Like the ad sang, I'm going to "accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative and don't mess with nothing in between".
The LOML and I have had a few times in our lives together where we've chosen a more positive path and have lost a few people on the way. Sad as it was at the time, we're mentally healthier because of it.
It seems that time is upon us once more.
Now, more than ever in our lives, we have no room for negative talk, negative thinking, negative attitudes. We have chosen to surround ourselves with people who are happy, cheerful, friendly, nice, respectful.....and it's rubbing off on us.
It's amazing how the conscious decision to focus on the good, on the positive, on the bright side can make all the difference.
My glass is half full.
