The more I thought about my last post, the more I wondered about the concept of “positive thinking”. Is it real, and is there a good definition for it?
Does it mean being upbeat? Can you be depressed, but still think positively? Can you be happy [upbeat], but think negatively? Can you be negative for the short term, but positive for the long term? or vice versa?
I’m pretty sure at any given moment in any given day, month or year, I could fit into each of those categories.
Can’t I just enjoy life now, despite the knowledge I’m going to die sooner than later? Is that thinking negatively or positively? After all, we’re all going to die. I just have a better idea of when that is going to be. And is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Just some thoughts to ponder, and maybe even take your mind of the inevitable.
