  1. It’s definitely important for me to find the positives in my daily life, whether it’s a good or a bad day. Reminding myself of the good things helps me get through the difficult days. It can make a bad day a little bit better. It doesn’t fix everything, but it definitely helps.

  2. nope.. I don’t see things as positive or negative. Just either good karma or bad karma. if that makes sense and usually it’s for other people. My sister believes in the positive. I am too pessimistic to think that way.

  3. I am rather the pesimist than optimist, though I’m not a kind of pesimist who’s always complaining on everything, it’s rather defensive, I mean I try to not get into euphoria because of something, until it happen, because when you expect something to be beautiful, great and perfect it very often shows as opposite and when you had such expectations, you become even more disappointed. For some time ago I always thought very negatively, it was really hard for me to find positives, I was very annoyed when someone talked to me that I should think positively, maybe because I had such person in my life who repeated it constantly and was annoyingly optimistic, but very toxic to me even though and it looks like she pretends optimism. But then it started slowly to notice brighter things in life and now I’m still pesimistic, but always try to see positives and am quite good at it, I must admit. Even if I’m very depressive, I have rarely anhedonia and still can enjoy things I like, in lower degree, but I can. And I’m very proud of myself in this case, ’cause I gained this skill completely on my own. When this year began, my Mum told me that she read on one of the blogs she follows that the author of this blog decided that she’ll everyday find one nice thing that happened to her and will write it down and so she’ll have 364 nice things that happened to her. I liked this idea and started to do it also and I noticed that even in my very very very harsh days it’s always something nice, sometimes it’s even hard to pick just one thing. 😀

    1. I like that idea to write down one thing every day and keep it then you have 364 different things to be positive about, yes, that’s a great idea might try that myself 😄
