Potentially profound positivity

A few years ago, I tweeted: “What if for one day people were incapable of thinking, acting, and speaking negatively?

Reactions, perhaps not surprisingly, ranged from “how wonderful!” to “yeah right.

For the most part, the responses seemed a very clear indicator of a person’s perspective on life

If their response was positive, they seemed to be a generally positive person

If the response was negative, their overall perspective on life seemed to trend towards the negative





The positive responders are easy to be around and generally good fun

While the negative responders are a challenge, although an interesting one

They’re a challenge in two ways:

  1. To understand the likely complex nature and twisting pathway of how they got to where they were (I’m guessing as babies they were as smiley and adorable as the positive guys)
  2. To figure out how they could actually be swayed from negative to more positive

Some might respond that getting involved with the negative responders is none of my business, however I think it is

I believe the world itself is capable of an overall shift from negative to positive

And the result of that, well, would be phenomenal (more smiles, more encouragement, move love, more peace)


And if you make it a little of your business, we could, you know, change the world

A lofty goal for sure, but without challenge, life can begin to get dull (and possibly even lead to negativity!)
