Hey everyone! Sooo today I’m gonna write a blog about encouraging others, ourselves, and being positive because let’s be real, we are all gonna need some encouragement and optimism to get through the rest of this school year!
Have you ever noticed those types of people who are just so negative? Like the kind of people who never have anything nice or kind to say? Yeah, me too. I think sometimes, we can all be that kind of person. It doesn’t matter if it’s to other people, or to ourselves, sometimes we can all be huge discouragers. Make sure to evaluate yourself and see if you have the tendency of being negative! Being negative is no fun, so let’s all live life in a positive and encouraging way!
The key to encouraging others is our own attitudes. We have to have certain traits to be more encouraging of others. We need to make sure that we have a positive energy, and are a generally happy person! If we are negative, how can we spread positivity? The answer is simple- we can’t. We have to first learn how to be encouraging and positive to ourselves and in our ways of thinking.
There is always joy in the world, so if you are feeling down, just think about all the good! Some good things I think about to cheer me up when I’m sad are Jesus and His goodness, Panda Express, and sitting at the beach. I also would recommend having a bulletin board or photo album that has encouraging notes and happy memories that others have given to you! I have one in my room, and I look at it almost every single day!
If you’re having a bad day, what’s the first thing you think? Is it, “ Oh wow I hate today I wanna just lay in bed for hours. “ or is it “ Wow, today was rough, but it’s going to make me stronger. “ There is always a reason for bad things in life, and we have to be strong and persevere through them. I’m beginning to learn that life is about our mindset. It’s about how we live day to day, and how we think. A ton of little thoughts make up our personalities, which affect our personalities, relationships, and most importantly our faith.
The main way to be a true encourager is to trust in Christ. He is our greatest comfort and encouragement. Through the good times and the bad, we can rest in the fact that he always has a plan, and it is always good. You can also use the power of prayer to pray that you can be more of an encourager!
If you or someone you know is going through a rough time, make sure to yield towards Christ. Encourage others always, and love them as Christ loves us! We also need to make sure to be positive always! If you have any prayer requests or just need advice, don’t hesitate to let me know! I’ll give the best advice and encouragement I can!! Have a great first week back at school, and I’m praying that you can share Christ and His goodness every single day. – Cams
