Lately I've been noticing more and more how many view life through the mindset of the glass being half full. While that one Facebook post that takes a negative view of whatever happened that day might just signal a bad day--perhaps it is bigger than that and speaks to who we are becoming as a society.
I know from personal experience that when I get into that rut of negativity it seems like everything around me seems to be bad. The funny thing is that usually it's not that bad--it's just how I'm choosing to view it! Thankfully for one reason or another I've been able to reset and refocus my perception which allows me to move in a more positive direction.
But what if society doesn't reset the way it thinks? What if taking a negative view of everything becomes our new normal?
I, for one, do not want to see that happen. I'm not sure what that means for you--but for the next month I'm going to make a conscious effort (and plan to make this a forever habit) to try to stop myself in my tracks when I start to allow negativity to control my thoughts.
I'm choosing now that this negative speech and thought is not who I want to be. I don't want to tear down--I want to build up and encourage. Perhaps I'm just one person--or perhaps you will join me in this quest toward positive thinking and speech. This is who I want to be--who I am--and the community in which I want to work and live! Let's join together to make this happen!
