So I’m going to cop to a bad habit.
I can be really, really bitchy. Combine that trait with a fast mouth fueled by arguments and agitation, and I can get really mean, really quick.
I’m not like that always – I’m actually pretty much the opposite – but man, when I get hot, I get hot, and I can be downright vicious.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve discovered that my mean streak only comes out when I’m surrounded by negative people.
Want to pick on me? Okay, but I can pick back twice as hard. Want to debate the pros and cons of gay marriage? Go for it, but you probably won’t win. That kind of thing. And that’s why it’s become really important to me to stay positive, despite the floating negativity that I may or may not walk into every now and then.
At the end of the day, it’s important to stay positive because negativity does not serve you.
Positivity is something that I think about every day, so I decided to dip my toes in the idea of starting a new blog series (and maybe eventual link up): Positive Thursdays. It comes after Wednesday, it’s right before Friday, why not celebrate it with some good thoughts?!
Come back next week, when this gets going for real. Jeez. I feel like we should get some inspirational music going, or something.
