Today did you hear someone talk about how much they hate someone? Or how much someone wants to die? Or maybe it was even you, saying that you totally just failed that test in Algebra 2.

Our society today is surrounded by negativity.

Wouldn’t you rather live in a world with limited hate, stereotypes and more acceptance?

Positivity is a choice. Only you can choose the way you live.

I like to send PSAs to not only bring others up, but bring myself up too.

My thing is — how is your negativity going to improve the way you feel, act or carry yourself?

Here are some PSAs to help when you’re feeling those negative vibes:

Life is too short to be negative.

Yesterday is gone and you’re never getting it back.

Today you have to live that day and make it the best you can.

Don’t worry about tomorrow because tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.

Worry about tomorrow once it becomes today.

Make someone’s day by saying ‘hi’, a small wave or a quick smile.

Don’t reject yourself but accept yourself

It’s up to you. What do you choose?
