I've been wondering. Are negative people more tired than positive ones? It must be tiring to be a pessimist.
I cannot abide the negative. It's life-energy sucking! It harshes my mellow. I can't help their situation. What I can do, is help MINE. I am positive, most of the time. I am helpful, I am happy (except for 4-5 days a month). *snort*
Trust me, there was a time when it was not all happiness and joy. There was the "before," where everything was drama, and no money to pay bills, and craziness not of my own doing. But I chose to get away from that. I chose to take my kid and take a hike.
The only person I could blame was myself. Yup, I let it happen. Now, I let "Happy" happen.
Hey, new Motto:
It happens if you choose it. Surround yourself with positive people who lift you up. DO what you say you'll do. Be polite. Be nice. Follow the rules; remember the world owes you NOTHING! I am a realist and crappy stuff happens to everyone. Just don't let those moments cloud you and shape your personality into something no one wants to be around. If you don't like it, change it.
