Staying positive when bad things happen

Ever feel as though things just aren’t going your way, or you are having a string of bad luck, or that you are having a rough week?  Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ve been at times a pretty pessimistic type of person.  But I’ve been trying to stay positive lately, just seems to be hard when things continue to go in a down direction for a period of time.  This seems to be true in sports, relationships, even just in pure everyday tasks like getting your car fixed for one thing, then 2 days later, something else goes wrong.  How does one stay positive?

I try to look at the positive side of things by looking forward to something, by thinking about some goal I’m trying to achieve, or simply by trying to relax with a nice cup of tea enjoying a TV show, or reading up on something that puts me in a better mood.  I’d love to know how everyone else feels about this and how people stay positive.
