You can complain because roses have thorns. Or you can rejoice that thorns have roses.

The secrets of positive people - WRITTEN BY SP

Positive people tend to have many similar characteristics, such as respecting everyone's contribution to a project and knowing during hard times that things will get better.

They have the power to make that change happen, an understanding that their attitudes can directly affect outcomes, and a commitment to increasing positive thoughts and diminishing negative ones. Are you putting effort towards becoming a more positive person?

Avoid complaining when things are turning sour, realize that the negatives and the positives in life will level out, and take responsibility for your life and actions. You are the only person responsible for your attitude--and your life.

    Excellent advise. I just love it when people can make lemonaid out of lemons. God certainly can and does use the bad for His purposes. I am a living example of what the Lord can do. He used my weakness for sweets to turn me into a person who now desires more than glory for myself because of how I look but glory for Him because of what He can do in us. The outside follows.

    Thanks for the inspiring post, Lee Ann. I am making a priority to be positive and I happen to be working on “avoiding to complain”. I didn’t realize I was complaining about little things and making exuses, i.e “It’s too hot to bike”, etc. So I’m watching for little things like that and stop complaining. I’ll let you know how it goes. ! - Risa
