Positive thoughts aren't better than negative ones.

E.g if you're drunk and think 'I'm totally fine, I can drive', that's a positive thought but unhelpful. Negative thinking would be safer.

So, consider if your thoughts are helpful or unhelpful rather than positive or negative

Well Glasgow it was an absolute pleasure. Went on tour with the mobile library, gave out books to Clydebank High pupils, a cooking workshop at Centre 81, a talk with more school pupils, two STV interviews, a short film, ate several donuts and I want to come back already. Thanks♥️
