I try to see the positive, really I do.
For example (as some pointed out) with Cessa's having a cut leg in the winter, at least there is no worry about bugs! :)
But here is a better story to show the power of positive thinking:
There were two little boys.
One was very pessimistic ('P'), the other one was quite the little optimist ('O').
Christmas was coming and the family decided to make a point to the pessimistic boy.
When the presents were opened 'P' had a brand new watch and 'O' had a lump of horse manure.
'P' said "Oh wow, a new watch!" voice dripping with sarcasm "it probably won't even work."
While 'O' gleefully exclaimed "Wow! I ALMOST got a pony!!!"
