I was thinking, as I was out for my walk yesterday, about attitude. And how to have a more positive one. I don’t want to be a rah-rah cheerleader type, or someone that constantly sees everything through rose-colored glasses. I mean come on, the truth is the truth and sometimes it ain’t pretty. Doesn’t make it less true. And some situations, or days, or even people, just suck. Reality is reality. But how I can I be more positive and silence the negative voices?
I figure that attitude is like a muscle. You use it and it gets strong (positive or negative). You ignore it and it grows weak. So maybe I have to exercise my positive attitude the way I do my legs, and arms, and abs? But just as important, why do SO many people chose to exercise and strengthen the negative attitude instead of the positive?
And like starting any new exercise program, there is bound to be some pain. A LOT of pain. And setbacks. And days I want to quit. But just like when I started running, I will keep trying and eventually it will get easier.
PS: This does NOT mean I will be less snarky and sarcastic. I am POSITIVE I will still be snarky and sarcastic. But with a nicer tone of voice!
