Venting about what’s wrong with the world has its place. We all need to occasionally let our misery steam evaporate into the ether.

But as much of a relief as it can feel in the moment, that feeling doesn’t last. Venting our frustrations just for the sake of venting doesn’t solve anything.

Worse, negativity kills our creativity and enthusiasm. And it’s like napalm for our well-being and health.

The antidote to negativity is gratitude. And it’s within everyone’s reach.

Negative and grateful thoughts can’t occupy our thinking at the same time.

In the end, it’s a choice. If not always easy.
