There is no such thing as "Right" or "Wrong."
As such, there is no such thing as "Good" or "Bad."
It's all in your head. It's all Perception. It's all in your Attitude.
"When you see beyond 'good' and 'bad,' you are much better able to recognize and make the most of What's There."
Part of applying a Positive Mental Attitude is developing the realization that there is no such thing as a "good" or "bad" experience or thing. Things just Are. The Universe is not out to get you. Life presents us with all sorts of experiences, it is up to us to use those experiences wisely, to our greatest benefit and to aid our growth, or we could let those experiences crumble the world at our feet. All of those trials and tribulations are gifts in disguise, if only we open our eyes and our hearts and receive what they have to offer us.
"Maybe the 'good' things are tests, possibly rather difficult ones at that, and the 'bad' things are gifts to help us grow."
Those "bad" experiences are the ones from which we grow the most, without them our lives would be static and stagnant. So they aren't "bad" after all. They present us with problems to solve and work through, situations to learn from and possibly avoid in the future, habits to change, transformations and self-building needed, conditions to accept, and so forth. In all of these trials, we gain more than what we went in with. They are all part of the process providing us with Wisdom, Truth, Growth, Love, and Happiness.
Once we can push past the concept of these being "good" or "bad" and that they simply do not exist then we become open to what is actually There. We are able to see Things As They Are. And it is a beautiful world full of opportunity and potential.
Good could turn out to be Bad. And Bad could turn out to be Good. It's all in your head. It's whatever you perceive it to be. At the end of our perception, Things just Are. And so, in accepting Things as They Are, life becomes much smoother to simply go along for the ride and take things as they come. Don't so easily jump to thinking some situations are Bad. They are only bad if you make them bad, if you see them as bad, and feel them as bad. Instead recognize that it simply Is and welcome the experience it has to offer. Everything happens for a reason and if you can have a positive attitude towards something, the "bad" will quickly pass and more good things will come along in it's place.
Never allow the power of Positive Thinking to go overlooked. Life is what you make it. Open your eyes and see beyond the concepts of "good" and "bad" and fully accept any experience to provide you with Wisdom, Love, and Happiness.
"'Treat gain and loss as the same.' They mean don't be Intimidated. Don't make a Big Deal of anything--just accept things as they come to you."
