Positive about something

You don’t have to be positive about everything in order to be positive about something. The world around you doesn’t have to be perfect in order for you to get good work done.

Sure, you’d like the situation and the people around you to be more accommodating, more cooperative, understanding, and amenable. Yet there are plenty of ways you can move forward from the situation as it is, right now.

The world isn’t the way you’d like it to be, and that’s an opportunity. Because you can take action and make it a little better.

You can find something to be positive about. You can expand on that.

The news headlines are important, but they are certainly not everything. Though there is much you cannot change, there are plenty of powerful, significant things you can do.

Your actions today can make a positive difference in your life and the lives of others. Take that opportunity, do what you can, and expand what’s good and valuable in life.
