One's attitude regarding circumstances and people depends upon their attitude and what they are looking for...positive things or negative things,
A woman with a beautiful rose garden has two neighbors...one an optimist and the other a pessimist.
She invites the optimist over to have cookies..the optimist looks out her large window and states: "what a beautiful rose garden you have", eats some cookies then leaves.
The neighbor then invites the pessimist over....She looks out the window and states,"your window certainly is dirty!"

Focusing on the negative keeps us from being grateful about the positiveAfter everyone in the room has had a sufficient time period to look for everything in the room that is red, ask them to close their eyes. Then ask them to keep their eyes closed and tell them they can raise their hand if they can name the yellow items in the room.
Most will not be able to name anything unless they are wearing the color themselves. Of course any color can be used.
Does that mean that the color did not exist when they were looking around? Of course not.
