Because to most of everyday tasks it is always possible to choose a positive or negative outlook, and I mean choose, because that is what it is all about. I don’t think that most people feel that they have a choice of choosing happiness or sadness but in fact they actually do.
The weird thing is that I even have problems trusting people that are too happy. If someone is too happy I always assume that something is wrong or that they hide a big dark secret, in fact I even find them creepy.
I prefer to have a realistic view on life but it is always up to us in which color we decide to color the world in.
So school have just started and already people are complaining of the workload, well come on this is our free choice, and we get to learn a lot of interesting things.
Someone complained about not finding the love of her life, well is that all what life is about, isn’t life more than just finding someone or rather can’t life be fun even though he/she is not around.
The only thing negative thoughts are good at is to create even more negative thoughts, or has it another purpose than that?
It is almost as though we today think it is cool to be negative, to not bother about anything. Even now writing this I feel uncool; well it is time for a change. We will only live once so why not try to do the best of it. At least I will try for a while, maybe it is cool to be uncool?
