Dash the Negativity

It seems like I've had nothing but negative things to say on my blog lately. I always seem to be complaining about work, baby daddy, or other more random things and have neglected to reflect on my many blessings.

A good friend of mine is a firm believer that negative thoughts create more negativity and that makes sense to me - in a way. I mean, some things are going to suck no matter what, but I think that a positive attitude can go a long way towards mitigating the effects of sucky circumstances.

That being said - I'm going to endeavor to find those elusive silver linings in my rainclouds. I'm going to make lemonade out of lemons. I'm going to turn my frown upside down. After all, it's SPRING! The flowers are blooming, the weather is starting to warm up and (most importantly) I'm finished with my home improvement projects!

I'm going to get my camera back out and start taking more pictures. I'm going to finish knitting that baby afghan that I started back in January and maybe start a new project. Muffin and I are going to plant some seeds and see what happens.

I feel better already!

How refreshing to read, as I'm sitting here, silently bitching about 34 things. Good for you! Look forward to pictures!

First off: LMMFAO @ Samsmama!

What's that saying? When life hands you lemons add vodka..now that some shit to live by. ;-)

Congrats on finishing up with those pesky home improvement projects! I still have a shit ton to do...so I am captain envious over here.

Planting flowers will be great way to kick of spring..and everyone loves pictures...snap away!

we all have our neg moments...and I hope that the positivity works for you...maybe I will try some too...later....or someday ;)

you know, I believe the same thing. You get back what you give out...just try to stay positive. Even on those days that you just can't win.
I'll tell you though- its hard to stay 'up' when you're stripping wallpaper and dealing with subcontractors...I know.

Thank you for that post. I've had a trying few weeks and it's starting to get me down. Your post (and the comment about lemons and vodka - yum) were just what I needed to set me back on track.
