Life is Too Short for All That Negativity

I’m trying to think positively. I have an amazing life, so why is it that I sometimes find myself being so negative. I’m trying to get back into the habit of counting my blessings each night and thanking God for all that I’ve been given.

I want to fill my life with more positive thoughts and more positive people. If you’re a downer, I just don’t have space for you right now. We’ll have to pick up on our relationship later.

My husband and my father are both extremely lighthearted, easy going people who definitely smile more often than they frown. I wish their happiness would rub off a little more on me.

I think it’s just in their blood. They both wake up happy. My dad says you have to look at what you have rather than what you don’t. He greets the day with a smile, because he considers the alternative; not waking up at all.

Every so often I have to remind myself of such things. I have to stop waiting for the next thing to happen and relish in what’s happening right now. After all, nothing in life is guaranteed, so you might as well make the most of what you’ve been given. I’ve been given A LOT in life so I really shouldn’t have any excuses.

For all the things that have happened to me and that I have done that I regret, if they led me to where I am now....I wouldn't change a thing.

Oh what the heck. Be yourself instead. I mean, if they're light-hearted and you're not, maybe you balance each other out? If life were all dark we couldn't see anything, but if it were all light with no shadows, there'd be no definition or shading. Both are necessary.
