Have you ever noticed that you create what you focus on?
So try this with me. Start actively focusing on the positive in your life, and recognize moments that are special. Whether those are moments of success, moments of joy, or moments of love, write them all down and put them into a jar that you decorate with the quote, "Collect Moments, not things."
Then on New Year's Eve, open them all and reflect on how amazing your year has been.
Just the act of recognizing each positive moment instills gratitude in everyday life, as well as a positive attitude.
You can't look at a jar with happy memories and not smile a bit to yourself at everything that you've experienced.
Make a habit of focusing on the positive or what I like to call the 'gems' of every breathe-taking experience we have while on earth.
