The glass is half full

Today is a good day.  I find I am having more and more good days, with better overall attitude.  It really is a mindset.  Get up and tell yourself its going to be a good day.  When life offers you a choice, take the positive one - especially if that choice is an emotional one.

Its so much more fun to be happy than sad.  While I've always considered myself an optimist, I haven't always portrayed myself that way and I'm trying more and more every day to put forth the image I have in my mind.  Its not always easy, but more and more I'm succeeding.

And I love it.

I am not naturally an optimist by any means. But I am surrounded by so much negativity, and have seen so many people just swamped in nastiness, that I will do anything to NOT be that way. I try to take a deep breath and focus on my life and what makes me happy, even with the world falling down around me :) I refuse to give so much power to negativity and negative people.
