How often do you find yourself browsing your social media strems only to see complaining, confrontation and negativity? Of course we all have bad days and things that get us down, but I’d like to think that there is way more positive to be found in life. There are certain people that I love seeing updates from. People that always see the glass half full and bring a big dose of optimism to the world.
One of my favorites? Kenzie.
Kenzie is a senior in High School who has faced challenges in life that no teenage girl should have to. Well, more than anyone should have to, for that matter. Despite those challenges, Kenzie has chosen to rise above the negative and look for the positive in every single situation.
The girl has more fight in her than anyone I’ve ever know. She is constantly encouraging everyone around her, including people on the internet that she’s never actually met. Here are a few of my favorite things that have come across my news feed lately.
“If we all took a minute to rethink our thoughts, words, and actions towards OURSELVES today, I think we’d truly start to embrace and be confident in our own, unrepeatable beauty…Being YOU is beautiful!
“Happiness doesn’t come from having the best circumstances…It comes from gratefulness.”
“I want the power in my words to be a positive one.”
“The pain you feel today is the STRENGTH you feel tomorrow. Every challenge we encounter is an opportunity for growth.”
“I’m learning everyday, remembering what I think of the phrase “you can’t” and keeping in mind that good things come to those who wait.”
I can honestly say that everytime I see a post from her come across my screen, I stop and take the time to read it. I want to be as positive as she is. I want to surround myself with happiness and joy. I want to find the good in every single day I live. To go to bed at night with more positive thoughts than negative ones. And? I want to help others do that, too. Just like Kenzie.
