Do you see your cup as half full or half empty? Well, my cup runneth over and that's a good thing. Negativity is such a crushing influence in life and should be avoided. You can't have a positive life with a negative mind. The battle to be happy is a battle against negativity. Bad things happen all the time but how we internalize them, how we react to them, is what ultimately determines their final effect on us.
The fear of the unknown can warp our minds into thinking that there is nothing good to be had from the situation at all. That's not true tho. There are provisions already in place for our needs, we just may not be able to see them yet. Trusting that everything will be okay, just different, is what we need to rely on. They say when God closes one door, He opens another but I know the hallway between the two is often dark and scary. The Light of the world will get you there safely.
So the next time your train of thought goes on the negative track, stop and rechart your course to the positive track. 'No stinkin thinkin.' 'Treat negativity like a duck does water, shake it off.'
