Positive Thinking – Write Your New, Uplifting Life Story

“It is not from where you come, but where you are now in joy, and where you are headed with enlightenment.” ~Sheryl Schlameuss Berger

Negativity. Dysfunction. Insecurity. Depression. These were the themes of my family life throughout my childhood. It wasn’t a pretty picture. My father was a domineering, it’s-my-way-or-the-highway type of individual. He yelled, put everyone down, ran hot and cold. I don’t remember him ever really saying “I love you.” If anything, he loved “conditionally” — if you did what he wanted, he was okay, but challenge him — and he was incensed. He had a feud with his own mother (my grandmother) and he wouldn’t speak to her for 5 years — and she lived in the same household with us! My mother endured constant criticism from an emotionally unbalanced man which she put up with for nearly 50 years — until the day she died.

It is hard for me to even write that first paragraph, but I feel the need to share this and give you a glimpse into my past. Was all of my childhood filled with negativity — absolutely not. We had some amazingly good times, and that is almost completely due to my mother’s inherent upbeat and vibrant nature as well as her nurturing care of me. In all the photos I have of my mother, she is always wearing a smile, with no hint of the reality of her life. In my heart, I recall how vibrant she was and her love of life, despite her challenges.

There were many turning points in my life (and that is fuel for a whole other article — or book!) The bottom line is that I was eventually able to leave the negative story of my past behind and write a brand new upbeat life story.

Those who are familiar with the teachings of Abraham-Hicks know that it is a powerful transformational tool to move away from any past sorrowful stories and to begin focusing on the present with new eyes, new voice and new dreams. Tell your story in a new and improved way, and as you do that, it will unfold in a more uplifting format. Speak about it and clarify it as you would like it to be. Just UNDERSTANDING this concept can propel you forward into a better-feeling day-to-day life experience.

Many of us do tend to get caught up in the old, challenging version of our story — the hard luck kind — or we know people who do this on a consistent basis. By continuing to immerse yourself in negativity — guess what? You are just powerfully inviting more negativity into your life.

So isn’t the choice clear? Write your positive, joyful story. Is the choice easy to put into practice? Not necessarily. But is it worth it — definitely! So use any tools that you find helpful (i.e. positive affirmations, positive thinking techniques, inspirational books, audios, following uplifting teachers, studying healing techniques) to keep your attention on the present in a mindful and harmonious way. Envision the life you wish to manifest. It takes inner work and determination – but I assure you, it CAN be done.


  • It is easy to talk about my life in a positive and upbeat way.
  • I write my life story as I would like it to joyfully unfold.
  • To leave the past behind, I focus on all positive aspects in my present reality.
