Can you "positive think" your way to a more enjoyable life? Yes, you can. (See how positive I was?)
Meaghan Murphy is the author of "Your Fully Charged Life." Her new book is a roadmap to flipping the switch on negativity. Meaghan is a positivity pro now. But, she wasn't always so optimistic.
Her nickname was Grumpy as a kid due to her perpetual negativity on everything from going to Disneyland to playing soccer.
A tragic experience as a teenager sent Meaghan down a career path in journalism as a magazine writer.
She's currently the editor-in-chief of "Woman's Day," one of the most popular magazines on newsstands that reaches 18 million readers a month. Previously, she worked at magazines including "YM," "Teen People," "Cosmopolitan" and "Good Housekeeping."
Meaghan says it's not about looking at the bright side. It's about looking at ALL sides.
