I made me think of some of the statements I use that could be similarly modified to allow for a more positive outcome. I love being able to dwell in positivity. Plus, I love the mental exercise of flipping statements that would otherwise stay mired in their negativity (it is akin to – turn a frown upside down). I can’t promise that what I offer will be earth-shattering…I don’t really do earth-shattering. But I hope that in the re-spin of some of my praises you will find a way to re-spin some of yours.

Geez Louise…not again – once a Thelma, always a Thelma.
Thank you Google images!
Well, you get the picture. Next time you find yourself leaning toward negativity take a moment and think about how you can flip it around. Just making the effort will dissipate the negativity. And remember – when nothing goes right – go left.
