If you can read these words, you can read (words) and therefore clearly have had an education. The simple act of remembering and feeling grateful for this is an example of positive thinking! If you’re not sitting on your chair crying so much right now (the tears streaming down, they’re falling… falling), well that’s something positive too! And if you’re not in a war or something else bad, then that is also positive (positive thinking)! Finally, if you aren’t engaged in an ongoing feud with some crappy new cat who won’t love you properly in the right ways all the time, then maybe could you try to think positively about that? It’s certainly clear that your life is better than mine right now. I should say at this point that I really do have it very, very tough.
So this post is about positive thinking. Positive thinking means very carefully being positive. It’s the opposite of negative thinking, negativity, and bad.
“Wait, so what is all this about ‘negative thinking’ Pattie?”
Negative thinking is focusing on what you don’t have (money, fame, cars, slippers, beautiful women, ok hair and garlic), as well as on the bad stuff you do have (maybe huge anxieties, crippling waves of the blues, possibly actual depression, lasting boredom, stress that paralyses you daily, and certainly: a life-long sense of dread).
There is no doubt a lot to feel low about in this world.
The fortunate few are the ones who haven’t actually noticed this yet. They are genuinely living without seeing the truth, and they are the dweebs already think positively. The rest of the world are called: all the other people.
“So how do I know which type of person I am?”
Here’s a little questionnaire to help you decide! Simply answer yes or no to the questions below, and find out once and for all if you are a positive or a negative person!
- Are you very positive (a positive person)?
- Do other people think you’re a positive person?
- Do you think you’re a positive person?
- Do you not mainly think negatively?
- Are you not a negative man? Or a negative woman?
- Are you usually interpreting the world positively?
- Do you tend to interpret the world positively (some of these questions are the same questions)
If you mainly answered yes: then congratulations and get lost!
If you mainly answered no, then you are dark-minded, negative and probably sad.
I am very sorry for you, and I hope you’re ok these next few days before I do my next post, in which I will solve all your problems for you, for good, for now.
Chin up everyone!
And lots of love, Pattie xxxx

Feel so shy about writing again Like a lady on a first date, with a massive man. I’m going to do a new video post soon once my face calms down. I’ve been wearing four layers of make-up and a cool balaclava. Nearly got arrested in the protests by a policeman last week! I had a truncheon handy though, so I got away. Beat them at their game! And anyway, I’d only popped out to by a pint of milk from a Westminster milk vendor. I wasn’t even protesting! I don’t read the news, though I do disagree with the proposed top up fees. Pay as you go is always a better deal in the end. My mum (Karen) and I speak every night and we never use up all our minutes. I think it’s cos we use skype. Usually I have nearly 1000 minutes remaining every month. One day I’m going to use up all my roll over minutes on a special new friend. Contact me if you would like this to be you
