  1. Interesting quote and something people don’t always do. For the most part people tend to look at the negative first. Maybe trying to see the positive first, will yield better results?

    I think I will try this to see how things pan out.

    1. Thanks Maria. I agree. It’s far easier for the brain to think negatively than it does for the brain to think positively, primarily because our thoughts are based on our experiences and if my experiences are anything to go on, they’ve mostly been negative.

      The more positive our experiences, the more positive we will stay, particularly in new scenarios. I’d love you to come back and tell us how you get on.

  2. I agree. I have found that if you give out positivity, you do tend to get it back. There are exceptions obviously, but you can’t legislate for everyone’s behaviour.

    1. I like this quote and agree. Yes it’s all part of the karmic scenario. It has always been my belief that positive behaviour through a positive life, will always reward us with a positive life.

      You’re right it’s not always easy to legislate for other people’s behaviour; but we will always be judged singularly on our behaviour. It’s just how karma works.

  3. I normally assume a persons positive intent, but with hidden caution of course. I’ve been caught off guard one too many times to leave myself totally exposed.

    1. Thanks Tim. If it’s someone who isn’t familiar to us it’s easy to get caught off guard of course. It’s happened to me a few times.

      From my own experience we tend to know who those people; those we can trust and who are positive.
