    I Try To Be

    I learned a long time ago that negetivity gets you nowhere in life and is detrimental to a person's self-confidence. Besides that's just not who I am or would like to be. Sure, everyone has their bad days, but I've learned that you just suck it up and get over it.

    Don't Agree

    Me and sad don't agree. I don't get along with grumpy either but do get along much better with happy, crazy and hyper. Hehehe, it's like the seven dwarfs!! But I missed out Sneezy, Dopey, Doc and Bashful. Poor fellows!!

    I believe we create our own realities with what

    resonates from our powerful hearts. If we resonate joy, then we attract more circumstances to create even more joy.

    I keep my head up, and try my best.

    Even when I get that nagging feeling in my chest trying to bring me down, I do what I need to to to get it out, and keep going.

    Surprisingly, despite my current miserable

    state. I've been through the worst, lifeless year in my life so far. But I still think "I'm happy to be alive in such a rich, vast world."

    Generally, Yes

     I have even been described as "bubbly," which scares the sh*t out of me, quite frankly. ~Jennie

    Truly

    I really am a happy person.  I have had a very difficult year and my old happy self has taken a bit of a back seat. I am hoping to be able to welcome her back again properly soon, I can tell she is waiting just around the corner.  I've certainly missed her.
