Positivity

No weekend recap from me since my weekend isn't over. It's a long weekend here, so I have the day off today. Yaaaas! It's also not lost on me that there is another long weekend next week - I could easily get used to the no work on Monday thing. So instead of a weekend recap I thought I'd pop in and share the above quotes that I stumbled upon on Pinterest (sidenote: for all those who follow me on Pinterest I confess that I pin all the things)

I've always been a positive person. Throughout my youth and into adulthood its the one thing people always notice about me. My friend Nadiya calls me the "eternal optimist". I've just never been a whiner or complainer - I'd rather find a solution to the problem and fix whatever is bothering me. That said, in the last year so much crap has happened that I allowed that to change and more recently, I've found that I've let little things get to me. I mean really little things like the car having no gas on a morning or forgetting to bring something upstairs and having to go back for it or a line at the bank were tripping me out. Literally everything was frustrating me to the point where I was at the brink of a "woe is me" attitude. 

But that just isn't me. 

Nor do I want it to be me. 

I like to have fun, I like to smile and cause others to smile and in spite of bad days, I actually do know that it doesn't mean that life itself is bad and that my worst day would be appreciated by so many. So those two quotes hit me.

Its Monday, the dreaded first day of the week and a little positivity never hurt. So here I am sharing these two quotes that have woken my positive spirit up. Yup, I'm sprinkling positive dust on all of you! Because didn't you know that "positive dust" exists? 

Ok enough seriousness for today, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my long weekend and I hope you all have the best day!  

Have a great Monday!!

  5. I hate whining. A lot. I don't listen to it and I don't engage in it as a practice. When I do, I snap myself out of it ASAP. Enjoy your three day weekend!

  6. Happy long weekend! I needed these quotes in my life today - yesterday I was in a terrible mood and could not snap out of it! I found myself complaining about the type of bread at the restaurant, how slow people were walking, how annoying it was to replug the vacuum in every room... I'm showering in that positive dust now!

  9. I've never really been an optimist - I prefer to be surprised rather than disappointed, I guess? With that said, even if I don't have the sunniest outlook on things, I don't think of myself as a negative person and I do NOT complain about things. As I've gotten older I always try to look at the bigger picture and to put myself in the other person's shoes. Sometimes things come up that I'll vent to Ben or a close friend about but I don't make it a habit of complaining. Especially in public, that drives me crazy! I hate listening to other people's negativity. Thanks for spreading some positivity today :)

  10. Love it! I get told I exude positivity as well and its something I take pride in!

  11. We all have our moments of "this sucks" when we wallow a bit, but the key is to make sure it doesn't become your life. Or your personality. To vent when you need to vent, and then pick up the pieces and move on to all the amazing and incredible things about this life. Sounds like you're doing that. Proud of you. Have a great week :)

  12. I let the little things get to me sometimes too and I hate when that happens because I try to remain positive and not whine about things. I pinned the others wish they had my bad day quote just the other day myself! I think we all need that reminder sometimes. I think if you are having a bad day, it is ok to vent (sometimes you just need to!!!) but to also look for the positive in the day as well! I hope you enjoy your short week!

  13. i love this post girl. i'm the opposite of you, always been a negative person. i've gotten better over the years, but after a couple of not so great things in the last couple of weeks, i have been letting it get me down. so i really needed that positivity dust today.

  17. Great post! Being positive just makes life better in so many different aspects. Too much negativity is just exhausting! I hope you're enjoying your Monday off!

  18. Awesome post! A positive reminder (and positivity dust) is always good. I'm always of the mindset that I want to keep things in perspective. We all can get annoyed, frustrated, or negative sometimes. But, I try to remind myself that life could be worse...there are people fighting so many more terrible battles in their life, that I can re-group and re-focus and not get some negative. Thanks for sharing!
