"Being negative only makes a difficutl journey more difficult. You may be given a cactus, but you don't have to sit on it." - Wake Up World
I consider myself to be a fairly positive person. Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm human, I have my negative moments. But the more I practice consciousness, the quicker I come back to being positive. Anyone can do it. Like everything else, it just takes practice.
While interacting with people around me, I'm often amazed at the negativity in the world. The thing is, it's a choice. You can't always control the situations that appear in your life, but you can always control how you choose to respond to those situations...ALWAYS! If you're negative, that's your choice. If you're positive, that's also your choice. If someone tells a joke for example, we can choose to be insulted, indignant, take it personally, or just accept it for what it was meant to be - a joke - and laugh. It's our choice.
People don't seem to understand how powerful they are. They don't know how powerful their thoughts and words are. We make choices every single minute of every single day. So choose consciously and wisely. Simply replace any negative thoughts with positive ones - and watch how your life changes.
