All the positivity of yesterday left me to think of where else I could be a more positive person. I started by spreading the love to my husband. Just a quick text while he was at working telling him how much I appreciate him (his response? "Who is this?". That's my husband, geez!). And then I decided to challenge myself. What fun is a challenge to others, after all. So here for the next week I will not speak a negative word. Not when my husband does something annoying, not when my son spills his milk for the 500th time of the day, not when I'm mad at myself for wasting my own time! No negativity on my blog, on my facebook, or my home away from home online. 7 days...no negativity. I'm a sarcastic person so this should be interesting!
And now from some good ol' quotes from the best author ever, Dr. Seuss.
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alike who is youer than you"
I know who I am and I am the youest me, and thankfully no one can change that. Well, except for me of course!
And last quote there Serenity Prayer. I want to start by saying that in a rough patch in my past I learned the Serenity Prayer and it brought me more hope than any prayer I've ever heard. But just now for the first time I read the entire prayer and I don't even think there are words...
I tried to change other people yesterday and therein lies my mistake. I cannot change the negativity and hate in the world. I will change myself and hope that I can lead by example. I do appreciate every single person that participated in every single Spread the Love contest and I hope that maybe we accomplished something big today.
Signing off from my blog for a bit and reorganizing my facebook to make it what I want. Changes to come, but only things I am courageous enough to change.
