Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today’s post is going to be about staying positive, even when it can be challenging.
I am not going to lie, It has been really hard to be positive this month. I had so many goals and To-Do’s and amazing things I wanted to accomplish, but everything gets in the way and everything goes wrong. For example, yesterday I planned on planning today’s blog post so I could spend today working on my overdue podcast episode and catching back up on Camp Nano. Of course, my perfect plan didn’t work out. So now, I am rushing trying to write this blog post, doing schoolwork, posting overdue pictures, working on an overdue podcast episode.
Also practicing for my easter performance and youth worship.
If you can’t tell I am very stressed out.
There are two ways I can handle my stress and frustration.
- Bask in the frustration and procrastinate.
2. Acknowledge what went wrong and still work on your projects.
What do you think is a better choice? I think Number 2 is the best choice.
Even though staying negative is obviously a lot easier, in the end, it makes things harder. But, staying positive can help you accomplish more things and stay on top of your projects.
If you are feeling negative and stressed when working on something, it’s okay to take a break. During your break, work on a different aspect of your project, or on a different project that might be easier to do. That way you won’t waste any extra time during your day.
It can be a challenge to stay positive but in the end, it always benefits you!

Are Positivity and Negativity a personality?
No. Positivity and Negativity are both choices you can make. You can choose to be positive and you can choose to be negative. For every emotion, you feel you can make a choice to feel them or not. When I choose to be positive, even when I feel negative I can learn to control my emotions. I am a very emotional person and I am not good at hiding my feelings (thanks to my awesome acting skills uwu) But I can choose to stay positive by putting positive thoughts in my head.
The key to staying positive is to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Imagine you are in a case against your brain. You are your lawyer and you are defending yourself. You have the evidence about what is true about you. (does this make sense xD?)
If negativity tells you that you look bad today, tell yourself that you look good and that it’s in the inside that matters.
If negativity tells you that your acne looks bad, remember that there are some people that have facial deformities and remember that you are BLESSED ( beautiful, loved, excellent, saved, special, Enough, dandy)
If negativity tells you that you are unworthy of Gods love, remember that God will always love you and is waiting for you with open arms, ready for you to repent and come back to him.
