As part of my new year’s resolution in 2017 to be happier, I am aiming to post something every week as part of this Pessimist to Semi-Optimist (PTO) Project to battle negative thoughts. Each post will address a bad thought, combat it with brain-xercises (aka hard thinking!) and then change the thought into a semi-positive one. This is similar to what I’m doing as part of cognitive behavioral therapy to stop myself from spiraling into depression.
Everyone struggles with something. In sharing my journey on battling negativity, I hope that my semi-positive thoughts will help others.
