Imagine all of your memories are upon flash drives - all of them as movies- the good, the bad and the ugly. Positive people watch the good ones more often, they remind themselves and others of everyone's best traits. The bad or ugly ones they have reflected upon and come to a healthy form of acceptance, one that is both protective of the self and fair to others. Negative people ignore the good flash drives and keep the bad and ugly drives in easy reach. Thus when they are in any combative frame of mind they bring them up quickly and with force, surprising others, wounding others, creating negative emotions in those around them. And this is the power of positive thinking. By choosing your flash drives carefully, by learning how to process and let go of the bad and ugly flash drives, we can change ourselves and our relationships for the better.
