    Becoming A Better You.

    It has not always been easy,especially when you find out that  you are your own motivator.I also do believe that circumstances should not define who you are and therefore you should strive to make the very best of yourself even in the midst of all havoc.Putting on a smile even...

    I think everyone should try to be positive and sometimes its very hard.   But the harder it is the more I try because I know that seeing things positively has a gargantuous affect on my health and well being.

    Positive At Work

    I try to make a positive out of a negative but when faced with favoritism and what seems that I am the black sheep of the office, I am positive that I cannot change things and I need to find another job.

    What you put into the universe will come to you,

    so if we stop thinking of life as a glass half empty, but rather , half full. We have so much to be grateful for, if we took a moment to appreciate it. Anything is possible in the mind of a pisitive thinker.

    Sometimes I'm sad. Sometimes I'm really sad.

    Sometimes I smile because I don't know what the hell is going on. I'm hurt, I take a nap. I wake up, I'm still hurt. I laugh, for no reason. Crying is not a weakness. I cry. I cry and laugh. It's silly. I laugh not because it's funny, it's ridiculous. I try, I give up. I get...

    There will alwayes be someone

    who looks down on your positive outlook. Don't let that attitude bother you. Simply look beyond these people and let them wallow in their past and unhappiness. They will not change until they are ready.
