A little bit goes a long way

“The light of a single star tinges the mountains of many regions.”-Chinese Maxim

Sorry about being late on this week’s quote, but it’s just been quite an eventful, busy day for me. In any case, this week’s quote is a little bit different from the rest of them, but nevertheless I think a fitting one.

I think at one point we’ve all been in that place where everything seems to be falling apart all at the same time when you can’t catch a single break. It feels like things keep perpetually spinning out of control with no hope of slowing down. You feel helpless and trapped without a way out. When everything around you seems to be going wrong it’s extremely easy to go with the flow and view things negatively yourself. Sadly that negativity does little to remedy the situation and only aids you in digging yourself a bigger hole.

In that moment at that instance, is it easy to see anything but negativity all around? Absolutely not. However, being able to find a little bit of positivity even when you doubt it’s existence has its benefits. The light from one single star might be enough to illuminate a path for you and help you stay the course until the tide turns for the better. Even if it in the smallest of ways, finding a tiny ounce of positivity can help fight the negative. It isn’t easy, but things have a funny way of working themselves out and your luck will change.

Finding positivity ourselves is often easier said then done. Most times another set of eyes can see the positive and the good that we can’t. Take the time to take a deep breath and focus on dealing with things one at a time. You are capable of dealing with whatever life throws at you.

Sticking with the theme of this quote, here’s my help to find your positivity despite how things might be going for you. Borrowed from one of the books I am reading Words That Shine Like Stars edited by Douglas Pagels.
