Things I Love That Add Positivity To My Life

When you're feeling happy that’s a feeling that you're choosing to feel, nobody makes you feel a type of way. People can help spread happiness, but it’s on you to choose it. Nobody makes you feel angry; they can do something that may cause you to feel angry, but ultimately that’s a feeling you choose to feel in the moment. In these times of anger, happiness or anything in between, you can choose to focus your time on what helps you stay positive and confident. This is what helps me.  

YouTube Role Models 

I don’t know about you, but I love watching YouTube vloggers because I’m so intrigued about how others choose to live their life. I love learning from people I admire. 8Passengers is a family youtube channel vlog that I have been watching for over five years. They are so real, and remind me to always stay true to myself. The parents Ruby and Kevin never allow their children to act ungrateful. I have had moments where I felt ungrateful and thought about the advice they have given to their children. Their kids are all different ages which allows the viewers to relate to the vlogs even more! They help me choose to feel positive! 

The Color Pink  

Now you may think "how can a color help you feel positive and confident?”

Pink makes me smile! When I wear pink I feel brighter! When you love something it’s likely it will help you feel good about yourself. I have always loved pink! My room is filled with pink. It gives me positive vibes! Think about your favorite color and why you love it, when you see it or wear an outfit of your favorite color, notice how you feel!  

Makeup Enhances Your Beauty 

Oftentimes people may view makeup as a cover up or hiding from one’s real self. Makeup isn’t about changing yourself. If you can help make yourself look better, why wouldn’t you? Loving yourself with or without makeup is definitely important.

Makeup allows people to be creative and explore different looks! I have loved makeup and in the recent few years I have become even more passionate about it! I love applying colorful eye shadow to my eye lids and pretty pink blush to give myself a soft look! I love applying foundation when I break out. Putting too much makeup on can look really awful, but a good amount will look great! Makeup allows me to feel confident and beautiful.

Remember, makeup enhances the beauty you already have! Here is one of my favorite makeup artists with a natural look for you to try along with a natural eyeshadow palette

Animals Are Everything  

Most everyone loves animals. Animals are almost always kind and just want love. They are not negative and put smiles on people’s faces because of their adorable looks and personalities. Everybody deserves love and animals give that! Animals have always been there for me through ups and downs. I have never been let down by my dogs and my cat. The saying a dog and cat is a (girl’s) best friend is spot on! If you can’t have a dog or cat maybe think about getting a smaller animal! 

(Read my past article for advice on smaller animals to adopt!)

Happiness can come from a variety of things! Find the things that bring positive vibes to your life and level up your confidence. After all, happiness is the main feeling everyone wants to feel.

Find your happiness!
