I have right now seen a discussion in this very interest that think you are laying on the bed straying at the blank wall and imagine of all miseries of life. For me life is precious venture created by the almighty and given us to live and love it. I foresee and imagine all pleasures,love,affections,emotions,success and achievements,to do good for others, to think good for self and others, and pray and wish all happiness for others. No sorrows and miseries and breaking in life are my imaginations. My approach towards life is positive being a optimistic and can not think or do bad for others. What is your approach towards life.Please share and discuss to lead the discussion further.

Dear friend, I too want to be positive and frankly at times I become negative too which I never wanted to be. Hence as far as possible I do want to be always positive. May be a positive thinker may attain more peace than a negative thinker. The most one do good I hope the same way he may get from those good people too.

I don't think it is wrong for people to feel negative/depressed/low about life, it is a natural human emotion along with all the others. What is important is what you do with those thoughts, sometimes when I feel low I just take a deep breath and say to my self that this is not going to help and I must do something about it, there is always a way you just have to look for it. This gives me energy and strength to get up and do something to change my life for the better. HTH

Very well stated and I could not agree more! Although it can sometimes be hard we owe it to ourselves to think and act positively. It is not just for ourselves but for the benfit of those around us as well. We get back in life what we put out and it is next to impossible to be sad or pessimistic when you are thinking positive thoughts. All we are in this world is all we choose to be and the only person that ultimately controls our mindset is ourself. We must show gratitude for all we have and all we receive and must also try to see the silver lining in all that we face in life. It IS always ther; it is just harder to find it sometimes!

I always look at the positive things of life. Life is too precious to be looking at the negitive of life. I have many blessings and I always count them and appreciate what I do have. There are always people that have worse problems than you do. I like to pray for people for things to go better for them. You can either think negative and be in a bad mood. Or you can think positive and be in a uplifting mood. I choose the second and pass on my positive attitude on to others.

Hi It's nice to know that you look at life positively. But, I think overlooking the pain and miseries of life is something like not accepting the reality. So I would like to think positively, act positively but at the same time I remember that Life isn't a bed of roses. Yes, it's not good to do something bad for others. I fully agree with this.

That's a great approach sweethomecatring! I share the same views as you do, looking at the positive aspect of things. There are a lot of trials we face on our everyday life, but I believe every single one of them has meaning if we only patiently look for it. We may thing we are the most miserable person in the world only to be surprised moments later that there are others in far worse situations than we are.

i also feel/do the same. i think its really better to be optimistic than the other way around coz i believe that if you know it in yourself that you can do it, theres actually a big chance that it will come true. i always try to have positive outlook in life, in all the things im doing and things i wanna do because no one would have much bigger influence to me than myself at all :)

Well, my approach to life is moving on with all things i encounter. It is not that easy but once we used to do it, it will be a part of our daily routine. Having yourself the goals you want to achieve is like preparing for the future. No one knows what will happen next. So be positive and stay to be it.

My approach towards life is think negative also. Then eliminate all the negatives and you will be left with only positives. Till now this approach is giving me success and saving me from heartbreaks, failures and a lot more.

Hi there. I believe that the reason why there are still good things going on in life is because of positive thinking. Think about it. The pessimistic people of the world, did any of them achieve any kind of success? Heck no. Maybe some of them were once that way before they found the way that in order to be successful, they have to be positive and think positive as well as do something about it. For example, I once was like that but figure it's a waste of time being negative. Besides, I have my kids encouraging me to be positive since I am with them and even though there were times they drove me nuts, I wouldn't have it any other way. They are my motivation in life.

human as we are, we have had experiences. these could be good or bad. if we have bad expeirences, we oftentimes tend to blame ourselves. this thing could drive towards negative thinking. being pessimistic is a natural instinct for humans. however, this has no good result. the more you have a negative approach, the more that nothing good will happen in your life. that is why, in my case, i really shifted... everytime i try to be positive thinker all the time. if i have bad experiences, then i wjould divert it into positive one.

sweethomecatring hi guess I ahve not been very positive and ,maybe thats making our situation worse,but myson had been out of work for more than three weeks and rents past due,he is our sole breadwinner so we are in big trouble, I try to be positive but facts are facts so maybe if I imagine seeing him getting a job and now bringing home money for the rent maybe this will spur the right vibes to get that job. I am not positive by nature but can and am willing to learn.
