Real and positive

Every moment brings something for which you can be truly thankful. It may be overwhelmingly obvious or it may be deeply hidden, but something of real value is always there.

Living positively does not mean that you ignore life’s troubles, difficulties and disappointments. Rather, living positively means that you find and fulfill the real and positive possibilities in every moment, whatever else that moment may hold.

Challenge yourself to always find something for which to be thankful. When you do, you’ll shed a real and valuable positive light on even the most difficult situations. Being realistic about negative things does not have to make you negative. For even in the most troubling of times, you can always be a positive influence.

You never have to be naive, you never have to ignore reality, in order to be truly positive. Because there is always a real and valid reason to keep a positive outlook. Work to see, know and acknowledge that reason in every situation. And you can truly change the world.

— Ralph Marston
