Positive thinking for dummies...

Yesterday, I read a letter on Time magazine, where this lady for Oregon said that, in exchange for silently listening to a complete account of a bad day at school on the ride back from school, she wanted them to tell her three positive things that had happened that day at school. Some days, the most positive was as trivial as the fact that the packed lunch had been palatable, but the lady said that the three years during which she had this instruction in place till her children graduated from school, she had seen a positive difference. I think I will do something similar here.

Spring is almost here and I am still almost broke. Also, my facial hair is getting to be too scratchy. The 14thof February is just a week away and I won’t, barring a major social miracle, have an exchange of gifts to mark the day. For the first time in the last few years, I have not watched any of the major Oscar nominated movies. Now that you have heard me crib, here are the positives. Spring’s here and days are getting warmer and brighter steadily. My facial hair is making me looking much more distinguished and pity I will have to take it off sometime soon. I have enjoyed watching almost every one of the animated movies nominated for the Oscar this year. And as far as that stupid day is concerned, haven’t I said enough in the first part of this line? Hmmm… sour grapes or not, I feel better already!
