I LOVE the fall. Warm and sunny during the day, temperatures dropping at night, the leaves start to change color. Great time of the year for long hikes and weekends camping. I’m sitting outside in my bathing suit with my laptop in front of me as I am writing this post to you.
I am a positive person at heart, I tend to see the glass half full and I usually wake up smiling every morning. My friends tell me that I am a purebred optimist. But of course even us extremely positive people do have our bad days, heartbreak, setbacks, and pain. We too are facing the voices of fear in our heads and we also go trough tough periods in life.
Do you need to be an optimist in order to live a fulfilled life? I believe it helps to have a positive attitude, but I also believe it is not mandatory to be an optimist at heart to create the life you want. I realized that in the moments I do not feel positive, I have learned to take positive action. Coaching has taught me to do that. To literally set myself in motion and to be very determined. Taking action towards a positive outcome has always helped me to crawl out of my hole in the ground. Often the small steps I took made me forget about the pain I was in and got me back into a flow.
