Sunshine and Shades

I spent one morning with my friend Christina Zhou at River Oaks District. She is the founder and CEO of JECK US Investments, Inc., a commercial property investment, development company, and the founder and president of Paramount First Investment LLC., a hospitality properties and management company. She is also a devoted wife, mother, friend and humble community supporter. One of the most awesome things about Christina: she is always positive. She is a ray of sunshine in clear skies or cloudy weather. Her positive nature is contagious, and she makes everyone around her happy. We all need a friend like Christina.

Being positive is a choice. You can choose your attitude, and the attitude that you choose impacts how you experience life. It affects everyone around you.
Being positive takes practice. You must train your mind to see the good in every situation. For me, this practice is ongoing and I make it a point to surround myself with positive people. Life is too short to spend the precious time we have being negative.

“In China, there is a story, about two kinds of friendships. One friend will see you have a splendid wool blanket, and will gift you with golden thread to make your blanket splendid. The other is the friend who knows you are cold and shivering on a snowy day. That friend will bring you charcoal to keep you warm. My aim is to be both of those friends in one.”

We cannot control some of the issues in life. We can, however, control our responses to them. Our power over the issue is determined by how we respond. Choosing a negative response or seeing yourself as a victim, eliminates your choices on the issue. Being positive gives you the power to overcome it or put it behind you.
Choose to be positive.

    I am in love with the shoes Christina is wearing!!! What brand is it from and what’s it call?

    Anyways, I love the message in today’s post. Lately, it has been a struggle to remain positive when so much responsibilities are rising and issues and problems just seem to stack up on each other. However, I can’t just sit there and let it over whelm me. I try my hardest t figure out a positive outcome and I love my support system around me. I try to stay away from the negative nellies and keep my motivation to keep going strong.

    Is that Miyake bag in rose gold??!! I’m loving the outfit you chose Deneice!

    Positivity is something we all struggle with and it’s good to see those that make that their goal in life.
