flock of birds flying under blue sky during daytime

Even on my darkest, most challenging days, I know that the sun WILL eventually come out.

That belief in “silver lining” moments takes me through challenging times that stress my emotions and my authentic belief in myself. I attest to the fact that each difficulty – no matter how tough, will soon be forgotten when I tap into the power of positive thinking and follow through with intentional action.

I recognize that demanding times call for resolve and courage – and I have them in abundance.

When I display strength, I can rise above the challenges. That ability turns the difficulty into success.

I avoid worrying about hard situations that confront me. In time, a solution to any uncomfortable matter always presents itself.

I use disappointing occurrences as learning experiences.

The lessons I learn prepare me to overcome future trials. Simply lamenting over disappointments rarely gives me the wisdom and strength to prevent them from happening again.

I use my strong, positive attitude to shape my future.

I maintain a mindset that brightness awaits me after even the scariest period of darkness. When I take that approach, I religiously get the result I expect.

Today, I banish worry from my life because it is worthless. I choose, instead, to believe in silver linings. My decision to take the high road of positive thinking is powerful. I know I can shape my future by redefining my expectations.
