We’re surrounded by so much negativity, particularly in this election season.
I’m making a conscious effort to get rid of negativity in my own life by turning around my attitudes. It’s all too easy to immediately jump to the thing that’s wrong with something or someone — rather than focusing on the larger portion that is positive, clean, helpful and good-intentioned.
Focusing on the negative side only makes me someone that is no fun to be around. And it greatly cuts into my enjoyment of life.
“Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise” (from here).
