In a time with critical issues in gas prices, rates increase, mortgage slump and a war that is hard to end, we have to think positive. Things will change although we do not know when. Perfection is hard and it probably will never be fully reach but Thinking Positive in defeat is something to keep.Start with positive thoughts about any given situation.Weight the good and forget the bad. A positive mind can produce change but a negative mind is pain.

if we are not going to think positively i think we are all going to have an heart attack. i have a two year old son and he makes me think positively with life. i know he depends on me with his life and his future depends on me. if i will not look at the world in a different prospective i am sure it will affect not only me being me also my health. i need to make sure i raise him properly and so i need to face every morning with a smile on my face. every parent is willing to give theri best specially for their children.

yes we parents have all something in common. but let me correct you i am not a mother har har har i am a father. but still we are both parents and we are going to do anything and everything for our children, and that makes life worth living. it always a little bitter and a little sweet.

Writing affirmations is what helps me...also knowing that you are not ALONE. We are all in the same 'high inflation boat' and it keeps getting more and more critical. But the writing of affirmations pertaining to myself in hard times and journaling is what keeps me going. You only have one life. When you are a kid, your parents feed you bull that it will be a fairy tale world one day. But there is not one generation that has had the fairytale. There are always challenges to be met. So write those affirmations and it will keep you going. Example in times of duress and stress...I am strong I am strong I am strong. It didn't hurt Tiger Woods to do this. His father made him a tape of affirmations, and he listened to them before bed every night.He wrote a hundreds of times a day I am a champion, I am the best golfer in the world, I am a million dollar man... And He is.! Never give into your negative mind...just watch those thoughts and let them float away...then come back to the positive. You are only you,Be the best you. Stella

One might say that I think positively ust to spite the devil. LOl Whatever negaie things are going on in my life won't get the satisfaction o getting me upset. I will always find a way to outsmart the negative hings in my life, and live my lie the way I want to, overcoming any problem that comes at me.

I have to say that positive thinking can help in some ways. I usually try to think about my blessings in life and that things could be worse and I tell myself that things could get better. It sometimes takes some powerful thoughts to stay on track and keep the positivity flowing. I need to move on for my family's sake. My young boy needs me so I try to stay in a good mood if I can.
