keep focusing on the positives because there's always going to be negatives everywhere you turn. I just don't want to waste time dwelling on negatives while the positives pass. Sometimes its hard but I would feel much more foolish for the time wasted. That's how I see things anyway.

The first is building habits of looking at the bright side of things. The more I do it, the easier it gets.
The second is to keep an eye on the stories I tell myself. When I start obsessing over what's wrong or telling myself "ain't it awful?" I can work myself into a negative mood pronto; but if I'm talking positively to myself, my energy lifts..
