How to be Positive When Faced With Negative Situations

Life is what you make of it, you are where you are in life because of the choices you have made.  When you are faced with a negative situation you have two choices, to look at it negatively or to be optimistic and make it a positive situation.  Believe me I realize going through life with a positive outlook can be tough but it definitely  will benefit you and bring you happiness.  In this article I will discuss ways to stay positive in negative situations.  
Being happy  is a choice- Life can be tough but when you are down you must look up!  When you are faced with negative situations you can either let it drag you down or rise above it.  When given a bad situation you must look for anything positive and make a plan to make it a positive situation.
 Tough times don’t last!  Tough people do! -Gregory Peck-  This is a quote I often think of when I am feeling down.  When you are feeling down you need to realize this too shall pass.  Look at it this way , difficult situations will only make you a stronger person and will allow you to handle future situations.  
You can handle it! –  Life will not give you more than you can handle.  When you feel overwhelmed in life you must realize you can handle it.  It may be hard to see at the time but you will get through it.  A good question to ask yourself when you feel you can not go on is “Will this matter in a year?”  More than likely the answer is no!
 Being positive in a negative situation is not easy, it is something you have to work at.  Staying positive is something you have to consciously  do everyday.  A  good way  to realize there is positive things in your life is to start a gratitude journal.  Write in your journal as much as possible, write all the things that make you happy and all the things you are thankful for.  Once you adopt an optimistic lifestyle you will see how much easier life can be and you will finally  see clearly  all of the positive things you could not see before.  There is a positive in every negative situation!
