Positive words=Positive life

Speak well to others

It is a difficult thing to find the good in some people. Nevertheless, there is good in everyone.
I must admit, I have a hard time finding good in some political leaders when they illegally invade nations for oil or allow their people to torture.  But yet, when I see these same people look at their wives or children I see a glimpse of tenderness in their eyes.
We only see one side of most peoples’ lives, a side which is usually tainted by preconceived ideas or a side which the media wants us to see, depending on who these people are. And also a side we only want to see because the person or people have hurt us in the past.
The point which I want to make is that everyone can hurt or has hurt someone, whether intentionally or unintentionally; everyone has that other side to their life.
One day, about a year ago, I was in the shower (I do my best thinking there) and realised that I did not like the person I had become. I vowed that day to become a better person.  I had become the person I never wanted to be. That day I made a promise to myself: Firstly, to be nicer to those around, secondly, to find the good in everyone and thirdly, speak positive words into everyone’s life; however, I had moments of relapse, moments where I failed to do this.
Through a process I like to call “self-speak” (A process of speaking to oneself the thing which they want to change. (Ie. “I will be positive”) I got myself back on track and have begun to do just that, to speak positive and encouraging words into people, because everyone has something worth acknowledging and everyone deserves positive words spoken into their lives.
I have now begun to speak positive words, write positive emails and even begun to think positive thoughts about myself and others. Life has become better for me and those around me. There are those who do not trust this change in me or trust that it is for real, but I know that in time they will see that it is legitimate. This does take time, and initially it does take work, but the end result is a good one.
I challenge all of you to do this, to find something positive about everyone you see and/or meet, and say something positive to them. They deserve it and so do you! They will feel better and you will too! Can you imagine, even for a moment, a world where people are positive rather than negative?

Great article! But...did you know there are actually some people who like a barrage of negative comments? lol. But then that is entirely another subject.

Humor aside, I like your ideas and applaud you for spreading joy instead of sorrow.
