You know the way some people are naturally positive and happy – the way some people bounce back easily from disappointments or challenges? Their reset is positive. Without prompting, they’re just happy about life, about themselves – they feel good. Some people’s reset is negative. In the absence of fresh input, things look dark and they don’t feel good about themselves.
The source of a positive reset is our connection with God – a connection with the core conviction that God made us good – that we’re all good because we’re children of God. So the more consistently we are conscious that we’re connected to God and that God is our source, the more consistently we are naturally positive in our attitude about ourself and others. The more we understand that God is Love, Light, Good, Truth and that God made us (“God made man perfect.” Genesis 1) – the more we’ll express qualities that stem from God – naturally. When we’re positive in our conviction of our goodness – we naturally have a positive and happy reset.
So when things get tough, ask yourself, “Are you sure you’re all right?” You can answer with utter confidence, “I’m positive!” and at the same time express that buoyant, positive outlook that comes from feeling connected to God.
