That is not what being optimistic means. It doesnt mean not being aware of your situation, not trying to problem solve, not realizing what faults may
lie in self or others that is contributing to the various difficulties around us, ignoring the world and those in need.
Being positive means, consciously being aware of our thoughts, taking time to work out the negative ones, sometimes asking what lessons they are
teaching us and seeing where they lead in childhood say, and solving, it means, seeing and envisioning good outcomes to situations, good things
happening. If you have faith, you can add prayer to this. Spirituality, you can add meditation and visualization.
If you are in a negative mood, feeling like a slump, picture the sun inside of you and the frequency raising to joy. Strive to elevate your mood with
nature, birdsong, sunshine, hugs, meditation and strive to reach a higher feeling, and from there, shine solutions to your problem ask for them.
See the world waking up, and committees of citizens striving for eco farms and grass roots empowerment meeting with leaders who decide to not go the
dark path of slavery any longer and are co-working with citizens to create abundance for all. See solutions. See good things.
It does not mean burying your head in the sand like an osterich however, but not giving into the emotional charge of negativity or dark situations,
where at all possible, and where its possible to turn them around, starting to do so.
Some situations are very much more difficult and dangerous and need immediate efforts to survive in.
If you've ever cloud work, pictured shapes in clouds or dispersing clouds, you'd find out that, thought creates, or co-creates. And that means taking
responsibility as much as possible for our thoughts and not allowing them to be hijacked.
Searching for, finding life goals. Working out life paths, and striving to reach those paths. Being positive is a very good thing to do. Its a gift
to all around you and the world in general.
