We all face difficult times and struggles. How do YOU remain positive? What gives you faith?

This made me smile and made me think of what my dad often says, "one of the first miracles God did was change water into wine." Have no idea if that is accurate, but he says it a lot!
Yeah, I also chose to incarnate during the brink of madness/chaos.
In addition to your comment, I find that my memory helps a lot, as one who forgets their past is truly lost...
Sometimes I wish I knew the plan! But I like thinking there is something "beyond spectacular" in store for me. What a great thought!
Will check it out.
Yes, healthy distractions/hobbies/interests are important--especially to stop you from thinking negatively and instead get you into a positive frame of mind.
That IS a great way to start a day!
Very nice! And you're not the first to mention wine.....
I like the idea of visualizing a solution coming in a miraculous way--thanks for that!
A mental "walk". I like that.
Good! I will look for your hub!
I admire your faith and am intrigued by the coincidence of the sermon. I will have to look up Ken Hutcherson.
Talking it out is always a good thing!
Glad you are happy! Sounds like you have a good formula. I agree that creative expression and music are so important to keep us uplifted in life!
Three great points-- change our thoughts, watch our self-talk, and be grateful!
Very nice. Except I'd go for tea. But, yeah!
I have! Along with many other versions. Definitely puts a smile on your face--and you can't help but want to dance along!
Well-put! I like the idea of the examining, and also of the reminder of those who look to us for strength.
I LOVE two of your quotes here: "there is nothing that can't be overcome" and "our spirits are more precious than anything we can pursue." Words of wisdom. Thanks!
Good question to remember!
Yep, Good advice!
I also love to watch comedians, on tv, or at local live shows. Laughter is so important in life!
Very interesting, Violet Flame. I will definitely check these out.
It's good to get it all out with some music---and I like the "hope for something more." Very uplifting thought.
All great words! I agree--changing your thoughts is key!
That's a great thing. You are blessed.
Like you, I LOVE sports and music and DANCING. All bring me a lot of joy.
I agree. Attitude is everything! Sounds like you are blessed with great family and friends, too.
Friendship and laughter, two VITAL parts of a happy life!
I'll have to check it out. Thanks!
I like that: "positivity grows were problems prevail." I like that a lot!
Sounds like all the things I turn to, too!
I keep telling myself that I need to get back to meditating...this post is a good reminder to do so!
I agree, as do a bunch of others who answered this, that music is so important!
I agree about the power within us, and positive thoughts. So important!
We all need those kinds of words!
All great suggestions! Thanks.
It's hard not to know the plan, but to have faith and hope that the plan will "prosper" us is a good feeling.
A good reminder. I've heard the saying, "either worry, or pray, but don't do both."
Faith is so important. It seems to come easier for some than others.
"Better times are coming"....a saying my friend just told me her mother-in-law always had.
Interesting. What kind of pilgrimages?
Glad you have these things to bring you up!
