“The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.” -Albert Einstein
Most people when asked, "How are you?" or “What’s up?” they instinctively and without much thought respond "good." Instead, I've gotten in the habit of asking people, "Anything positive happen to you lately?" This gives a whole new meaning to “What’s UP?” This forces them to think about why they’re good by counting their blessings. Likewise you can choose to think about the bad or think about the good. This isn’t to dismiss the bad as though it doesn’t exist, rather you are intentionally being thankful for the good. So what’s UP?!
Friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse (Philippians 4:8, MSG).
