Great article. Great advice. Report
I love this article, it helps me remember why I start my day with a reason to be grateful for my day and my life. Then, I am happy to hear from my friends and loved ones because how lonely I would be without them in my life. Be grateful for your blessings. And, start each day by counting your blessings. Report

For years i dwelt on the negative & all it did was forestall meeting my goals. I have now developed a more balanced perspective & not only feel better but accomplish more. Report

Since working this program, I have been happy. Report
Today I am going to go for some NSV by smiling more, laughing more and sharing those smiles and laughs with people I don't know. Report
I try to focus on the positive. But sometimes I am not focused and allow myself to to be sucked into the negative. Some of this is habit, but I have to keep working at it. Report
I have a daughter who is positive in the extreme. When I asked her how she could stand the unreasonable demands that her boss places on her, she simply shrugs and says, "he pays me well and expects the best from me - I refuse to let the stress take over!" DH is the other extreme, who thinks anything that can go wrong, will! I am somewhere in the middle. I am positive most of the time but sometimes get derailed by circumstances. Report
I would respectively request that you members of the Cult of Positivity kindly stay out of the way of the realists; those of us who are not so foolish to think that you can solve a damned thing by wishing it away.
You have to face facts, even when they are unpleasant, and deal with them accordingly . Like, for example, you're fat because you eat too much, and you eat the wrong stuff, and you don't move enough. That's not going to change unless you change your habits, and no one is responsible for it but you.
In a work environment, you cultists are risky liabilities. Report
Great article!! I do my best to focus on the positive every day. My new mantra, when I see something I don't like - rude behavior, litter on the street - is to be the change that I want to see if the world. I can be pleasant and polite even when others are rude. I can pick-up the trash so that others see how nice the area looks when the trash is put in the trash can. Ruminating just puts me in a negative place and is not worth it. Let's all be the change that we want to see in the world! Report
Excellent article and just what I needed to start my day on a positive note. I've had some particularly challenging days with one of my adult children and this is a reminder that I need to limit my exposure. Report
Wonderful article. Thank you. Report
