I had another person tell me today that they love my daily positive posts. I get this a lot. I don’t mean to encourage everyone, but it just happens! Haha!
They even commented to day that they are kind of jealous. I wasn’t sure what to say then, but thinking back …I’m kind of confused. Why be jealous of my attitude when YOU TOO CAN HAVE HAPPY POSTS!?! (said in my best telemarketing voice)
I know that happiness is a bit of an obsession to me and sometimes I need to be brought back to reality a little, but that is why I married the pessimist I did. I don’t want that to sound negative at all, because I promise, I do not mean it negatively at all. What I mean is… God allowed me to have a husband who truly completes me. O my, that sounds a bit cliche thanks to that Tom Cruise movie where they also said “Show me the money!” …but seriously–I’M BEING SERIOUS. My husband doesn’t wake up seeing sunshine and sprinkles. I’m not saying he’s an unhappy person–he’s just not as much of a hyper crazy enthusiastic smiler as I am. When I say he completes me, I mean, he kind of takes up the slack on the end I lack on–and I certainly think and hope that I always do the same thing for him.
Anyway, going back to my first point…
There’s no reason to be jealous of someone who can look on the bright side, find the good in circumstances and love at all times. Just try and be more of an optimist and look more to the joy of this life. Don’t get stuck in the unhappy and ugly things we tend to see in this world. God put so many things here for us to look at that are far from those things. As I said before, I know I have to get a reality check at times (thank You God for giving me Bobby as my “other half” to do that for me), but most all the time and in every situation there is something that can lighten the mood, make the moment less gloomy and allow us to become a creator of
Go for it!
