@BeeHappy -- This might sound a little odd to you at first, but think about it for a while and I think you will see the value in it. One of the more positive things one can do to get into a place of positive thinking and acting is to change the vocabulary one uses to describe things in his/her life. Inside the brain, things work on two-way streets. If we develop the habit of using positive verbiage to understand and visualize our world, that will in turn force the mind to change its thinking patterns and vice versa.

I absolutely agree with that! Thanks for sharing it.

Fine on a personal level but when the negativity of thoughts like invading Venezuela intrude it is a negative no matter how optimistic you are.

I was talking to a friend on the phone one day and said, "my husband never got around to building a linen closet." He told me not to say that, to just say I don't have a linen closet. I learned a lot from that little exchange.

@FrayedBear -- While that is true, even it can be modified by changing the vocabulary in discussing the issue. At the local (individual) level one can affect one's world. On a global level, it requires everyone to exercise this sort of control. Reality would seem to dictate that such a mass response is not likely, but that does not eliminate the advantage of improving one's local outlook and responses to the reality that surrounds one. Please, don't misunderstand me. I am a long, long way from being able to do this in all things, but I have experienced some of the benefits of the practice.

Not a bad idea, but it takes more than just thinking positive thoughts, in my experience, to make real change.

It's a beginning. ?

@BeeHappy It does help.

I need to sort things out! And I will run my worries by people that I trust to give me feed back that is usually helpful. If they can’t help I don’t hold it against them...nobody knows everything!

This makes good sense.

@Freedompath I like that.

I'm hoping/pretty sure to be starting a new job in a couple of weeks. I will be trained to be the lead of a CS unit. I want to print this out and put it up in my new cubicle.

That would be perfect! Good luck with the new job! ?
