The Glass Is Half Full…. Damn It!
I am an eternal optimist. No Joke. I look on the bright side of EVERYTHING, EVERYTIME, no matter what the situation. It’s just how I am wired.
In a world full of pessimists, glass half empties, and black clouds I continue to spread my special “fairy dust of optimism” wherever I go. I see absolutely no point in always looking at what can go wrong. It’s not even a conscious decision on my part, it is my constant view on the world.
It’s in my nature to automatically trust people until given a reason not to, and although I have been hurt by some of those people, I am happy to say that for the most part I have been right. You don’t have to earn my trust, you get it on day one once I accept you into my inner circle. Isn’t that a nice thought? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were just a few more people out there that thought like that? I think so, but that’s just me.
All that being said, I should point out that once you do hurt me, I have the wonderful ability to completely, absolutely, irreversibly cut you out of my life FOREVER! No looking back, no second thoughts, you are gone. Extreme? Some may think so, but I believe that my ability to disconnect from the bad in my life allows me the peace that I enjoy.
My motto is: “Why worry about something until it happens? Because worrying about it will not change the outcome”. See, I have just freed myself of hours, days, weeks, and months of stress by knowing that I have done what I need to do- all that I can do- and the rest is just in the waiting.
Now, if you are the opposite of me I accept that. I am surrounded by people that I love every day of my life who are the total opposite of me. My husband is an eternal pessimist, but we joke that the reason why we are so perfect for each other is that he is the Yin to my Yang. LOL. I am constantly trying to show him the bright side of any given situation, giving him hope and some peace to reduce the stress he is putting on himself. I have been told that I am a very calming presence to be around, and I hope that’s true. I know that it works in my house.
So, the next time you are faced with the opportunity to look on the bright side why not give it a try. If you cannot find the bright side message me and maybe we can find it together.
A little about me…… I’m a princess……yes, a real live princess….. I have a purse, shoe, and book obsession. I’m a borderline animal hoarder with 2 dogs, and 4 cats, and I’m also a House Cat, living in paradise with the love of my life aka Mr. Sexy Pants. I can’t stand hot weather……… love when it’s cold outside, and I’m emotionally high maintenance requiring LOTS of attention. I only sing in the car, not the shower, and always by myself…… Last, but not least………I drive a little red hot rod Hyundai (yes I know, don’t say it), her name is Scarlett and I’m sure we will be pulled over by some bored police officer near you very soon.
