Just incase you are wondering, yes, I am feeling a little bit better.
Now, on to the point.
I am definitely not the most positive person in the world, I don't try to hide that. I consider myself not so much negative (yes, maybe I am in denial) but more realistic. I don't sugar coat much, if anything and I don't hide behind rose-colored glasses. Sometimes my outlook makes people laugh. Sometimes it affects me more than I'd like to admit. Sometimes I let it get me down. WAY down.
In catching up on blogs, I've had some time to reflect. I've read posts about the what ifs and mantras and have thought about the issues I am having at work and asked myself, "what do I do now?".
I have really just one thing to say. Sparkles, Sunshine, Rainbows, and Unicorns. If something isn't going my way, or if I get in a "mood", I just repeat it. Sparkles, Sunshine, Rainbows, and Unicorns. It's my new mantra. Fake it 'til you make it, right? I am trying hard to have a more positive demeanor. Trying REAL hard. I have 35 years of cynical thinking to undo. What can I say? One day at a time!
I was somewhat inspired by a South Park (Season 11) episode called "The List". I'm a back and forth watcher. Sometimes I am in the mood, sometimes they take it too far. This episode CRACKS me up. I tried to find a clip on YouTube but looks like the South Park peeps have that on lock down. If you have Netflix, just watch it. Yes, there are inappropriate words. But you will laugh. I hope.
PS - HAPPY FRIDAY EVE!
