People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom!

Good morning, Paul... I so totally agree. People rush to the negative. If they focused more on positives... they'd be much happier.

Yes, yes, yes. I was just thinking when reading something yesterday "Oh my gosh, stop complaining!" If people looked at the positive, life would be so much better.

Hello Paul - Indeed.  It's a choice "we" can make.  Accentuate the positive.  Why not?

Good morning Paul,

I run away from the negative as fast as I can! We get to choose each day how we want to live and negativity is a waste of energy!

Life is so much better when we try to find something positive rather than dwelling on the negatives in our life.

Hi Paul,
Negativity leads to nothing good. There are so many good things in life; what's the point of spending any time on the negative?

I remember years ago, someone was wearing a rubber band around their wrist.  Every time they began to think negatively, they'd snap the rubber band to shake them out of it!

A negative mindset has always made me want to run. Negative Nellies are a big NO for me.
