Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Positive Thinking

30 Sep

It’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday! Welcome and thank you for visiting. Colleen Chesebro is a writer, poet, and book reviewer. She hosts an inspiring event every Wednesday on her blog, Silver Threading, called Writer’s Quote Wednesday. Anyone can participate by choosing a quote by a favorite writer and posting it on your blog. Check out her weekly wrap-up and be inspired by all the quotes.


“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

With a positive attitude we experience pleasant and happy feelings. This brings brightness to the eyes, more energy, and happiness. Our whole being broadcasts good will, happiness and success. Even our health is affected in a beneficial way. We walk tall, our voice is more powerful, and our body language shows the way we feel. – The Power Of Positive Thinking and Attitude


Positive thinking sounds useful on the surface. (Most of us would prefer to be positive rather than negative.) But, “positive thinking” is also a soft and fluffy term that is easy to dismiss. In the real world, it rarely carries the same weight as words like “work ethic” or “persistence.”

But those views may be changing.

Research is beginning to reveal that positive thinking is about much more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude. Positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that last much longer than a smile. – How Positive Thinking Builds Your Skills, Boosts Your Health, and Improves Your work

Positive Thinking is my Super Power

      Hi Cheryl! I don’t think anyone can have a positive attitude all the time, but you can try to see the good in most things. 😉 Thank you for visiting! Have a great weekend! 😀

    I love the Abraham Lincoln quote about roses. I need to practice positive thinking a little more. “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”

    Love the quote! I truly strive to be positive in each moment, sometimes it’s tough, because life is tough. I seriously see a difference in me since: focus.

      Hi! I do get that about you. You’re right, it can be hard at times but being negative isn’t going to make life any easier. I hope you’re having a great weekend! 😀 xx
