The Power Of Positive Thoughts

The Power Of Positive Thoughts

Good things happen to those who believe they will.

So often we are caught up in the negativity of the media surrounding us, swept away by the bad that is constantly highlighted and blinded by the events that make this world out to seem so disappointing. Sometimes, it feels almost impossible to take a step back and reflect on all the love and goodness that fills this world to the brim, and this is exactly why people have such a hard time finding true happiness today.

There is immense power in positive thinking, more than we will ever be able to truly comprehend. Our brains, working together with our spirits, have the ability to create the lives we have always dreamed of, but only if we channel the right energy throughout them. If you think good things will happen, they will. If you dream you can, you will. If you begin to send out positive vibes, you will actually begin to attract positive experiences and people like a magnificent magnet.

It's not an easy task right off the bat. It takes a lot of conscious effort to control your thoughts in such a way that you are filtering out the negative and channeling in the positive. It's important to remember that you cannot control everything that happens to you or in the world, but you can control how you handle those experiences. Good or bad, there's a wrong and right way to approach situations in regards to your mental and spiritual nature. If something bad happens to you, to a loved one, or somewhere out in the world, it does not mean the world is a terrible place that's out to get you and everyone else. The world is actually in your favor, you just have to learn how to create the path for the positive experiences to flow to you.

It is much easier to find happiness when you are freely allowing happiness to find its way to you. If you are constantly stuck on a bad memory or moment and never cease to dwell on it, your happiness will never be able to find a breathable opening to get to you. If you're having a hard day or period of time in life, let yourself indulge in the things that you truly enjoy, whether that's reading a great mystery book, hiking the highest peaks in the United States, training for your first big race, or adopting a new pet, you have to do the things that make you feel amazing.

There is immense power in positive thinking, more than we will ever be able to truly comprehend. As soon as we allow ourselves to feel only the most positive of thoughts, we will begin to radiate true happiness like we never have before. Good things happen to those who believe that they will with all of their heart.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sorry Guys, Girls Actually Want Attention From Other Girls

Who else knows fashion, beauty, style, or looks better than other females themselves?


Men are ya know, "great." We love 'em (somedays). Some girls cry over men, run their lives around men, and make life choices because of men.

But, why should we try to impress men? Men don't understand the time it takes to "beat our face" with makeup. Men don't understand the soreness our arms experienced to get these perfect curls. Some men don't understand how excited we are to score big in the Urban Outfitters clearance section.

Some ladies live by "beauty is pain." But sorry guys, they are not here to impress you.

Why would some ladies spend all the time, effort, and money for men, when some men can't distinguish mascara from lipgloss.

Women are trying to impress other women.

You ever get a compliment from a fellow female and they're like, "Girl, yes girl. The outfit, the hair, YES." Ladies understand and appreciate our efforts.

Do you think what ladies post on social media is to get men pouring in their DMs? No.

We are sharing pictures to inspire and create a group of women to be creative and stylish themselves. Us ladies are trying to build an empire of strong women, and we will not spend time just to look good for men.
