I am generally a happy person with a positive attitude.
Is my life perfect? Hell no! My family has it’s issues, just like most families. There are things I worry about privately.
I wake up every morning with a few aches and pains. By the amount of over the counter pain reliever we sell at work, I think most people do!
I believe that every day I wake up is a good day! Really, that is one step in the right direction!
If I am having a bad day, I admit it. I announce to those around me that I am CRANKY, and I apologize in advance for any snarkiness! I had a day like that this week. I was not feeling great physically, and I was letting things that happened around me to make me not feel so great mentally! It was a really long day!
I got home and had a LONG talk with myself!
I like to spend time with people who are happy and have a positive attitude, but sometimes we have NO choice but to be around people who have the ability to bring us down. I think we all have one or two (or more), people in our workplace, school or even family!
You know “that” person that I am talking about, the one that you have learned to not ask “How are you today?”, because you will get a long list of ailments, or complaints. They choose to be NEGATIVE.
I can’t really help how those people are feeling, but I can CONTROL how I let them make me feel!
There are times when I wish I could give them subliminal messages about happiness and positive attitude.
Here are some messages I would share with them if I could!
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life and share with the people the same happiness.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
