Being positive

February 7th, 2009

One of the things I always try to do in life is be positive. I always try to see the best in a situation or see the best in people, even if things are not looking good at the time.

Another thing I try to do is not be negative towards or criticise other people, churches, groups, sporting teams, governments or businesses. I guess I would rather spend my energy on being positive about something or trying to change the situation for the better, rather than taking pot shots from the outside.

I just don’t understand people who are always negative and running things down. It is something I can’t relate to at all. I don’t see how it is helpful, encouraging or makes the situation better.

Is it just me or is there anyone else out there who feels the same?
