I believe we choose to be that “glass half empty” or “glass half full” sort of person. Even someone who seems to live in the midst of a whirling dervish of woes gets to be in charge of their attitude, approach to live, and expressions. We can choose to bitch and moan… or we can choose not to do so. Even if we’ve had one rather hideously negative moment, hour, day, week, or year, each day delivers a new opportunity to express better. Let’s go ahead and turn the page. Focus on what we can personally do more positively and avoid criticizing others’ behavior or getting sucked into someone else’s pity party. Say a little prayer (or a big prayer), tie a knot, and hang on tight! I am totally positive that we can do this!
“In order to carry a positive action, we must develop a positive vision.”
— Sonam Gyatso (1543 – 1586)
