SIMPLE RULES TO HAVE A POSITIVE LIFE.

I don’t know how to start this but first of all, I ought to write this one because I just want to. Two days ago, I went online on my Twitter fan account (you know, fan girl stuffs) and I opened my direct messages. While I was checking it, I saw a message from a mutual of mine whom I really don’t talk to.

She said, “Hi Mary! I just you to know that your tweets always makes me smile because you’re so positive. Sorry for feeling close, that’s all!!” 💗

I was so speechless when I’ve read her message. I mean, I didn’t expect that someone would message and tell me that I always made him/her smile by my tweets.

And so I’m here to tell you some of my simple rules you may need in your daily life. 😊

  1. If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.
    Try stepping out of your comfort zone, you wouldn’t lose anything if you would. You’ll also be able to discover many things about yourself that you aren’t fond of doing or anything that might interest you.
  2. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no.
    There’s nothing wrong if you would ask someone about a certain thing. Whenever you’re curious, just ask. Besides it will help you more to do the right thing and to strive harder.
  3. If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it.
    Don’t let your dreams stay as just what it is. Dare to chase it. Take risks if you really need to. Explore everything and anything. If you really want it, then go for it!
  4. Always grab the opportunity when it comes to reality.
    For example, you want to be a writer and there’s this local newspaper who needs aspiring writers for their paper and has an open call, try it. Prepare your portfolio and yourself. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t accepted, what matters is that you were able to try it. Don’t get to the point that you’re going to regret because you haven’t tried anything. You never know when will it happen again, so while it’s happening now, do your thing.
  5. Everything happens for a reason.
    Never regret all the things you’ve done before. Everything happens for a reason, just remember that. If you weren’t able to do what you’re supposed to do before, then maybe today is the right time for you to do it.
  6. Know your major goals in life.
    Set your goals you want to achieve while living a happy life. Take note of all the things you want to do or you want to achieve ever since you were a kid. It doesn’t matter what it is, what matters is you’re going to achieve it soon. Make a bucket list of ALL the things you want to do, happen or achieve.
  7. If you want to learn a new language or new things, try it!
    Try everything that makes you happy. If you want to learn a new language and you can’t afford or you don’t want to study in a language school, find ways. There’s Google, search everything you can. Don’t be afraid to try anything you want, it’s for your own benefit too.
  8. Everyday is a new beginning.
    Forget what happened yesterday or the other day. It will pass by. Its your chance to make it right. Everyday is an adventure for you and for others. Do something good everyday.
  9. Never compare yourself to others.
    Each one of us is unique in our own ways. We are different with each other. Never ever compare yourself to others just because you can’t do what they can do. Remember that you can do it too, as long as you’ll believe in yourself that you can do it.
  10. Be happy. Prioritize yourself than anything else.
    Stay healthy and be happy. Always believe in yourself that you can do it. At the end of the day, you yourself is the only one who you can trust. Love yourself even more.
  11. Pray.
    It works all the time. Don’t doubt Him just because your wish/es hasn’t happened or granted yet. I tell you, it will happen in the right time. You don’t need to rush things just because you want to, be patient. Do your best and God will do the rest.

When I was just a kid, being positive isn’t really my thing. But when I’ve reached my teenage life, I realized that you’ll be able to be motivated if you’re going to be positive. Even if things went wrong before and I’ve doubted myself for all the reasons that happened to me, it didn’t become a barrier for me to stop being an optimistic person.

I hope those who’ll read this would never stop believing in themselves. Just because you haven’t reached your goals, you’re going to give up. No, you shouldn’t. Don’t listen to those people who’s saying you can’t do it and you’re just wasting your time. Prove them that no matter what happens, YOU CAN DO IT. I believe in you, so you should believe in yourself too. 💓

Don’t degrade yourself just because you don’t know how to do this or that. You’re living because you have and need to. You should aim high. Never underestimate yourself just because you lose. Whatever it takes, just remember to do your best-est every time. ✨

“Open their eyes and have no fear.” – No Fear, Somewhere Over My Head EP

This line is what I really love from Greyson Chance‘s No Fear from SOMH EP. Though the song talks about opening yourselves from love, I just want to emphasized that the line also applies to our own selves. Don’t let yourself be covered up with your own fears. If you let your weaknesses to surround your goals, you can’t achieve them. Instead, use your weaknesses to build a strong foundation of strength for yourself. 😊

A daily reminder that you are loved by everyone. If anyone hates you,  don’t stoop down on their level. Chin up, smile on your enemies, keep moving forward. Don’t stop until you’re proud of yourself. Believe in the person you want to be in the future. Do the things that your heart desires even if people don’t want them for you. You’re doing it for yourself, not for them. You can’t please everyone. As what Dr. Seuss says, “You have to be odd to be number one.” 

Don’t wait for things to happen, instead DO THEM NOW so it can happen.

You are loved, you are strong, you are beautiful. You can do it, I believe in you. 💝
