Keep your face to the sunshine and you can never see the shadow. – Helen Keller
I like the above quote, which to me means two things. 1) As a Christian I see it as always looking to Jesus, the Light, as my Guide so I’m not focusing on the bad stuff. 2) Look for the positive, keep your mind on those things and the negatives won’t overwhelm you. Kind of the same thing, those two points, aren’t they?
Reminds me of Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
So, don’t look for trouble because it will surely find you. Take your focus off the negative things, the disappointing things, the frustrating things, and look at it all through the eyes of positivity, through sunshine.
Have a wonderful day! ♥
What helps you when gloom threatens to rob you of your sunshine?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂 ♥
When I start feeling down, I start listing the things I am grateful for and it is a long list. It soon perks me up. Always look to the positive!
That’s such a great thing to do. So much of life is wasted on the negatives, I think.
All the best to you, Darlene! 🙂
