Staying Positive in the Face of Adversity

**NOTE: I actually wrote this on May 25, 2011, but I’m just now getting around to typing it out. **
During my journey thus far, I’ve learned that I have a large network of incredibly supportive people in my life. On the flip side, I’ve also noticed a small group of people who are inherently negative in my life. Some of these negative people I must learn to deal with because they cannot simply be excluded from my life. Sometimes it can be extremely challenging and taxing to encounter these people. When dealing with negativity, I try my hardest to remain positive and not allow myself to feed into it. I have to constantly remind myself how far I’ve come and everything I’ve accomplished. Not only that, but also that my journey is a continuous one which is always evolving. Sometimes the bumps in the road can help us to better understand who we are and make us stronger people. So, here’s a big fat THANK YOU to all of the negative people in my life. Without you, I wouldn’t be who I am today and I certainly wouldn’t be the strong, confident woman I’ve become.
