Every time I hear "ugh, this just isn't going to work." well, frankly, it drives me nuts.
Why not?? Why won't it work? Who says???
I get the whole "I don't wanna be here - this (insert occassion - like a birthday party you'd rather skip) is going to stink"...I admittingly have been the Queen of the party poopers on MANY occassions!
But seriously, when it comes to trying or thinking something new, I can be really upbeat and positive and JAZZED about it!!! and then...other people's negative garbage starts in and I become really annoyed that they burst my positive bubble, especially with those that play "Devil's Advocate"
You know what? Go screw. Leave me alone...leave my positive energy alone because I am tired of being beaten down and having my voice and ideas belittled. There - I said it.
And then....it makes ME negative and grumpy....and sometimes, it is hard to fight against and then I reaaally get in the dumps.
Yup - it's totally someone else's fault.
Nope...not my fault. THEY made me negative.
Fighting a negative is a really hard thing to do. Staying UPBEAT is a battle in and of itself sometimes, especially when others around you are in a constant black hole because of their own issues and you are there dealing and forcing your mouth to stay shut so you don't make more of an issue at hand (the whole mountain out of a molehill expression comes to mind)...because what would a fight about this little thing do?
Well...there is a difference between shutting up & putting up and taking back respect from an individual that is unintentionally bringing you down by actually speaking up....it's just a matter of picking your battles, in many cases.
So that being said....this little bit of blog therapy is done for me....I am determined to remain positive and smiling as much as I can...as I always do, because let's face it....life is too short and this too shall pass. Who knows, maybe a time will come to actually say something without losing my cool and without making a mountain out of a molehill.
Hmmm....maybe I'm being uber-super-sensitive...there is a full moon coming down the pike for Monday! oooOOOEEEEooooooo!!!
