I see the glass as half full not half empty.

I am a positive optimistic person. My outlook is positive. People need to live with an expectation that good things are going to happen to them. When I think of mental health I know what affects it. I now focus on God and spirituality all of the time. I pray and give thanks to God even in hard times. I know God is there. I think of all of the people in my life that I know God placed in my life that give me encouragement and helped me along the way. I know it can be hard to see yourself as others see you. I focus more on God-consciousness and helping my family. I remember people that were supportive of me. I like to be able to remind them that I like and appreciate them too. My life changed when I discovered peace in the midst of chaos. This is the world we live in it’s a very chaotic world but I have a peace and calm that comes directly from God to me. I discovered that I wasn’t alone and God had been walking with me all this time. Sometimes I think of the deep thoughts I have and I remember someone telling me I was an old soul.
