Staying positive in today’s society can be hard, that’s why you constantly have to surround yourself with things that make you happy.
One of the most influential things in my life is my faith. There is nothing that keeps me more positive than God’s word and being around like-minded people.
“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
– Proverbs 17:22 (ESV)
Family is everything to me. No matter how quirky or hard-headed they may be, I can always count on them to keep my spirits high when things go wrong.
“The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing.”
Sports have been one of the biggest parts of my life. I played sports nonstop from the time I was three until I graduated high school. I felt my best when I was involved in some form of activity, because it seemed like you always had someone right there by your side encouraging you and keeping your spirits up. Some of my most favorite memories are from when I played sports. Whether I was with a large group of people, with a single person or just myself, I was constantly kept uplifted and motivated.
“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” – Babe Ruth
