Positivity….Alive and well

I recently started to follow her…. The Haunted Wordsmith. Have been loving her posts (in a non-stalker way) so please go on over and check her out. She is having some difficulties with some of her posts being jealous of other posts getting more love. Please spread the love all around.

The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days.
  3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

This is a huge one for me. I have not always been a positive person.

I am unable to explain why that is. I have striven to make everything right and I guess the more I tried for that and fell short, the more that voice in my head told me how much of an idiot I was.

I no longer am like that. I see positives everywhere I look. When someone tells me something negative, I now turn it around and point out the positive. It is a mindset. And I have changed my mindset.

Positivity.  It has changed my life. And I will not ever go back to the negative Nelly I once was.
