Today is National Look on the Bright Side Day, where you take a not-so-positive event and give it a positive spin.
Your submission didn’t get accepted? On the bright side, you have more time to look over your work and find that one publication that’ll adore it.
Dogs woke you up early? Look on the bright side: not only did you not sleep in, but now you can get up and get more done than you originally planned (and there’s always power naps. I survive by power naps).
Today, simply try to find positives in all the negatives you encounter. It sounds cheesy, but it’s pretty neat how something so small can affect your mood for the better. I’m a compulsive complainer and epically pessimistic, but today I’m going to try and counter that so I can have one less exhausting day in my week.
Encounter your spin-worthy occurrence. Share with someone or even just in your own journal.
Here’s to the bright side!
