Something that affects my positivity is whether I have other issues in my life that I haven’t dealt with. If so, I become unbalanced and negative.
Misconceptions that I had about being a positive person 

I thought that being a positive person was stupid because I knew that bad things in life were bound to happen to us, so it was always better to expect that the bad thing would matter what. This way we wouldn’t ever be caught by surprise and disappointed. 

I thought that being a positive person meant being too sunny...ignoring or not paying adequate attention to the difficulties of life. I thought that being a positive person was very one-dimensional.

Having a positive (or not positive) attitude affects so many things:

-How we feel at any given moment when nothing interesting is really happening
-How we feel about our past
-How we feel about our future
-How we feel about ourselves
-How we feel about others, about things, about humankind, about the world
-How we feel about the state of our lives

When I’m being negative 

A constant dull ache
That seems to increase ever so slightly the longer it goes on

Things are gray
A dull, lifeless gray
Dull, lifeless, depressing

The future is bright

I don’t mean to say that we are going to get good outcomes all the time. Not necessarily.

But in general, the future is bright. That’s how a positive person thinks. For no reason, really. That’s what it means to be positive.

Positivity today

It isn’t a perfect day
I certainly have struggles
There’s also a lot to feel good about
And that feels great

Part of being positive is certainly to embrace the unknown.
