staying positive

Since I have been sick with kidney failure, it has been vital to my well being to stay positive. I have been asked a lot how I cope with such a catastrophic thing happening in my life. This doesn’t have to just be about catastrophic events in your life, it’s generally a good idea to try and maintain a positive attitude in everyday life, and this is something I strive for.

I think all too often the focus for many people first is to look at the negative in a situation. But I feel by doing that you tend to stay stuck in the negative mindset. If you look for the positive you will find more positive things that come out of any situation. In my case, the people I have met not just the doctors, nurses and other caregivers but the patients. I feel I have learned so much from the people who have done this before me and even the new faces that I have seen since I’ve started. If you really think about it, we have so much to learn from other people.

I honestly believe that the solution to staying positive during a difficult situation is by talking now I understand, that not all personalities are talkers like I am but try to find something that suits your personality if you prefer journaling do that or art just as examples. The point is, stick with something you enjoy.

People who struggle to stay positive in their own life I have some tips: When things get hard look for the positive things in a negative situation. If you look for positive things you rarely have time to dwell on the negative.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    My friend who had the stroke was always very positive even before he had the stroke so I think that helped him adjust quickly. Yes we do have so much to learn. I see now as an adult how little I actually know and that my greatest lessons come from the connections I make with others.
