I belong to the group of people that has chosen a positive outlook on life. I even believe that we create our own reality, and that we in all ways need to take our creative powers seriously.
Nothing is random in my world, and nothing comes out of the blue. There's meaning even in the meaningless, and all is well, also when it doesn't feel well or in no way looks well.
I cried the first time I heard Louise Hay say the words: All is well. Because I didn't feel it at that time in my life, and because I got in contact with the deep desire that I one day would be able to feel the wisdom deep in my cells.
That wish is now a reality. Today I live with the clear knowing that all is well. The disillusionment has been replaced with a trust in myself and life in general.
Sometimes my view on life brings up a lot of anger in some people, I have been called many things on that account: dumb, unloving, naive, cruel, anal, ruthless...
I get it -- that some people are only able to feel right by making others wrong. I have always thought that it's an unpractical and not very loving way to live your life, but we all do the things that work best for us.
I feel that there's deep love and great safety when we take 100 percent responsibility. I don't expect everyone else to do the same. And I would never give people advice if they hadn't asked for it. I concentrate on thriving and lifting those who contact me for help.
A positive view on life is all about nurturing the essences we want active. It's okay for life to hurt, and it's very well when things feel like crap, as long as we take responsibility and course correct when things are not the way we would like them to be.
The suffering can become enormous if we look at ourselves and others as victims. And from there not much can be changed, so that idea is not something I'll ever endorse. The point must be that each one of us adapts the view on life that will lead to most nurturing.
