Staying positive is Sophie’s mantra in life. Ever since we pulled her out of a dingy little shelter, we’ve been working on staying positive with her. The more we praise her, encourage her, and reward her, the better she is. And shockingly, it’s the same for most everyone. The more optimistic you are, the better off you generally are. Think about it – even if you have a bad day where things don’t go right, you’re much better off at the end if you’ve seen the good in what seemed like only bad. Granted, not everything can be sugar coated or improved with a little optimism, but life is so much more enjoyable when you’re positive!
And if all else fails, go hug a dog. It works!
