Focusing on the positive is a wonderful start. Share good news and happy events with the people who love you - spread the joy!
Notice the beauty around you - laughing children, cute animals, flowers (in the shops.. can't wait till their in our gardens!), sunsets. Pay more attention to those things than to the less-than-lovely things you see.
When we have a negative experience, we can ask ourselves some questions to try to see things from a different perspective. Did I handle things in a way that makes me proud? What did I learn about my strengths from this experience? What did I learn over all?
Life is about learning and growing, and every experience is an opportunity to develop or hone new skills.
