I choose to focus on all that is good around me.
There are two ways to look at every situation in life. I choose to focus on the brighter side of things, instead of the negative. I accessorize myself with a cheerful smile rather than a critical eye.
When I look at others, I try to see them the way they hope to be seen. Small nuisances in others’ personalities are easy for me to ignore. I focus on the good in others and overlook their imperfections.
I am refreshed when I sit down to do an inventory of my blessings. Looking at my family, health, and friends helps me realize how fortunate I am. The more I look for things to be appreciative about, the more I find.
Even on my worst day, I consider myself fortunate because my life is filled with things money cannot buy. The simple things in life are what make my life great.
Choosing to be positive is a conscious choice I make daily so I can keep my soul unpolluted by judgment and bitterness. When I have a rough day at work, I am thankful I have a job that provides for my family. Positivity is about perspective.
I surround myself with other positive people so that their cheerful attitude rubs off on me. Keeping company with optimistic friends encourages me to seek out the good in times when I want to have a pity party.
Today, I choose to be grateful for what I have. I fill myself with cheer by rejecting every impulse to criticize. I do away with judgment and embrace the code of forgiveness.
