“Those who move forward with a happy spirit will find that things have a way of working out.” ~Gordon B. Hinckley
We’ve all met a few chronic complainers and serial critics. If we spend enough time with these folks, we risk falling under the insidious spell of negativity and dissatisfaction. How much fun is that?
Of course, life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. Bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to bad people. (Yes, it’s infuriating.) As today’s quote suggests, if we aim for optimism most of the time, we’ll discover that life is less of a drag and our outlook improves.
A negative attitude won’t resolve problems. And, as any therapist will tell you, positive attitudes are contagious. Look for people who move through their days “with a happy spirit.” ~Cindy La Ferle
