Recently I was reading a phrase that caught my attention, " Positive people seek gratitude and joy everyday." Zig Zigler
I have been in ministry for about 28 years and I have found this to be true. I would like to further add that positive people add a lifting grace to our lives that truly inspires, encourages, and breathes life into our day! I think you would do well to surround yourself with these type of people as often as possible.
On the other hand I have found negative people focus on weakness and project grief, pulling us down into their feelings of impotence. What a drag! We must guard our hearts from these toxic relations and do our best to help, but not become infected with negativity.
You are made to shine,
