Positive thinking is a conscious effort to view ourselves with high esteem. It is a choice to bring out our strengths and lovingly work on our weaknesses. It is a choice to appreciate, support and encourage the positive characteristics of those around us, especially the people we love. It is a conscious mental effort to appreciate our past and current circumstances in life while also seeing that the future has much in store for us, that the future is for us to make. It is a decision to be happier.
