What's with positive people?

To answer that, let me ask you a question: If you wanted to learn how to ride a bike, you’d take the steps to learn right?

You’d practice, you’d fall, you’d make mistakes. But those mistakes don’t invalidate the process of you learning how to ride a bike, do they?

It's easier to roll downhill

As a matter of fact, it’s all the falls, scrapes, and the bruises, and the getting back up – and getting back on again – that actually allows you to ultimately achieve the goal of riding a bike.

Now let’s apply that little analogy across to positivity. But before I do, I want to explain that we – as human creatures – tend to lean towards the negative, because it’s ‘easier to roll downhill’.

That’s not to say that our ‘uh-oh’ feelers that we use aren’t valuable, of course they are! They ensure we don’t make mistakes or bad decisions. However, if we follow that negativity too far down the rabbit hole, we end up working against ourselves.

We never get back off the ground. We never shake off the mistakes and learn how to ride that bike. It’s when we follow those negative thoughts down the rabbit hole that we find that we can’t evolve into who we’re truly meant to be. We can’t learn from our mistakes because we’re too busy being fearful, we’re too busy with the scarcity mentality, we’re too busy being jealous of others.

So if you find yourself in that rabbit warren of negativity, things just aren’t working out – over and over again – or bad things seem to always happen to you. Or you can’t clearly see the path you’re meant to go or just can’t seem to get to that vision in your dreams…

Positivity is like riding a bike

I’m going to ask you a question… If you wanted to learn how to ride a bike, then fell off, would you just top? Or would you try again?

You’d try again – of course!

So, positivity is like riding a bike! If you fall off, you just have to get back on again. And keep practicing.

I want to be clear though, being positive – and practicing being positive – isn’t about lying to yourself. It’s not about ‘pretending’ there isn’t something really horrible just around the corner. It’s about acknowledging – ‘Yes, I know – I fell off the bike. I made a mistake, I bumped my knee” but then saying, “You know what, I’m going to learn from it, I’m going to do something different. I’m going to take another way. I’m going to get back up on my bike and try again

So to answer the question, “Are positive people just fooling themselves?” My answer is a big, resounding – no.

The positive people of this world are not fooling themselves, they’re not lying to themselves. What are they doing? They’re just getting back up on that bike again, because they know if they don’t – they’ll never be able to learn so they can ultimately ride to their freedom.

One last time – are you willing to get back up and get on that bike again?

No matter where you are in this world, I hope you keep moving forward so you can shine that light I know is within you. #biglove

  1. Thanks Melissa. It is good to hear you again. I totally agree with you. We should acknowledge our mistakes to grow and should remain positive.

  2. Love this topic. Just had this conversation with a friend not but a few days ago.. I had mentioned that sometimes I felt like I was faking my world always trying to be upbeat and moving forward… by the end of the conversation we both came to the understanding that it wasn’t so much about faking it, but going through experiences and learning and leaving little seeds that other folks who saw me going through these things and how I reacted that maybe they would take away something even if I never saw them again, and blosome and grow and not go down the rabbit hole (so to speak) 😀

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by Dale and am so glad this was timely for you! I love the conclusion you came to – and am ever so grateful for you shining your light! Keep planting those seeds so we have a beautiful spring 🙂 #biglove

  3. Melissa, thanks for sharing. I feel so much love and gratefulness. You are the person that step in my life to take my hand and to show me my heart way – Reiki. Love You. We are all connected and I feel You very close despite the fact we are physically located so far 🙂

  5. Melissa your have a wonderful thought process and an interesting concept to give. Keep up the good work and stay safe. We need to trust out own intuition no matter what is happening and rise from within. It can be done.

    You heard me !! . Thank you 💐
    You are always such a beautiful kind-hearted healer.I am so lucky to get in touch with you in my life.😍.

  7. Thank you Melissa! Today has been terrifying. Doctor Fauci a leading disease specialist in the US said; if numbers continue like they have been America will see 100,000 new cases of Covid 19 daily. Trying to stay safe amidst people who are not taking it seriously has been scary. I stay positive by working, giving my talent. Thanks for your positive videos. It was encouraging. As well Thank you for the attunement. You said; you saw a nome in my head, that is strange and freaky, but I keep telling myself it is there to help me. I fell last year. My head hit a tree. I love trees, but not that one. 😂 It has been a long road to recovery, Reiki helps. I got my Reiki level 1 years ago in Spain. I couldn’t afford to do the other two classes. I enjoyed your class and I am happy to have completed the levels. I recently lost a lady I used to help look after, her daughter had a medium meeting. She said; I was a healer in a past life she encouraged me to finish the Reiki levels. She said; Angel Gabriel was communicating to me. Blessings on you, and keep safe. 💞

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by Susan and for sharing your concerns and your journey, bless you! It is a difficult time for all, but we must ‘get back up on our bikes again’ – stay focused on love & light and stay safe – we are in this together – and we will shine brighter for it. Take care of yourself sweet friend, big love ❤️
