If you decide to really achieve something in your life - you will. It is all a matter of how you think about yourself and what you think you are capable of. The power of positive thinking is incredible.
My personal campaign “The Power of Positive Thinking on the Homestead” was influenced by that I discovered at a second hand store many years ago. It pulled me through some pretty dark, rough times. Last month after my, I discovered it tucked away on my bookshelf. I pulled it out and read a few pages. It didn’t speak to me the way it did twenty years ago, but what it did do was give me the idea for my new positive thinking campaign. Homesteading is tough work to begin with, but add in a string of back luck and it can sink you down into a deep, dark pit of despair.
I once heard bad things happen in threes. Well I’m here to tell you, that isn’t true! At least not for our family. In the last four months, our family has had one bad thing after another happen. It can be downright discouraging, depressing and overwhelming to think about it all. Especially when the crappy stuff keeps happening. I realized last month that the culmination of all these crappy things had sunk me down pretty low and I was having a really hard time thinking any positive thoughts. So I decided to do something about it. I began a personal campaign I like to call “The Power of Positive Thinking on the Homestead”.
I’m sure more crappy things will happen. It is part of life. I’m hoping that the crappy stuff starts to happen less often, but when it does I feel more prepared to handle it. More prepared to keep my head up and keep moving forward and not let the crappy stuff drag me down again. The power of positive thinking has a made a huge difference in my life and hopefully it will in yours too!
