Sometimes it takes a concentrated effort to keep a positive mindset through all the ups and downs in life. Some days are hard and discouragement creeps in so we need to have a plan of action to not let those days defeat us and get us off track. We can’t always control our circumstances but the one thing we can control is our attitude toward our circumstances. Looking at each situation with a positive outlook can lift our spirits and give us the power to overcome our circumstances.
I love the power of words to help me keep my mind focused in the right direction so I put together some lists of my top ten favorite quotes, bible verses and affirmation statements to help you (and me) to keep a positive mindset and prevent downward spiraling in the wrong direction.
