My goal has been to learn how to bring out the positive vibes, changing the attitude of negative thinking I learned as a child.
Growing up, it was assumed the day was going to be a bad one. My dad was a miserable person and it was his goal in life to make everyone around him miserable as well.
The mood was negative most of the time, except for my nana, who really tried to make up for my dad's awful attitude. She gave me the spark of goodness and hope.
In my case, it has been natural for me to assume the negative possibilities before it happened. My sweetie is slowly but surely changing my negative thinking to positive. There are days I wake up automatically possessing the positive vibes and having a wonderful day.
When I think of The Captain's lifelong attitude of positive thinking, I am envious. Why? The power of positive thinking actually makes one a happier individual, making for an awesome quality of life.
Unfortunately, I can only imagine how my quality of life would have been different and how it would have changed the course of my life.
I wish my dad would have died having experienced at least some truly happy times.
