Motivational Quote - The world is full of cactus, but we don't have to sit on it.

SparkPeople's Comments

You forgot to set your alarm, your keys have once again dissolved into the fourth dimension, your car won’t start, your coworkers are driving you nuts, there’s a huge traffic jam on the way home, the dog left you a present on the carpet while you were at work, and you have nothing to make for dinner. And it’s only 5:30pm!! Sometimes it just seems the worst is hot on your trail, and only bad can happen. Unfortunately, it’s true-bad things will happen once and a while; and it can seem as though those misfortunes are all attacking at once. When this situation does come along, you just have to stop what you’re doing and get that racing, negative out of your system. Try going to a place where no one else is (like an empty room or quiet spot outside). Take about ten minutes and just focus on positive aspects of your life. Think about your family, your friends, a great goal you’ve achieved, a recent wedding or birth, your good health or even an award you won. Take that time to tell yourself that whatever is going wrong at that moment, can be fixed. It’s temporary feeling, and in no time at all, things are going to change. It’s not until you convince yourself that things are going to turn around, that things actually WILL start looking up.

Haha--a good one! Often in life, when I encounter a rude, ill mannered individual (because I work with the public)--- I'll whisper to my co-worker, "Well, I don't have to take them home with me"--Pity the poor folks who do live with the miserable meanies. (!)
