I can do it!

I've noticed lately that I have a tendency to be negative - maybe not overly so, but enough that I'm thinking it's a habit I should try to break. The weird thing is I don't consider myself to be an overly negative person, in fact I've always thought I was more of a 'glass is half full' type of person. What changed?

I don't know, maybe it's that winter has seemed long & cold. Maybe it's that I'm working full time (completely new thing for me) & there's not enough playtime with my sister & her kids
anymore. Maybe it's that one of my closest friends recently moved out of state. Maybe it's a combination of all those things.

Since the plan is to be more positive I guess there's another way to look at things:

  • Yes, it seems like it's been winter forever, but that must mean that spring is near!
  • There are lots of people who are unemployed right now - so I should be happy to even have a job.

  • Having to put more effort out to spend quality time with family will make me appreciate it that much more. Honestly, even when those kids are bad they're adorable (most of the time).

  • Thanks to my friend who moved, I now have a new place to visit.

Okay, so that's my positive spin for the day. That wasn't so hard after all.....
