Let's Talk: Positivity

  “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.” 

-  Aristotle Onassis 

I’ll start off by being honest and keeping it 100 with you guys…I know very little about the guy in the picture above.  But I saw this quote and it stuck with me for the entirety of my day.

This is something that a lot of people I know cannot do. It’s something that I still struggle to do. Just like in my previous post I discuss how fears control us. Well folks, negative thoughts also control us.

Negativity is one of the biggest killer of dreams and hopes. I fondly remember being told to give up wanting to become a wrestler during my time in secondary school. I also fondly remember being called “a waste of resources” too. If you saw my previous post (insert link here) I listed all of the things school staff described me as.

You’re probably thinking:  “Sherlock, why do you fondly remember this?”

Well Steemers it’s quite simple.

I found the light in their ignorance.

I turned their negative energy into fuel and used it to ignite my passion.

Since the start of 2016 I’ve been on fire! The flame has dipped but I have never been doused. Why? Because I know that through the hard times there is a lesson to be learned.

I injured my knee earlier this year and the first thing I did was become miserable.

I harked on and on about how I miss being in a ring.

Then it hit me like a hurricane! I had the opportunity to heal and the opportunity to give my time to writing.

Now I’m here on Steemit having the time of my life.

Now I have an awesome hobby which I am truly grateful for. 

I found the light through the darkness.

And I hope you guys can too (: 

Keep moving forward!

I’ll write a part two somewhere down the line, because there’s a lot more I want to expand upon.

 Deuces.
