I choose to wake up every day with a positive outlook on life. Today is rainy, windy, and cold, but I still feel that it’s the most beautiful day ever and that I’m going to have the best go of it.
By now you probably realize that I’m a very positive person – I believe wholeheartedly in daily positive affirmations and, in general, choosing to see the brighter sides of things.
Choosing is the key word here. It’s a choice to be positive, even when faced with hard situations.
