9 Random Positive Thoughts For the Day
Looking for a few reasons to be happy right now? Here are a few random positive thoughts for the day!
1. Many things are taken care of without us having to do anything.
Every day the sun comes up and the world gets to work without you or I having to do anything. Even when we take a day off, the world keeps working. The universe handles a lot of things for us that we don’t have to worry about, but that support us and keep us alive.
2. 20 years from now, there will be a bunch of exciting new things in the world that we haven’t even imagined yet.
One thing about humans is that we are always solving problems and creating new things. We never really settle and we always want more, and this why we are magnificent creators.
Back at the dawn of civilization, who ever would have guessed that today we’d have the internet or the ability to travel around the world? We’ve created some amazing things, and there’s a lot more coming to look forward to.
3. There are a lot of people out there who care and make a difference.
Some of these people have chosen helping careers (like nurses, teachers and firefighters) and others just make a difference in their everyday actions (like the grandparent who goes to all of the little league games, or the good friend who would give you the shirt off her back).
We’re all very fortunate that there are so many wonderful people out there who are helping to make this world a better place. It’s nice to know there are people in the world who looking out for us, even if we don’t know them by name.
4. Sometimes the biggest problems and obstacles we face end up being the best things that could have happened to us.
For example, sometimes getting fired ends up putting you on the path to your dream job. Sometimes the horrible breakup leads you directly to your soulmate. Even in the worst times it’s comforting to know that what’s happening right now just might end up being a blessing in disguise.
5. You could be surprised with something phenomenal at anytime.
You never know when you are going to have a spectacular, magical experience, and it’s fun to think that it might be just around the corner. Today might be the day you win the lottery, come up with a million dollar idea or meet your new best friend! You just never know.
6. We have the ability to make the people around us smile and be a little happier.
It’s nice to know that we can uplift others, and others can uplift us. Energy is contagious, which means we have the ability to spread good vibes everywhere we go. Sometimes it’s fun just to see if you can make someone else smile or laugh.
7. There’s never been as much knowledge, technology or convenience as there is right now at this place in time.
We are among the most blessed people in all of human history. Can you even imagine living hundreds of years ago?
There was a time when you had to worry about getting the plague, and the average life expectancy was around 30 years old. There was a time where there were no human rights for anyone and it was considered normal to abuse women, children or anyone who wasn’t in the ruling class. There was a time without running water or electricity, and there was a time when surgery was done without anesthetic.
Sure, things could aways be better, but through the eyes of people far back in history, we are probably living a dream come true!
8. Each of us is important and everything we do affects everyone else.
For example, if you were to leave the house one minute earlier, you would be sitting at different traffic lights on your way to work, run into different people during the day, and have an entirely different experience than if you were to leave exactly on time.
Not only would your day be different, but everyone you encountered (or didn’t encounter) would have an entirely different day as well. Your choice to leave one minute earlier would have a chain reaction that radiated out into the universe as the people you interacted with would then go on to interact with others differently. What you do has an infinite ripple effect.
Because of this, who we are and what we do has a tremendous impact on the universe. Every moment of every day our actions affect everything else, and this means that you are important and what you do is very significant. Your choices are powerful, and they shape the rest of existence!
9. Every time we choose positive thoughts, we create a more positive future!
Chances are if you are reading this, you already know that positive thoughts create a positive life. It’s exciting to know that if you are intentionally choosing positive thoughts, you have an awesome future ahead of you!
