Negative thinking has a way of sapping away a person’s self-worth and distorting a person’s view of the world. It also has a tendency of poisoning everything in that person that’s good and decent. Fortunately, that’s a process that can be stopped with a little bit of positive thinking. Positive thinking, when properly applied with purpose, can help a person feel better about themselves and can make them feel like the best version of themselves. And that’s why Positive Thinking Day is such an important day. This unofficial holiday falls on the 13th of September and is designed to help everyone replace their negative thinking with more positive thoughts.
