Your greatest weapon against stress and negativity is your ability to choose one thought over another. Happiness escapes from those who refuse to see the good in what they have.
When life gives you every reason to be negative, think positive. Smile, not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and thankful for all the good things you do have and all the problems you know you don’t have.
Stop discrediting yourself for everything you aren’t, and start giving yourself credit for everything you ARE.
We have to learn to be our own best friends, because sometimes we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies.
