The Negative Space of Gratefulness

What is the secret formula for happiness?

In the 2013 film About Time (starring Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson) the men in this family have a secret. They can time travel but only to their own past. Tim's father tells him that the time traveler’s secret formula for happiness is to 'live everyday twice." Live the first day how you normally would, and then go back and live it again. Tim finds that the second time around he is more mindful, and the boring or seemingly unimportant things come to life. What was first a bad day didn't feel that way the second time around and while the events of Tim's day did not change, his outlook did.

Check out the clip:

Let's talk about negative space.

Like Tim’s secret formula, negative space is also about perspective.
