Default This is a good thought

Read this today and totally agree.


The next time you are about to say, "I hate (insert what bugs you)," consider a new way of expressing your opinions. Tell us what you love, usually the opposite action or result you were about to rail against. You'd be surprised how changing words changes conversations for the better.

Yes that does make complete sense to me. I will have to test that out. Negativity is something that drives me crazy and feel that when you express the positive it just makes things better.

I like it. I think that more and more people need to do this. When one is negative it can ruin someone's day or make them negative. Try being positive and it will go a long ways.

Great thought for sure. I love that you accentuate the positive. Reminds me of that song "You Got to Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative".

Yes this is very helpful. I do agree that it will work for anyone that is always using negative words.

Yes this is inspirational. You should not be negative all the time. When you say hate or things like that, you are just bringing yourself down.
