These are words I live by. I'm a big old believer in the power of positive thinking.
But I haven't always been. In high school I remember actually saying out loud a few times, it's better to just expect the worst because if it happens it doesn't suck as bad. And by "the worst" I probably meant like not getting a call from a boy that night or having to stay at home yet again because I wasn't in the know on where the parties were happening. You know, "the worsttttttt."
That boo who girl from high school drives me nuts for two reasons. A. no one likes to hang around Debbie Downer. Positive attitudes are infectious, so are negative attitudes. I'm not saying you have to pretend to be happy all the time, God knows I'm not, I'm just saying you don't always have to be the person saying no.
And B. (now this is where I get a little hippy dippy) I truly believe there's something to thinking and believing good things will come your way, than in turn brings good things your way. The Universe is not against you, it's rooting for you.
I could talk about this stuff for days. DAYS I tell you. It just really gets me going and I know firsthand my life has gotten significantly better since I decided to see the glass half full rather than half empty.
But I'll spare you the energy talk today because I know it's not everyone's deal. However if it is your deal, I suggest reading books like The Secret (duh), The Power, The Alchemist, The Power of Positive Thinking, Write It Down Make It Happen, Daily Affirmations ... or anything similar.
And at the very least simply reading a book about thinking positive makes you feel better, so it's not like you have anything to lose.
