    I love when you look at someone with a smile

    on your face, and they break into a smile back at you, not because they know why you're smiling, but because you're happy, and that's enough to make them happy.

    Because, Well....

    Positive people seem to get this question a lot, "how can you be so positive all the time?"  I have a question for you, how can you be so negative all the time?  Is it easy for you to be negative?  I think it's easier to be negative than it is to be...

    I Believe In the Power of Positive Thinking

    I actually used to be a really negative person, plagued by depressing thoughts. I've had to retrain myself to be a more positive person. It isn't always easy, and I haven't completely perfected the art of being positive, but what progress I have made, I have definitely felt a...

    A Necessity

    I have been on the other end ... negative. It can be a real downer and did lead to depression and thoughts of suicide because of my being transgender/transexual. I am past that now and I am glad. I am positive all the time and look to the future.
