Positive Thinking – Acknowledging the Negative

   I am a strong supporter of positive thinking but that doesn’t mean being oblivious to negative circumstances.  I really don’t believe that the world is all rainbows, unicorns and butterflies.  I do believe, however, that no matter what the situation, we can move forward in the best possible way – even if that means choosing the lesser of two evils.

   Every situation offers us options, some more obvious than others. We need to examine those options.  What is it I can learn?  What do I need to gain?  What do I need to surrender?  What do I need to leave behind?  How do I persevere?  These are all questions that I can ask myself so that I can continue to move in a positive direction.

   The more honest I am with the person in the mirror, the clearer my vision will be as to who I am and who I am destined to become.  It isn’t just about getting ahead, it’s about getting ahead and bringing the world up with me.  If I want to see changes in my world, then I must become the change I want to see.  I can’t expect kindness, if I am unkind.  I can’t expect generosity if I am overly selfish.  I still might receive those things from positive thinking people but I shouldn’t expect them.

   Our worldview is a reflection of ourselves.  The world isn’t perfect and neither am I, but I think it is beautiful and so are you.  I am glad you are in my world.  I know that when you find your true gifts, the world will be a much better place.

   Take care, stay well, and be safe.
