The difference between Negative and Positive


Pay close attention to the particular thoughts you use to deprive yourself of happiness - Byron Katie
There are the two choices we have in our thought process. One can make life beautiful while the other stops us completely from being happy.

How are you using your train of thought? Does it drag you down where you don't see any light ahead? Are you finding that your life does not know joy? Think for a moment where your thoughts have been leading you. What have you been thinking about?

  • Are you living in the past?
  • Are you worried about something?
  • Are you fearful?
  • Are you angry?

One of the first things I will tell you is to jet right out of yesterday. It serves no purpose because we can't do it over and to stay in the past is so counterproductive to your happiness.There are so many things to live in the present for.......so many things we can experience that will help us to overcome whatever it was we keep thinking about which keeps us looking backwards when we really want to go forward........something we can do if we allow the present moment to be our focus.

If worry is consuming you then you are projecting something that may not even happen. You are not allowing answers or solutions because you are centered on a feeling of hopelessness that when your thoughts are set there will make your days so unhappy.

If you are fearful this too brings such feelings that blot out any chance of enjoying your life in ways that will help you to be happy. Help yourself by letting go of being afraid so you can go forward with a sense of peace.

If you are angry you put yourself in a state of unhappiness which prevents you from seeing life in a clear way. You are focused on feeling a negative way to look at life. You are worked up and not calm so that you truly feel unbalanced.

  • Why do you suppose we choose these negative emotions which cloud our everyday living when we have an alternative?
  • Why would we do this to our mind and body as these negative emotions take a toll on our health and well-being?


Positive thoughts are a choice. They take practice and a willingness to see life in the best way possible.
  • What if you decided that for your greater good you would at least try to practice thinking in a more positive light?
  • What if you decided to let go of all of the negative thoughts and feelings you have about your life?
  • What if you decided to live each day as it comes without expecting anything negative and you welcome the positive?
One of the first things to do is to really pay attention to what is going on in your life and how much you have to be grateful for. Once you start paying attention to what is right around you..... that is good........ you will be amazed at how much you have and how many positive things are going on in your life.

When you pay attention to the positive it is like a light switch going on......it is like you have a weight lifted......there are so many things in life that are good.....that are right.....that are beautiful........pay attention to those for there lies the happiness you have been missing.

Stop practicing negativity.......it hurts your beautiful spirit ........it does not allow you to live your life to the fullest.......it certainly does not allow more positive things in your life.

Be all you can be in the most positive frame of mind. Try this and see if life doesn't change in ways that will show you just how important positive thoughts are.

Many Blessing to All
