Accentuate the Positive
I remember a song in elementary school:
Accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister in between
There is a lot of negative in my life right now. In yours too, I'm sure. But, as much as I am able to choose, I choose to let my mind feast on the positive aspects. I have the most wonderful wife in the world for me. My job is a great fit for my skills and passions. I am surrounded by many supportive friends. My cat is cute and cuddly. Talk about the American Dream..I own not one, but TWO homes! And one of them has those beautiful flowers blooming in the back yard.
Many would love to have just half of what I am blessed with.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Philippians 4:8
