What If We Expected the Best Instead of the Worst?

When we think about the Law of Attraction, we only seem to apply it to relationships. A woman attracting a man and vice versa. But what if the Law of Attraction could be used for drawing in the emotions that we want to feel?

What if happiness attracted happiness? If confidence inspired confidence and laughter led to laughter?

On some level, we all know these things to be true. But when we are in the dark side of our psyche bad thoughts intrude. We get depressed and full of self-judgment. Negative self-talk. Why do this to ourselves? Perhaps that’s a vestige of what we heard from our Exes. Be aware of this and take actions to turn those thoughts into encouragement. Positive reinforcement of the fantastic women we know ourselves to be. We all have felt bad vibes coming from a stranger. We think, “I wonder what happened to them?” We go on our way.

These days, we owe it to ourselves to be a positive influence. Smile at yourself in the mirror, girl. You are doing better than great!

Embrace that. Even if only the barest minimum of pleasantness is all you can muster up, I think that is much better than the alternative.

I know from experience, that if I’m grocery shopping and I smile at someone, most times they smile back. Some folks thank me for the smile or they comment on it. People have come up to me and said, “You look happy!”

One man actually gave me a hug! He walked into Trader Joe’s, walked up to me, and said, “Can I give you a hug? Because you look like a happy person.”

Obviously, that is particular to me. Strangers respond in a positive way when we put out an affirmative attitude. This not only affects how our own day is going, it influences those around us. That is why many times at Target, I have let the exhausted lady with all of the kids go ahead of me.

  1. It has gotten so hard for me not to expect the worst that I think that if I don’t I will let myself and my few loved ones down.

    My loved ones are my wife and daughter. They are my sunny and happy days. I have dedicated my life to them, which I don’t regret. It’s just that, most of my friends and acquaintances have done the same thing, to the point that we don’t have time for each other anymore. Either I’m with my family or I’m asleep.

    I need to break the habit of negative self-talk, but my lifestyle situation comedian says; “what’s the point? I entertain you, don’t I?”

    I’m of the opinion that everyone who I come in contact with that gets up a smile for me….is laughing….and not in a good way.
