Savouring The Good




“Life isn’t all grand, but it isn’t all miserable either. There’s both sweet and sour in every day. So why focus on the ugly when you can gaze at what’s beautiful? Concentrate on the good.”
Richelle E. Goodrich

So often we find ourselves looking at our lives with regret. Yet rather than dwelling on what could be better or what you feel you should be doing, why not pay more attention to the areas of your life which are already going well? So you can we deliberately enhance the impact of good things in your life.

Pause for a moment and consciously be aware of things you want to remember later, the sound of a loved one’s laughter, or a touching moment between friends.

Trying to avoid negative thinking is just as important as thinking positively. After a bad day, try not to focus on the negative things that as happened. Studies show that the more negative thoughts people have after a personal achievement, the less likely they are to enjoy it…..People who savour the positive sides to every situation are happier at the end of the day

Comparing good experiences with unpleasant ones gives us a reference point and makes our current situation seem better,

Those who openly express their good feelings tend to feel extra good, because it provides the mind with evidence that something positive has occurred. Experiments have found that people who expressed their feelings while watching a funny movie enjoyed themselves more than those who suppressed their feelings.

After a bad day, try not to focus on the negative things that occurred during the day. Decide to savour the positive aspects to each situation……you will find yourself happier. Commit to seeing how good things really are today.

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.
Marianne Williamson
