Life is like a flowing river in which at times it is hard to keep afloat on. With all the rocks, beaver damns and other obstacles in your way; sometimes you just want to let go and drown into the mist of it all. Along with everything else in life, life goes on as well and there is always change ahead. Life is like a rushing stream that runs through the Berkshires with its up and downs, smooth and rough- but at the end of the day the water is all leading to the same place. At the end of the day- there is no need to worry- as long as you stay on course in the direction you would like to go in like the way a river does.
“Life is What you Make it”- Couldn’t be more true of a quote and it will stand the test of time because at times how you live life reflects your perspective towards life. Some who live life full of negativity energy, talking down on someone else and always looking at the negative aspects in life- actually don’t bring the ones around them down- but they bring themselves down. With a negative mindscape, how are you able to think clearly? With negative energy towards others, how do you focus on yourself? With negativity in general, what do you think it does to your health? Positive thinking has been mentioned in many articles to have health benefits such as:
– Increased life span
– Lower rates of depression
– Lower levels of distress
– Greater Resistance to the Common Cold
– Better Psychological and Physical well-being
– Reduced risk of Cardiovascular Disease
– Better coping Skills during Hardships and Time of Stress

It is the little things you do in life that amount up to bigger results and consequences at the end of the day. (Will have a post about our own personal experience using positive thinking during hardship).
