The only one positive word that you’ll ever need to use (and two other nice ones)

White roses

I have always been a fighter, even when I was down, especially when I was down.

I was such in a bad shape, physically, emotionally and spiritually just after my divorce, with two small children from my marriage, a home that I freely gave away to my ex-wife, exhausted after years of suffering and failures of fixing my marriage, that it was hard for me to look at life in a positive way.

I was a man filled with guilt towards my children that I had failed them in building a happy and complete family for them. I felt guilt, remorse, sadness. As a devoted catholic, I felt that I had lost my soul and was going to hell. I was only 29 years old and felt way too young to go through all of these.

Moreover, I felt so alone because in taking this decision I practically destroyed the two pillars of my life: family and church.

I had nothing left except my car and I said to her (yes, I refer to my car as “she”): “Now it’s just you and me baby”, that definitely made me smile a little and then drove away with a sack full of books and another one filled with my clothes.

One year of struggle followed – one year in which I tried to keep my children happy and unaffected, pay the bills, do well at my job and maintain everything at a decent level. One year in which all I wanted was to separate myself from the world and do nothing, just to mourn. Just wanted to fall into a deep depression and die.

The only one positive word that you'll ever need to use

The first nice positive word is HOPE

My spirit never lets me die, though, or maybe it was my huge ego or maybe it was God’s Grace. I don’t know what it was exactly but something made me keep going in a steady, organized and calm manner. I always felt that no matter how fucked up I was, I needed to keep the good things in my life because soon I will build on them the wonderful life that I had always hoped for. And that was hope, my friends.

Hope gave me the perseverance to finalize the most challenging project I had ever had at work – just a few month after my divorce. Hope gave me the courage to face off all the accusing voices, the patience and kindness to take care of my small children and make them happy and joyful when they were with me, the will to go on and pursuit happiness.

The second nice positive word is FAITH

Hope came along with Faith or better said True Faith and that was when I understood deep inside me that God is greater than any church or spiritual practice and I have a personal relationship with Him. I am His child and He loves me infinitely and unconditionally. This is my True Faith and this gave me balance, tranquility, and strength, tremendous strength, and resilience.

I kept everything in place as good as I could. Hope and Faith helped me survive and keep balance. I was a survivor, baby! And was holding on superbly and gaining such a deep respect for myself.

The third nice positive word is LOVE

However, only when I understood Love my life changed.

All these wonderful things happened in my life in only a few months:

  • Got my dream job;
  • Bought my new home;
  • Made great new friends;
  • Got into a fulfilling and happy romantic relationship;
  • And most importantly, regained my inner peace.

Maybe you think I am now happy that all are turned out so well but the true thing is that I was also happy before all of this started to materialize. So happy, fulfilled and joyful for no reason but one: Love.

More exactly Love for God. Why? How? Didn’t you say you didn’t believe in Church any more? But I also said I found my True Faith: I am God’s child and He loves me infinitely and unconditionally.

Someone told me to love myself to get rid of the guilt and remorse but I couldn’t, just couldn’t. My love was so low I could not love myself a bit, so I said to myself I want to try to love God instead because He is so great that He loves me unconditionally anyway, at least let me return the favor a little bit.

So I started to repeat in my thoughts: “I love you God”, whenever I felt remorse “I love you God”, whenever I felt miserable “I love you God”, whenever I failed on something “I love you God” and soon, but really magically soon I started to feel joy “I love you God”, started to smile “I love you God”, started to be optimistic “I love you God”, started to be positive “I love you God”, started to feel self-love “I love you God”, for no reason at all “I love you God”.

I have spent hours and hours just listening to devotional music and feeling so happy and grateful for the Love and Grace of God.

I feel grateful “I love you, God”

I feel happy “I love you, God”

I feel peaceful “I love you, God”

And then a lot of wonderful things started to happen to me. Of course, I made some actions towards achieving them but still I feel so blessed and I am conscious that my Loving Heavenly Father helps me every step of the way: 10% me, 90% God. That’s so generous of Him, isn’t it?

During my lifetime I have communicated with God using many words and prayers but I feel the closest to Him when I make it really simple and say “I love you God” and instantly feel His immense Love and Grace:

“I hear you, my child”

“I love you”

“I am with you”

Hope and faith made me a fighter, a survivor but Love healed me, transformed me and made me complete.

No matter what hardships you are struggling with, no matter how disappointed you are, just remember and repeat: LOVE – the word that will heal you, comfort you and make you complete.

If you cannot use any of the other positive words just use this one and it will be enough. LOVE is the only positive word that you’ll ever need to use in order to change your life!

God’s Grace and love be with you always!

