Nullifying the Negative


In with the good air out with the bad. Or should it be in with the positive, out with the negative!
The airwaves seem to be shrouded with the negative. Apparently gloom and doom await us! Perhaps it does.

Really, I'm not a Pollyanna. I have my moods and obsess on what is not good, not perfect, not what I want, or what is out of my control. At some point I try to get over it. Eventually, the "issue" becomes less important.

So much of how we view and live our lives is a choice. We can choose to be miserable or we can choose to be happy--or at least not miserable!

There will always be someone who crosses our path that has lived through, or is getting through a tragedy. Listening to this person's story helps us realize how small our problems are.

In order to look at the positive side, we need to count our blessings. This must be done often!
It is so easy to chow down at mealtime and not stop to be thankful for the sustenance on our plates. Even when it is something we don't want to eat.

It is the little acts of gratitude that tell our families and friends that we love them. Let's take a few seconds of our precious time to do this.

So, to all of you out there, thank you for being there!

Spread the love,

Joan
