What If You 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 can also be used for attracting the emotions that you want to attract?

What if happiness attracted happiness? If confidence attracted confidence and laughter attracted laughter?

I think on some level we all know these things to be true. When we are in the dark side of our psyche, when we are depressed, when we are thinking bad thoughts about ourselves and cutting ourselves down, when we are only looking at our flaws to make ourselves miserable and using nothing but negative self-talk, how can we think we will ever meet the person who we dream will bring us sunny and happy days?

Not that we have to 24 hours a day be Pollyanna’s. I’m talking about just having a pleasant attitude about your day and yourself.

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 that even if I’m grocery shopping if I smile at someone, many, many times they not only smile back, but they thank me for the smile or they comment on the smile. People have come up to me and said, “You look happy!”

One man actually gave me a hug. He just said, “Can I give you a hug? Because you look like a happy person.”

Obviously that is not just singular to me. Strangers respond in a positive way when we put out a positive attitude. A positive point of view. Because when we do that on how our own day is going, then we are affecting how their day is going. That is why many times at Target, I have let the 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.
