Do we need any negativity in life? We all know that we don't. Our lives are full of unfortunate events as well as fortunate ones. Humans are the only creatures on earth capable of consciously transforming negativity into positive thoughts and actions. Consciously. The world may not be a happy place right now and the future looks grim indeed, according to the media speculations. But what can you do about it?
When you really feel the need to complain, complain. Because some things are unforgivable and your voice needs to be heard. But it's important to find out what you can take away from it. Too many people keep moaning and don't try to figure out the way to move forward. You don't want to be one of them - let them remain miserable. Believe that you have the power to maintain your optimistic outlook.
