    What does 'think positive' really mean?


    Quite often when we're going through a challenging time, or we're just plain miserable, we invariably get the advice to just Please or Register to view linksthink positive Please or Register to view links

    Sometimes it's difficult to figure out exactly what that means.

    Does it mean to deny our pain or discomfort?

    Should we pretend everything is alright?

    Perhaps, at times, we would prefer to wallow. Surely there must be some merit in wallowing. Indeed there may be, (time heals most wounds) however, at some point we have to pick ourselves up and move on.

    In order to do so, we must change our mindsets, or attitudes, from being non-productive to those that are positive and progressive. Of course, we can't be in denial, or adopt a Pollyannaish, rose-colored glasses way of looking at the world.

    Negative feelings and circumstances do exist and often serve as an indication that something is not working, or needs attention. In such cases we must employ positive thinking and use it as a strategy for interpreting what happens to us in a useful, constructive way to make our lives work better. Of course, it doesn't mean denying pain and discomfort. It means making sense of them and using what lesson we learned from the experience we surpass and have the positive mindset that everything will be solve in tamang panahon in God's wisdom and help.
