Isn’t it so easy to get caught up in all the negativity of life sometimes? And what’s even easier than letting yourself get caught up in all the negativity in today’s world is using negativity to fuel your relationships.
That’s where the best quotes and poems by Instagram poet, writer and transformational coach, Jo Boniszewski, come in.
We’re all guilty of being too negative at time, including me. It’s so easy to just complain about the bad things and totally overlook the good things.
But why do we do these things to ourselves? Is it really so bad to look on the bright side of things? No, it’s not! And sometimes, changing our outlook on life to be more positive IS easy, we just need a little inspiration.
Reading Jo Boniszewski’s poems feels like you’ve been given a completely new mindset about life and love; that no matter what happens. There is always a way to turn around and find your happiness again.
And if you think that people are crazy when they say that kindness and happiness are contagious, then maybe you’re the crazy one because reading Jo’s poetry makes me believe that it is.
Love is beautiful and life is full of potential, and while love might not last and life gets difficult and scary, always, always see the world with those rose-colored glasses on and live it with a full heart.
Life is short; tomorrow is a new day, so let yourself be happy and stop complaining.
Go out and get what you want instead of choosing to focus on the negativity because you’re worth SO much more than a just a little happiness.
1. Appreciate the world around you.
“The sky was the color of hard crimson, dripping down a canvas, the moon splashed silver across red. Her soothing balm healing my soul in swathes of calmness, I breathe in her tides and let my body be washed ashore, lying in the sands of eternity.” – Jo Boniszewski
2. Tell yourself that life is good and believe it.
“With a burst of joy, my heels sprout wings, smile dancing. My heart sings like a bird caged, set free to soar, senses heightened like never before. Life. Is. Good.” – Jo Boniszewski
3. Get comfortable with your fears and use them to your advantage.
“The time has come to shed this skin. Its cloying inconvenience doesn’t fit me anymore. My new attire strikes color, shine, shadow, makes noise, and may put your teeth on edge. Tough sh–. Get used to it. I’m inviting you to step into your fear and dance with life.” – Jo Boniszewski
4. Treat each new day as a fresh start.
“Lilac anemone, paper petals, turning tentatively to face a pale sun opening to reveal a lightness of being, a flash of gold, a fresh resilience, contented silence, the dawn of a new day.” – Jo Boniszewski
5. Finding true love is like listening to your favorite song over and over.
“Your fingers caress my heart strings, shaping a silent sonnet in notes of love. Transcending space and time, bathing the ether in perfect harmony.” – Jo Boniszewski
6. Look on your past with fondness rather than with hatred.
“The gap that’s opened I’m filling with fairy dust, hues of the heart and a joy for life what was… I invite to exit right quietly, in shades of black and white.” – Jo Boniszewski
7. You are perfect.
“You are perfect. An exquisitely fine work of art, labor of love, suspended in silence. Bejeweled, trembling, kissed by a breeze, mesmerized by your beauty. You await in silence, beckoning me to a silken-wrapped slumber.” – Jo Boniszewski
8. Being one with the earth is like being full of love and inspiration.
“I am the flame, electric blue, lightening, razor-like, renewing my spirit. Heart beating in time to the earth’s rhythm and expanse of black ink sky, overreaching eternal. My fingertips spark with seeds of creation, fireworks coloring canvas, beckoned by this light that lifts me.” – Jo Boniszewski
9. I can be my best AND be a beast.
“You bring out the be(a)st in me. Polarized tension, a raw slash of claw, swathed softly in love. A peace of my mind in tumultuous chaotic razor-sharp clarity, impulsive wit to wisdom, mixing addictive shots of cocktail emotions in a full-spectrum experience.” – Jo Boniszewski
10. Life might hurt, but it makes you feel alive.
“If it matters, it will hurt like knives or wrap and lift you in the most immeasurable joy. Or both. One thing is certain, you will feel intensely alive.” –Jo Boniszewski
