Quote of the Day – Focus on the possibilities, not problems


Happy Hump Day you beautiful souls! I hope that you all are having productive weeks and that you’re ready to finish out the week strong! We are so close to the weekend! Can you feel it? I saw this quote the other day and immediately knew that it was what I wanted to focus this week’s PositiviTea post on. So without wasting any more of your day, let’s get into it!

When I saw this quote, believe it or not, it actually reminded me of another quote that talked about possibilities. I know I’ve mentioned before in other blog posts that my favorite movie is Love Jones. If you’ve seen the movie, you know exactly where I’m headed with this. For those of you that haven’t been fortunate enough to see this amazing film, I’ve decided to share the quote that I’m referring to.


Did you feel it? The goosebumps I mean! That quote is so real! Okay, so let me explain how this all comes together. The PositiviTea quote says, ” When you focus on problems, you’ll have more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you’ll have more opportunities.” Every day you may encounter small problems that could grow into big problems if you let them. When you give them the attention, that’s when they grow. But when you say, “Not today Satan!”, and focus on the possibilities, you are now opening up yourselves to a world of opportunities. Maybe you didn’t realize not getting that job was going to lead to more time to focus on your passion. Maybe your car breaking down was preventing you from getting stuck in traffic or was a way to tell you to slow down and breathe. Exhale!

Now how this ties in with one of my favorite Love Jones’s quote is the real eye-opener. When you’re in a relationship and you’re constantly focusing on why this isn’t working. Or you’re asking yourselves why can’t it just be like that other person’s relationship, you’re focusing on the wrong thing. Instead, you should be asking, have you run out of possibilities to keep this spark going? Have you stopped thinking of possible ways to love each other better? Sometimes, Like Darius Lovehall says, “We’ve exhausted the possibility.” If that’s the case, then the relationship has run its course, and it’s time for you to focus on new possibilities outside of your partner.

I know this was a rather lengthy post today, but thank you for hanging in there with me! I hope you all think of the possibilities today and not the problems! And don’t forget to spread some PositiviTea. 🙂
