Positive Thinking!!!! pt. 1

If you can read these words, you can read (words) and therefore clearly have had an education. The simple act of remembering and feeling grateful for this is an example of positive thinking! If you’re not sitting on your chair crying so much right now (the tears streaming down, they’re falling… falling), well that’s something positive too! And if you’re not in a war or something else bad, then that is also positive (positive thinking)! Finally, if you aren’t engaged in an ongoing feud with some crappy new cat who won’t love you properly in the right ways all the time, then maybe could you try to think positively about that? It’s certainly clear that your life is better than mine right now. I should say at this point that I really do have it very, very tough.

So this post is about positive thinking. Positive thinking means very carefully being positive. It’s the opposite of negative thinking, negativity, and bad.

“Wait, so what is all this about ‘negative thinking’ Pattie?”

Negative thinking is focusing on what you don’t have (money, fame, cars, slippers, beautiful women, ok hair and garlic), as well as on the bad stuff you do have (maybe huge anxieties, crippling waves of the blues, possibly actual depression, lasting boredom, stress that paralyses you daily, and certainly: a life-long sense of dread).

s

There is no doubt a lot to feel low about in this world.

s

The fortunate few are the ones who haven’t actually noticed this yet. They are genuinely living without seeing the truth, and they are the dweebs already think positively. The rest of the world are called: all the other people.

s

“So how do I know which type of person I am?”

c

Here’s a little questionnaire to help you decide! Simply answer yes or no to the questions below, and find out once and for all if you are a positive or a negative person! :) :) :) :) :)

v

  1. Are you very positive (a positive person)?
  2. Do other people think you’re a positive person?
  3. Do you think you’re a positive person?
  4. Do you not mainly think negatively?
  5. Are you not a negative man? Or a negative woman?
  6. Are you usually interpreting the world positively?
  7. Do you tend to interpret the world positively (some of these questions are the same questions)

v
If you mainly answered yes: then congratulations and get lost!

If you mainly answered no, then you are dark-minded, negative and probably sad.

I am very sorry for you, and I hope you’re ok these next few days before I do my next post, in which I will solve all your problems for you, for good, for now.

s
Chin up everyone!

And lots of love, Pattie xxxx

Affirmations

Today we’re talking about affirmations.

“Affirmations Pattie? Sounds a bit like a statement asserting something without proof

NOPE. That’s allegations. We’re talking about affirmations.

“Oh! Affirmations! Sounds like something else! Maybe something kind of liquidy like a soup?”.

NOPE. That’s soup. Or alternatively a stew or a kind of juice? It’s not clear. Besides, we’re talking about affirmations.

*sigh*.

h
Affirmations are declarations that something is true, and if they’re about you, they can have a huge impact on your self-esteem. Ever thought back on something critical that someone once said to you as a child, and realised it’s affected the way you see yourself now? “Pattie you are always hanging around and hiding, you are a snoopy, snoopy child”? Or perhaps even: “Pattie your legs are too weak, like bad arms”. I’m not saying these have had an effect on me – actually I don’t even remember them being said at all, and I’ve never even heard them before in my whole life – but hypothetically they could well have done. To a huge extent.

v

But don’t go round cutting off everyone from your formative years (unless you want to, personally I can really recommend it). Those people are not the only ones directing negative affirmations your way! We’re all guilty of them too. Ever told yourself off? Or criticised yourself harshly? Ever thought: “Hmm, I don’t think I like myself very much! I am messy, I’m untidy, and I’m sick of squishing so much stuff in my kitchen underfoot!”. These are also examples of negative affirmations. The more you repeat them, you guessed it: the more you will believe them to be true.

v

Fortunately, there’s a Pattie Solution in the form of Positive Affirmations! :) :) :) Positive affirmations are like negative ones but backwards! And less negative. If we create some and repeat them to ourselves, they will affect all areas of our lives positively. AND FOREVER! :) :) Self-perception! Self esteem! Careers! Relationships! Personality! Cats! Dreams and goals! Friendships! Dreams! Cats and kittens! Other things!

v

So why not make some positive affirmations of your own? . Change your whole entire life in every respect for the better today! All you have to do is make sure your affirmations are: in the present tense, positive, personal, specific, and nothing to do with death, fear of dying or knowing that we’re all essentially alone.

To help you out, here are some examples of affirmations I’ve found online on the internet’s websites, or made up myself. Repeat them to yourself aloud, or print them out and read them regularly/all the time:

  1. I like myself so much!
  2. I am unique and very special
  3. I am perfectly me/perfectly Pattie
  4. I am loving towards my pets and I can see trust and the sweetest infatuation in their eyes
  5. I am taller than many “little people” and some children
  6. I am powerful, I am the boss, I am Pattie
  7. I am persistent and good at always getting my way (the best way)
  8. People learn from me as I know a lot
  9. I have hair bigger than many huge bags
  10. The universe loves me :) , it’s my mate

To positivity and Pattie ! xxx :) :)

Happiness (By Pattie Brewster)

Life’s ok I guess

But sometimes it can be REALLY good! Like if you find something on the street that you weren’t even looking for! Or if you hold your breath for ages and feel the tingles everywhere :)

I’ve been thinking about happiness a bit lately. And so I’m going to do one of my lists about it… (read this  list.)

Now everyone’s different (and everyone says I’m really different :) Maybe the differentist!), but this list is factual, and I’ve read over it twice, so don’t worry about it not being True or Real.

Ok Pattie’s List for true happiness, starting from now…

Don’ts

  1. Don’t have arguments. If someone’s being cr*p (crap), just cut them out of your lift FOR GOOD. However small the offense, you won’t regret the space and increase in free time (or CAT TIME). if you’re still angry, make a doll of them and get cracking with pins!
  2. Don’t let yourself get too cold before you stick your sweater on, or close the front door. Pretty cold is fun, really cold is not.
  3. Don’t go out without looking in the mirror first (specially when you’ve been up to stuff at home)
  4. Don’t tread on something fragile, just to hear the noise when it cracks. It may break
  5. Don’t do the weirdest stuff out loud!!!

Dos

  1. Do do cool stuff
  2. Do try and be fun (“WOAH HERE WE GO!!”)
  3. Do say something catchy and good every time you walk into a room with other people in it
  4. Do make that switch from VHS to DVD (probably worth it, trust me)
  5. Do find something (anything) you can cuddle, if you need to. Some will!

That’s all. Only 10 things! I thought: at least a dozen, Pattie (when I was about to start). If you have anymore leave a comment about it :)

What are your tips for happiness? I’ve done the classic 10, but there may be a couple I’ve missed out on…
