I try to stay positive in my overwhelmingly stressful life. Eventually everything works out. Except for my weight loss situation. I just can't get in the right frame of mind to do that. But I remain positive on the SP website and my SP Friends are awesome. Though I haven't lost what I am hoping to lose, I am not gaining either. The positivity of the website and my SP Friends helps me motivate myself to try and do my best. And for that I am grateful as it helps in other aspects of my life.

I am mostly positive. We've had some tough trials, so my sunshiney outlook has sometimes gotten on my hubby's nerves. lol But hey, I KNOW that God has things under control. The best case scenario is that no bad things every happen. The worst case scenario is we have an opportunity to learn from the trial.

And we all lived happily ever after...

I still have trouble with getting rid of negative thoughts, so I am not sure I can say. I grew up around a lot of negativity, so I have problems with it myself. Somehow, when I got cancer I managed to be positive instead of negative, but I don't know how. All I know is I thought about my dogs and horse and how I needed to make it through for them and that helped. Also all the prayers by my friends.

I am rarely negative but I do have some concerns that I find myself thinking of. Looking to the bright side instead of dwelling on the dark side as much as possible.

I've gotten pretty good at catching the negative thoughts almost as soon as I think them. I then think, NO that isn't how it goes and rethink the same thing in a positive wording.

I seriously just posted a blog about the negativity I experienced on another team.

In this situation I educate myself. If it's just based on opinion, then I tell myself their opinion doesn't get any power in my life and move on.

Thank you team for being so awesome!

I feel like i'm a positive person but I have my days. I found it helps to journal. Even it it is negative journaling....it gets it out of your head(so it speak) so you can more forward with a positive outlook.

Love that pledge. Something I really need to remember each day. For me, each day is a challenge and I'm determined to conquer it.

Forcing myself to move on, and I'm good at it because I seem to be a naturally dark person and I've come to realize that the only person that is hurt by my dark thoughts is me. So I guess my answer is that I've conditioned myself not to dwell on the negative and to appreciate the positive.

We all get negative thoughts sometimes. So how do you turn a negative thought into a positive one?
