I haven’t always been a positive person. This might be the understatement of the decade.
Yet, I feel like I’ve made major strides in the last several years and have tried to turn that around. I’m still a work in progress. But one of the most important thought-changes I’m making is trying to find the positive in any and all situations.
For instance, today my car went to the shop. It had been making a funny noise and I was fearing the worst. It turned out to be the wheel bearing and while they were there they discovered the axle was in really bad shape, too.
$500 later, I’m back in business.
Now, $500 is a ton of money. But a) it wasn’t $2,000, which is what an engine or transmission would probably cost and b) The axle didn’t break while I was on the road and cause even more damage or worse yet, hurt me or someone else.
So, yes, my wallet is $500 lighter but there are positive things here. And I kinda like to find that positive thing to keep me on the right path.
