I interacted with somebody today who simply decided that he would be peeved off all day…I was positive with them in spite of their “It’s been a long day,” feeling.

Then, a pizza guy stepped up helped me with some unexpected mobility issues.

I had a flat tire yesterday, in the middle of a huge storm.

For me, being positive in the midst of difficulty has been a learned behavior, not an innate characteristic.

So no smarmy affirmations here…just a thought that if you can see positives, telegraph them and use them.
