Energy is contagious; positive and negative alike.
We all know it's pretty easy to get stuck in a bit of a negative rut. Be it through our own thinking or circumstances thrust upon us.
Let's not forget we can't help but absorb the comments we hear about the choices we make on daily basis - that can be tough, we're all human and we're all trying to get by.
A few years ago, I wouldn't have been able to see the positives that come with the negatives. Now I'm older, I've learnt there's a balance with everything.
- I missed a lot of school & left early with few qualifications vs. I'm working somewhere I love and saving to travel.
I'm lucky enough to be working somewhere that continues to help me grow and educates me on a daily basis - that's something I wouldn't trade. And the fact it's aiding me in saving to travel is a bonus.
- My great Nana passed away vs. Someone gained a new, loved home.
- My brother lives over 5,000+ miles away vs. He's doing what he loves.
We learn some of our biggest lessons through our struggles and there's little that can replace those individual experiences. It's the perspective we adopt that alters what we learn.
