I worry I’m becoming too negative, too whiny. Most of my posts lately seem to be rants and worries and anxieties – not enough happiness. And in life, I think I’ve been focusing too much on the things that annoy me, or that stress me out – instead of looking for the positives, the happy things. I don’t want to be a grumpy, bitter woman. I want to be known to be smily and happy and full of positivity.
For this reason, I have (as of half-a-minute ago) instituted a new rule for myself.
For every negative thought or thing I may want to whine or rant about, I will stop and think of three positive things about the situation.
After all, despite’s life problems, I have lots to be happy for. I have the most amazing husband in the whole world. I have two absolutely gorgeous nieces. I have good friends. I have faith and a hope for the future. I am relatively healthy. I have a beautiful house. I have a good job that pays ridiculously well, and I only have to work two days a week. I could go on and on.
I need to start focusing on the positive. I need to be a happier person. I need to enjoy the beauty of life’s moments, instead of thinking of what could have been, should have been… Each day has its joys and I must take the time to be thankful for them.
I am going to be a ‘glass-is-half-full’ person. ♥
