Power of positive

By nature I'm a negative person. Most people would not guess this trait of me though because I speak positivity.

I speak positivity while I'm thinking negative. How screwed up is that? I'll tell ya, it's wastes a lot of energy.

I decided years ago when my Mom was still alive that I'd do my best everyday to think and act positive. i listen to my Mom's negative talk too long and thought how unattractive it sounds. After all, no one likes to hear negative things all day. It's a real downer.

I ordered these cool affirmation cards and I thought I'd share some of them with you.

Dream:
All meaningful change starts in the imagination and works it's way out. Therefore, dream often... and dream big.

Bliss:
Never lose your child's heart.

Any help I can get to think in the positive is a plus.

I'm still a little cynical. Don't hold it against me:)

Oh we are so much alike! Except for my dad is the downer. He's more negative then myself.

I want to change and I do try daily, but it's a struggle!

Okay, can I just say that I'm right there with you!!!!! My mom is the SAME way!!!!! Just like this past weekend...at our wedding reception party.....mom was downing the band lady that we hired to sing! Everyone LOVED her and mom thought she SUCKED!!!! Why couldn't she just keep that to herself? For real? She pissed me off soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad and that is just her way of getting to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She won! I was PISSED!!!!! Down on her same level!!!!!! BAD OF ME!!!!!!

Everyone loved the singer - she even received a booking at our party!!!!!!!

Well, I'm back - I think after this week - my life/our life will get back to what we call "normal"!!!! The wedding is in the past.......now the wedding reception "party" is in the past as well!!!! All of Mr. "S" family is on the road back to Ohio today - they've been with us since last Friday!!!!

I've missed you, missed you, missed you!!!!!!! MISSED YOU!!! I can't wait to catch up on you and Mr "J"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems these days, you have a lot to feel positive about....

One thing I try to remember every day is something my blogging buddy Wendy said..."Shift, and the world shifts with you".

Our happiness starts within us, and radiates out, and it all begins with positive.

You glow, girl. :)

My dad would be negative but then, we'd turn his negatives into a positive by making a negative comment into something funny.

So much to learn from kids where bliss is concerned. I watch Baby Boo getting joy out of hearing the birds outside or petting our puppy or picking a flower. So much joy can't be squashed by negativity.
