Trouble really is a friend.
It follows me everywhere.
I can't run from it.
I can't hide from it.
When I say trouble I mean things or people that are troubling.
People always seem to think I'm sociable because I'm nice.
Yes, I'm nice. I'm polite. I'm friendly. But that doesn't mean I want to be around people all the time.
Yay to being an introvert.
I truly do believe that there are more good people than there are bad ones.
Thing is, good people usually carry about their day in humility and are engrossed in more beneficial things. Bad people are just loud (or sneaky) and poke about people's businesses.
Yes, there ARE some amazing people out there.
But it only takes ONE person to ruin your day.
It only takes one person to say something that kills your mood and make you lose faith in humanity.
So that's where THIS comes in handy:
A positivity jar inspired by my friend, Frances.
Everyday, my housemates and I write the good things that took place in our day.
To our surprise, many good things DO happen to us everyday.
Good food, good company, a roof to shelter us from England's harsh winds, a call from our loving parents, a good remark from a lecturer... list goes on.
Nothing is too small to be considered a good thing.
Every month the jar will be emptied and we'll reflect on all the things that we've been blessed with.
And it's amazing to see how lucky we actually are. In fact, at times it's so difficult to list out all the good things we're blessed with in a day because there are just too many!
I can't thank God enough for every blessing.
P.S: I knew the empty jars we had lying around the kitchen would come in handy.
