    Shame On Those That Do

    Life is too short to not see all the beauty around us and to take time out and enjoy a few sunsets or even sunrises. When was the last time you held a baby and felt that all was right with the world at that moment. To see the Rose as it blooms and smell it's fragrance. To enjoy a...

    I'm a really positive person.

    I've a really good life & it's unusual when I think about the future or past. I've heard some people try hard to be like this. Sing more. Read more. Exercise more. Stress less.

    Some Times You Have To Try

    I am not an optimist...far from it.  Sometimes I am as crabby as can be and embrace the "whoa is me" attitude.  I am not proud of it.  But, I am aware that I am allowing myself to drown in my own sorrow and then I pick back up and proceed.  I don't let negativity dictate my...

    I'm tired of your negativity.

    From now on i will focus on the positive, and leave you to your negativity. Life is too short to always be frowning, and getting angry all the time. You may be older and my mother, but that doesn't mean you're wiser. No disrespect.

    I'm Not Even Sure What That Means.

    Negative thoughts? Negative deeds? People who treat us badly?Whatever it means, I choose to look for the good, instead of concentrating on the bad. Bad things happen daily; but so do good things.Which do you want to spend your time thinking about?

    How Does That Benefit Me?

    A friend of mine is always so amazed at how fast my emotions like anger, annoyance, upset and disappointment go through me; how I don't linger with negative thoughts and don't really stand up against someone who seems to be negative just to bait someone in. I have better things...

    Five Minutes

    This is the time... I would  allow myself to shed the tears keep falling down for something bad, let my heart do a dance of sad loneliness and accept dark thoughts take place in my mind. Because more than five minutes would make me lose time that I don’t have.  And less than...
