How About Taking A Look On The Bright Side?

On the brighter side

Try to look at things on the brighter side. Get your heart and mind free from the negativity and evil of this world. The bright side is usually the best place to focus our attention.

We all get ourselves into bad situations a times, some of the time it is our own fault, yet other times, things just happens to us that way unfortunately. But, I have discovered that the quicker I can look to God for help, the quicker I can get back on my feet. I encourage you to do the same. Take your problems and concerns to the Lord in prayer.

Another way to look at it would be that the Lord will not allow us to bear more than we can handle without an option out from under it. Keep your eyes on the Lord, not the waves of the sea, for when we take our eyes of the Lord, the fear of the waves can overwhelm us which they tend to do. To look at the bright side, we have the Lord Jesus who loves us, came to sacrifice His love for us, was crucified for us, died for us, and rose from the dead for us, giving us the Holy Spirit to guide and direct us. ~ Bill Greguska






God Gives Us All We Need In Life To Help Us Look On The Brighter Side!



24 Ways How To Look At Life On The Brighter Side!

  1. Accept the situation. If you have done all you could, then turn the page.
  2. Bad things often happen to “so-called” good people, except that life happens.
  3. Be flexible for unexpected things, and God works in strange ways.
  4. Consciously choose optimism over pessimism.
  5. Do an act of kindness as often as possible. We are commanded to love one another.
  6. Don’t get down on yourself, especially if you are doing your best. God doesn’t make junk.
  7. Don’t beat yourself up over things that go wrong. God created the world and had to start over with the flood.
  8. Eating healthy can make a big difference in your attitude.
  9. Exercise 20 minutes daily to help release endorphins and improve your mood.
  10. Fill your life with positive people who will rub off on you.
  11. Flush out negative thinking from your thought life.
  12. If flexibility is key to living a life with less drama, sign me up for that.
  13. Once you’ve accepted your situation and have taken the necessary steps to fix it, it’s time to turn the page.
  14. Pat someone on the back for doing something good. Encourage one another.
  15. Plan time to do something that you love.
  16. Practice finding three positive things in every situation, making it a good habit.
  17. Practice seeing the good in everyone and everything.
  18. Remember that even a broken clock is correct twice a day.
  19. Remember, good people, bring out the good in people.
  20. Step back and take a comprehensive view. Look at your situation through God’s eyes.
  21. Trust in God always and try to give people the benefit of the doubt.
  22. We always choose how we look at things and see the good in others and ourselves.
  23. When things go wrong, we often start blaming ourselves and learn to let go.
  24. Your life is like a thick book; today is just a page. Look at the big scheme of life, not just the snapshots.

Doing things that you don’t like is no fun at all sometimes. I told my kids that the negative part of doing something could be compared to 40 lbs. of pain, but the reward in doing that painful act has a positive result of 400 lbs. of gain. (doing homework, being responsible, etc.) On the bright side, try to look at it as pain on the other side is gain.





Train Your Mind To See The Good In All Situations Because God Makes Good Out Of Bad Situations!

  • An excellent example of what I am referring to is when you are having a great time, you likely want it never to end, but it seems to be over in a flash in reality. On the other hand, when you are in a difficult situation, such as a bad day at work or school, you wish that the pain would be over as quickly as possible.
  • Be aware of your progress. If you know that something is in God’s will, you can accomplish what you wish, even when others can sometimes discourage you.
  • Being realistic about things, it is not sometimes easy to be optimistic during hard times. It is often tough to see when you’re in the middle of a bad situation, but the solutions are there if you are willing to look hard.
  • Changing the way you look at things can make a massive difference because it will make you start seeing the bigger picture, and you’ll be able to notice between the things that are important compared to the things that are not.
  • On the bright side of every situation, there is always something good to be found. If a door is closed, a window is often opened. Things that will happen will never last forever, which can ultimately be a good or bad thing, depending on your perspective.
  • When you hold on to negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions are in no way beneficial to you in the big picture of your life. It’s not healthy to continually dwell on the negative thoughts and things that are going on around you.