Words that you should always have in mind so as to stay happy

Words that you should always have in mind so as to stay happyYou may have heard people say that happiness is a choice we make. This is true. You may decide to stay sad even when all things are working out for you but you can also choose to stay happy when all things aren’t as smooth running as you would like them.

So as to be happy, there is a great need for you to make being happy a habit but not an act. You should always stay positive regardless of how bad things seem to be. Always be grateful, exercise regularly, make people happy, be optimistic and stay as close as possible to the people you truly care about.

There are words that you should always have with you as they will greatly assist you to be happy and to remain happy. They are:

  1. Gratitude. These words come with great power and it can be able to change the lives of people. Usually, gratitude attracts prosperity. It is important to appreciate all that you see and to acknowledge it the way it is. When you occupy you mind with such thoughts that express the kind of gratitude you have, you will flourish in ways that you can never imagine. Gratitude is a great virtue. Appreciate the things you already have and you will be happy.
  1. Blissfulness/awesomeness/magic. Blissful can be taken to mean notable, happy, accountable, and considerable. A person who is blissful is at peace and is happy. There is never a limit to the blissful moments that you can have. If you can harness this feeling, you are indeed a lucky person. When you are blissful, you are contended. Blissfulness helps you relax and feel great joy.
  1. Forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of bitterness and grudges. You may choose to hang on to anger and feel resentful thoughts once you are hurt. However, it is always good to forgive and move on with life. We have all been hurt under different circumstances. When you forgive, you embrace joy, gratitude, hope, and peace. You are relieved of the burden and ultimately, you will be happy. Decide to let it go and stop any revenge thoughts.
  1. Contentment. This is the state of being content. When you have contentment, you have great ease of mind, and satisfaction. The pursuit of contentment is an important thread that many people use on diverse cultures. Finding the peace within is great. Go and seek happiness and while at it, limit the kind of desires that you have.
  1. Vitality/vim/health. When you talk and think of good health, you end up having a healthy body. When you are grateful for the health that you have, you will be healed of almost anything. Vitality is a state where you feel active, strong and energized. Be invigorated at all times and you will find that you are much happier in this way.
  1. Connection/caring/understanding. The act of connecting gives you a sense of belonging. Connecting with yourself, with nature, and people is a great way to show you care. Understanding things helps you appreciate everything as it is.
  1. Serenity/peace/well being. This is a state of being calm, untroubled and at peace. This is a great word that is associated with happiness. When you are at peace with all things and people around you, you end up being happy.
  1. Self-love/worth/self-care. This is where you regard your happiness and personal wellbeing. When your self-love is little, you can end up feeling depressed and unworthy. Too much of it can make it difficult to learn from own failures. Have enough self-love and boost your self-esteem.
  1. Positive. Stop all sorts of negative talk so as to reduce stress. When you think positively, you will be able to improve your physical and mental health. You should have a positive attitude regarding your life and always be optimistic that things will be great. Positive talk is also as important. The things we think about and talk about greatly affect how happy we are. Always aim at lowering stress.
  1. Blessing. This is the approval which allows you to do great things and mostly associated with God. Blessings bring happiness. Counting your blessings and appreciating how blessed you really leaves you feeling happy.
  1. Ease. Do not force things. Take things easy and all difficulty will fade away. When you face life with ease, you will be happy as difficulties will be reduced to great levels. Get freedom from pain and enjoy life’s comforts.
  1. Abundance. This can also mean unlimited, glory, awareness and prosperity. Reflect on the part of your life where you feel you are most abundant and concentrate on this. When you feel that you have a lot, you will be content and this will bring happiness. Feel yourself-abundance and abundance towards other people, life and living is strongly related to prosperity.
  1. Light. Light is hope and with hope, we get the fuel to keep on going regardless of the current situations. When you have light, you confidently expect great things and anticipate for the time when things will turn around when they aren’t going too well. Avoid despair, hopelessness and dejection.
  1. Appreciation. The word allows you to feel beautiful and let the energy flow all the way. When you understand a situation fully, you will be able to appreciate it the way it is. Appreciating life, people, and the surroundings brings admiration and happiness.
  1. Loving-kindness/wholehearted. This is consideration and tenderness towards other people. Love is one of the words that are most compelling in English language. There is a wide use of the word. When you show loving-kindness to people, you end up feeling great about yourself and this makes you happy.

The above are some of the words that give you positive feelings every day. When you use the words and reflect on them on a daily basis, you will seldom be angry and you will be at peace within and without. It is always important to remember that your life is your own and you shouldn’t live it to someone else’s expectations. Always remember what makes you happy, all that you need and want. Being happy reflects well on health and you relationships with others.
