Negative into Positive

I hate to see people beating themselves up over something. Most of the time its unnecessary. I believe there is something good in everything, every cloud has its sliver lining, *insert cliche here*. A lot of bad things are just good things in disguise. A failure at one thing can lead to success at another, or at least an opportunity to learn from your mistakes. It can also inspire you to work harder toward your goals. My dance studio used to have a quote on the wall. It was some thing along the lines of "Practice won't make you perfect... but it will make you close."It works with your personality too. My best and worst quality is being stubborn. My point here is to not take every setback or mistake so seriously. It will save everyone a lot of stress in the end. That's your daily dose of reality. Thanks for reading!


  1. Gr8 post! Love it!!!!

    I like to take it to another level: There's no such thing as negative... only positive... but we need to adjust our mindset and our "vision" in order to make that possible.

    I agree~ our strengths are usually our weaknesses, so our goal should be to figure out how to bring the strength out of us more often, rather than allowing the weakness to dominate... as it tends to do if not paid attention to.


  2. Your post is spot on. A lot of people spend too much time worring about things that can actually be good for them.

    In reponse to Danyne's comment, I wouldn't go so far as to say there is no negative but I see what your saying. It's all about how we think about it.
