#177: Why A Positive Attitude?
Wednesday, December 23, 2009
I was talking with a long-time friend recently about positive thinking. Compared to him I'm a slackard in that area. But in my mind I'm a pretty positive person most of the time.
Sure, there are times that frustration, even a touch of depression, slips in but those times don't last long.
I wondered why.
Perhaps it's because I know there can't be only this life to live through, that there has to be more after we've passed on.
Perhaps it's because I believe there is a grand plan in place for my life that has yet to fully reveal itself to me.
Perhaps it's simply easier to be upbeat and optimistic than down and dreary.
Regardless, I try to look on the bright side of things and try daily to enjoy the wonders of life and nature that surround us.
How about you? Do you consider yourself mostly positive, neutral or negative? Why do you think that is? What is your outlook on life?
