Reach for the Positive Light

Reach for the Positive Light - Katy Speziale Art

I have a question for you! What perspective are you choosing to view your circumstances from, a positive or negative perspective? I would love to encourage you to reach for the positive light!

I know sometimes through situations in life we may wonder, “why is this happening to me?,” “what did I do to deserve this?,” “why do bad things happen to good people?”

I really want to challenge you to reframe your thoughts and mindset.

I’m someone who believes that everything happens for a reason. I truly believe that with every depth of my soul. When we are put through certain circumstances and challenges in life, it’s to help us grow in some way.

Whenever something happens in my life that feels challenging, I look at it from the perspective of leveling up; I look at it from a positive angle. What can I learn from this? What can I take from this situation? How can I see this in a positive light? 

I’m going to share a story of something I witnessed recently! It was a bird murder! No joke! A legit bird murder!!! 

I was looking out my back window appreciating nature as per usual. There were 3 pigeons on the roof of our garage really close to the window I was watching from. I realized that one was a baby. The Mom and Dad were cleaning the baby and showing sooo much love and affective towards it!! It was beautiful. I watched in awe. I thought about grabbing my phone to take a photo but I didn’t want to miss the moment so I stayed present in the moment and just watched. 

Then all of a sudden the Mom and Dad flew upwards. The baby tried to fly but wasn’t quite strong enough yet. I wondered, “where are they all going?” Then out of nowhere BAM, this raven swooped down and tackled the baby to the ground!!!!! It was legit like in a movie where the dramatic music starts. My jaw dropped and my heart broke as I stood there watching this baby pigeon fight for it’s life against this massive raven. The raven pinned it to the ground and held it down until the baby pigeon died. Then began to feast on it. I could no longer watch the horror and closed the curtains.

I was talking about it with my Mom after as I needed someone else to hear this story. She asked me why I didn’t open the back door to try and help. It honestly hadn’t occurred to me as I was so in shock that the situation was happening before my eyes in the first place. 

I was slightly traumatized from the situation. And all I could think was, “why on Earth did I have to witness that? That was so unnecessary for me to see, and so awful!!!” A bit later my mind remembered, okay, I believe that everything happens for a reason so what could I take from witnessing this. 

I decided to see it as a reminder to be present and appreciate every moment with the people I love most. We don’t know how much time we have here on Earth so it was a great reminder to be present. I chose to find the positive in that awful situation. Everything that happens in our lives makes us stronger and prepares us to level up and expand to better versions of ourselves. 

Even when a situation feels dark, always try to reach for, and find the positive light in it. My plant reminded me of that as I noticed it reaching one branch towards the light when it was in the dark.

You can make it a a fun challenge for yourself of how you can find the positive in every situation you go through. 

Thank you for being here! I wish you the most positive and wonderfully creative day!
