Day 154: Change

DSC_0432

Day 154: Change, it can be a very good thing! Maya Angelou said,”If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

I think all of us knows someone who always complains. This person is a “buzz kill,” never having anything good to say. It gets tiring for those who have to spend time with people like this and it has got to be tiring for the complainer as well!

Why not change your circumstances? It is a win-win for all concerned! Life is too short to be and feel miserable. Happiness is a choice! It is a false assumption that others can make you happy. Only YOU can make YOU happy! Life is full of unfairness and disappointment, but why wallow in your woes, when you can try a smile and see where it leads. It can’t hurt, but it could certainly help. If you wear a smile, you are sure to get positive feedback from others.

I urge you curmudgeons out there to turn that frown into a smile! If you know a curmudgeon, take them out and “kill them with kindness!”

Day 149: Motivate Monday

flax (lg file)

Day 149: Motivate Monday. Here is a motivational quote from pastor Joel Osteen to get your Monday going in an inspirational way, “I believe if you keep your faith, you keep your trust, you keep the right attitude, if you’re grateful, you’ll see God open up new doors.”

Faith, trust, attitude, gratefulness are the positive qualities that give you “a leg up” on your colleagues and peers. They are the qualities that are the ingredients for a successful life.

If we could all have these qualities, the world would be a much better place. These attributes have a way of rubbing off on others. Positivity is infectious! All of us knows a person who is a “curmudgeon.” Just being around someone like this brings us down and we want to get away from him or her. I know I do!

I challenge you to go out there and be that “positive” person and spread your happiness around to as many people as you can! As they say, “kill them with kindness.”

Day 119 of 365: CHOICES

20180214_190643

Day 119: Today’s topic is CHOICES! Life is full of them. You can make good ones or you can make bad ones. The choice is up to you! Life is too short to waste on making bad choices, so why not make good choices?

“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely,” a great quote by Roy T. Bennett.

I am married to a guy that is not always the most positive person in the world.  He does have his happy moments however, but of the two of us, I am the more positive person. Sometimes I wonder about pessimism and how that might affect one’s health? I know that when you do something you enjoy or when you run or exercise that endorphins (feel good chemicals) are released. The outcome is positive on our bodies.

What happens if you are grumpy and a pessimist all the time? It can’t be good on one’s mind, body and spirit! Also it can be a “drag” to be around someone who is a downer all the time, right? I have been witnessing a lot of negativity lately and not just from my husband. It troubles me. I sincerely hope that with this new season of spring that people will take a long hard look at their attitudes. Maybe it is time for an attitude adjustment? It will help you AND those around you!

How is your attitude? Do you know someone who needs an attitude adjustment? Let me know.
