Positive minds

Change is good

What changed you?

See results

Life is what you make of it!

The change made my life a reality.

I did not know of Croatia, but have learned from those experiences.

I laughed when I felt sad, and cried when I no longer could take what came my way.

I chose to handle my situations with a positive mind.

You too can do it!

Through many conversations with acquaintances I have been told of my courageous behavior.

I feel better each day with my positive thoughts and ideas.

The power of thinking opened my life to another level.

Sometimes I feel like nothing can ever hurt me.

I go on with a smile each day. My life is good for me.

I don't think the worst of any situation.

Sometimes panic gets the better of me but I quickly realize that will pass.

How do reflect my outlook on life?

I think positive and do positive.

My attitude is on the top shelf.

I am proud of learning skills.

I understood my actions but did not have a clue of how these actions would affect me.

I just stepped into the open fire and burned myself silly.

Life is what you make of it!

I know my positive thinking would mean more to me if I don't ignore situations.

It does not mean I should bury my head in events.

Positive thinking allowed me to approach all situations with an opened mind and way.

I think of the best and focused on my better life experiences.

Self-talk

The thoughts that go through my head are positive and negative.

What I created in my mind made me stronger.

I grasped what I knew will take me to a livelier lifestyle.

I practiced happy days these days became part of my daily routine.

How did positive thinking affect me?

Positive thinking got me in a good place.

My health is good.

No sign of depression.

My distress levels were reduced.

Colds and flu are rare for me.

I am in order mentally and physically.

Daily exercises reduced other minor and major illnesses.

I coped easily in all hard times.

When I felt stressed I overcame the situation positively.

There is no reason to feel down with life.

Any new activity can help tremendously.

Do whatever makes you happy.

Make you the priority.

Do not let negative thinking get in your way.

When you are happy with your completed tasks appreciate the compliments.

Do not ignore the good in you.

Avoid blaming yourself for what went wrong.

Do not think the worst if one small issue goes wrong.

It does not mean your whole day will be spoiled if started off with a bad one.

Nothing in life is all good or bad, there is also a middle side for you to see.

Not everything you do in life is a total disaster.

When you do better you will perform at your best.

I know that from my experiences from the greater changes that I have had over time.

I did not forget how to enjoy myself.

Don't let time slip by you without doing what you mostly enjoy.

If you hold on to what will never be, time will slip by and nothing much will be achieved.

I identified the changes in my life.

I started each day with a new idea.

I felt happier and more positive when I accepted my new life.

My good sense of humor got me through many tough times.

When you experience a rough patch don't walk away from face up to that challenge.

Don't leave it for the next day.

Deal with all times immediately.

Laughing helped me greatly.

I know not to say anything to myself I know I won't say to others. I am calm with myself and most courageous.

I know what is good for me.

Each opportunity is a new one.

I chose to tackle situations from my own point of view.

I can change my schedule freely.

I make sure to try to work it out with my own idea and in my time.

I enjoy a challenge.

I don't give up!

I see opportunities with my own ideas.

Living in a foreign country has changed me in many ways.

I don’t deny reality.

Did change make my life a reality?

Change is inevitable!

I did not think of going to another place.

Everything happens for a reason and so did this change for me.

I often wondered what it would be like to visit Croatia living here was not what I had on my mind.

I don't regret my move to Croatia.

I know my experiences have taken me forward and have lots more to see.

Any challenge is a great one for me.

I like to be noticed.

I passed through many stages.

My daily activities include:

Walking works well for me.

I eat healthy meals daily.

Communication is key to a healthier lifestyle.

I love what I do.

Outdoors are my best times during the warm weather.

I think positive for me.

I enjoy learning.

Gardening is a pleasant pass time.

Cooking is enjoyable when I have a new recipe.

A quick hello to friends makes my day more approachable.

The simple things in life are most appreciative.

All individuals are affected by change. The way you choose to pick up the pieces is entirely up to you.

If you think negative about change your life will be affected in a downward spiral.

If you think positive about change your life will be affected in a much better way.

I did not see change in a negative way.

I grew with my changes.

I saw reality when I came to Croatia and have spent my days with great hope.

I hoped for the better and got what I hoped for during my hard times.

Times have changed and you should not feel alone and unhappy.

Avoid going down a sad path.

Listen to your heart.

Appreciate your surroundings.

Sometimes you just don't see what is in front of you. Instead you search for something that is further away.

Time lost shows you have not seen life yet.

Be prepared for it all.

Nobody can be you or do for you.

Be original!

Always be yourself.

Sometimes people don't see you as you see yourself.

Open up and let these people see you for who you really are and that is your true self.

Think and do for yourself.

Communication is what makes a difference in your daily life.

I have learned what communication meant to me when I did not know the Croatian language. Everything around me felt boring and strange.

You can't spend your days without communication.

Summer time is an opportunity to be outdoors and have fun.

Don't depend on others to make your life a success.

Only you can do that for you.

Sometimes others can look down when you are down and not in the same standard as they are.

Remember they will also be be looking up at you when you have achieved your successes.

True people don't look down at you at your worst times.

A true person is the one who sticks by through all times.

Certain people come into your life to show the true meaning of life.

Always see reality in what don't want to.

The heart yearns and you can fill that yearn with what you know best.

Love and let be!

Smile and fill your life with positive thinking.

It doesn't matter what others think what you think should be most important.

When there is no light all you see is darkness.

Try to see light even in that dark patch.

You will notice the good around you but don’t fail to see the bad too or the not so good or bad.

Stay in the moment!

My life

Life is what you make of it!

      Devika, your words convey your vibrant and positive outlook on life. You have presented a beautiful necklace of bright and shining pearls. Whatever I pick up and ponder, it gives a fresh insight into the way of living life.

      Words ' When there is no light all you see is darkness. Try to see light even in that dark patch ' and 'You will notice the good......' show much wisdom and are almost poetic too. I read this hub twice to savor it's real taste. Thanks for sharing such valuable and great thoughts.

      Hello Devika.

      You are so right in all you've said: changes are unavoidable for one who moves away, especially other continent, culture and language. "Listening to own heart"- that small inner voice is always good to follow. This article is packed with principles leading to contentment and conclusive happiness. Important is to know and be sure " what I want?!" - and when we moved to other continent it became our home, our destination of fulfillment. . I think in any case, there isn't way back, no regrets only positive keeping things in perspective.

      Voted up and interesting.
