Let's get real! Negativity OUT!

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Anyone who knows me personally is well aware of my pessimistic personality, as well as my honesty (aka bluntness). I don't know why, I have just always been direct, and I tend to see things in a negative way before I see the positive OR the negative is a bigger deal to me.

Yes, I'm very much a pessimist, SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, let me be honest right NOW...

I'm SICK of it!!!!!

I would say I have improved over the last three years, this journey has forced myself to use any negative as fuel to produce something positive.
The last year I have done especially better, and I believe my husband would back that up.
I still see and maybe even point it out but I'm NOT letting it bring me down or hold me back anymore.

It's time to get over it! Whatever "it" is for you, blow it off! Life is too short and God is too good to constantly look at the bad or have the "woe is me" mentality.

Let's get real!

Yes... life gets hard.
Yes... crap happens.
BUT it's time to cancel all those freakin pity parties and focus on the good you've been blessed with!!

You're alive, ACT LIKE IT!

I'm tired of spending so much energy dwelling on the negative things going on in my life! I would much rather use that on all the good things going on, even if it seem to be few.

I'm DONE doing it!
No more dwelling on the negatives!
No more listening to any negative people I come in contact with!
I wonder how many have blown ME off because of my pessimistic attitude.
Like I said, life is TOO short... my time here is limited and I don't want to invest anymore being THAT person, that "debbie downer", that "negative nancy".

Cut the crap peeps!
NO more negativity!
NO more feeling sorry for yourself!

Don't risk spending your last day focusing on all the bad, dwell on the blessings!
Take that negative and use it as fuel to DRIVE you in a positive direction!

Negative thoughts, negative people... OUT!

ROCK the positive, peeps!

Much love,

    A to the Men!! Just say "HELL NO" to Negative Nancys & Debbie Downers & say "HELL YEAH" to positive, uplifters!! Just a few years ago, my middle name was "Pessimist." But after fighting the big "C" & winning, it has been permanently been changed to "Survivor!" Nick Vujicic is also a huge motivator for me, too. No excuses!! In the end, it is always our choice. Good on you for making this choice to stay focused & positive! BTW, your journey is so AMAZING!! It gives a running rookie like me so much hope & inspiration!! Keep on running! Peace & God Speed~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    "Your alive act like it" LOL LOVE THIS QUOTE! :)

I find myself at times being negative- but its self negativity towards me. I never focus on what I have or don't have etc. Its those awful little words, im fat, etc. And even when I LOST all the weight, I still saw myself as "fat".
As I was watching the biggest loser last night, things were said, that I was like SERIOUSLY I need to do this for me, but its not just me. Its for my daughter! I want her to see mom exercise and say wow exercise can be fun. etc.

So im getting off my butt and moving, because God blessed me with two arms, two legs, and the ability to move!
