest of clarifying genuine, usable positivity over toxic positivity.
  3. To remind myself to seek the positive.

The third is often the most challenging. In the face of being only human and reacting to matters that come up personally and impersonally, it’s easy to lose sight of positivity.

Recently, a situation has presented itself that’s been majorly plaguing my ability to feel positive. It’s been causing me a great deal of distress, anger, and self-doubt. While I can keep a handle on it most of the time, certain things make it flair up and make me feel negative.

Don’t get me started on the upcoming election in the US. How people can blindly follow a convicted felon who doesn’t even deliver clear speeches is beyond me. Not to mention the BS…
