Positive = Positive. Negative = Positive.
Just saying that "Everything happens for a reason" is not sufficient for my brain. I love the sentiment, but it is not as easy as that.
I think, in general, positive thinking people have the ability to enjoy good moments and can find a positive spin (either in retrospect or in the moment) of situations that are not "good." I have the philosophy that we should only be pursuing things that we are passionate about and if we all did that, the world would be such a better place. All of us people are constantly bumping in to each-other in this world while we are on our way to something else. Imagine if everyone was on their way to a destination they truly passionate about getting to. I think there would be less road rage.
I am still figuring out how to earn enough money to pay for my acting classes in NY. Although I am not sure how I am going to earn it just yet, I do know this: I believe in myself and I am pursuing what I am passionate about. So, I will find a way to make it work.
Or, I will fail miserably and learn something positive from that as well.
I think I am going to Taco Bell now.
