For the last few months I've been trying to keep my attitude positive.  Instead of complaining about things I can not change, I try and look at the bright side.  I find when I stop and think about things they become a little more clear.  Here are a few complaints I've muttered in the last couple months:

Complaint #1: I hate my job!
Reality Check:  I could be unemployed and not know how I was going to pay my bills

Complaint #2: I'm not married.
Reality Check: I could be in a loveless or abusive marriage

Complaint #3: There is nothing in the refrigerator that I feel like eating.
Reality Check: I could be digging through the garbage looking for scraps of leftover food

Complaint #4: I wish I lived in a nicer house or drove a nicer vehicle
Reality Check: I could be homeless without a vehicle to drive at all.

Complaint #5: I wish I didn't have to get up so early.
Reality Check:  I could not be waking up at all.

I guess if you look at the bright side, our problems don't really look that big.  I know I could be a lot worse off, so today I'm just going to be thankful!


  1. I get like that sometimes. At time you've got to look on the positive side. Keep your chin up darling. xo

  2. I should do this! Think we all tend to be drama queens instead of looking at the bright side, congrats for choosing positivism!
