Adult rule 2. be positive

I am positive it is better to be positive. You can sit around and worry about the what if’s or be unhappy about whats not, but what’s the point? I mean really what does that accomplish? Nothing, you just end up feeling crummy. This goes back to my thoughts on living intentionally. My intention is to be happy so it is something that I work on. Here are a few thoughts and ways I work on being positive.

I have learned that there is a whole heck of a lot of which I have no control over. Because I have no control over it there is no need for me to worry about. I will give you some examples. I have no control over how other people feel or perceive me. Now this doesn’t mean that I am not responsible for my words or actions. It is not ok to be mean to someone and then say “i’m not responsible for how you feel”. Well at least in my world it is not. Anyway I am responsible for treating others with respect and dignity and kindness etc, but I am not responsible for how they feel about me. A further example is me being a Witch. If someone has a notion of what a Witch is and is not willing to base it on the reality of how I live my life then that is on them. Furthermore I just don’t care and I don’t have to spend my time worrying or feeling bad or negative over other people. I don’t have to get caught in that negativity I can choose how I want to feel. I like feeling positive much better.

Another way to get rid of negativity for me is to avoid things that are negative if possible. For me I don’t watch the news. It is a parade of unhappy stuff that I have no influence over. I can’t fix it and I don’t need to be bummed out by it so I don’t watch it. Speaking of TV there is this show that Hubby has watched on TV with Penn and Teller and they take some theory or idea and complain about it and try to rip wholes in the theory WITHOUT offering solutions. Blah! I hate that. Why spend all that time gripping? What is it accomplishing?  So I avoid that sort of “entertainment” as well.

The really cool thing about life is that I get to choose how I live it. I can choose how I feel about it. No it is not always easy to be positive. I certainly have things that make me sad or not feel good, but I don’t have to dwell on them. I can choose to focus on the positive. Focusing on the positive  makes a differences in my day and the day of everyone around me. I can choose to be happy and smile and think about all my blessings in life. I can choose. and I choose to be positive.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
