LET’S REINSTATE POSITIVE VOCABULARY

It’s an interesting fact that English contains many more negative words than positive ones. I counted 648 synonyms for the word BAD, but only 282 for the word GOOD!

Our happiest words are those that make us smile, allowing us to laugh, also at ourselves.

There are marvelous words in the English lexicon,… just waiting to be discovered and reinstated.
