More About Attitudes
If you choose to be negative, you live your life in fear, anger and discord. You look for something negative so you can verbally tear it apart. You think that makes you happy.
Have you ever been around when people are talking about others? When they're ripping them apart? How does it make you feel? I mostly feel sad. It sucks the energy out of me. It hurts my spirit. I usually try to insert some positive ideas into the conversation, but that's not always welcome. If possible, I will physically leave. If that's not possible, sometimes I mentally leave. The energy is really just too heavy for me.
Sometimes it's easy to get sucked into some one's drama. I always feel bad about myself when I allow that to happen. I read, "Don't allow other's to pull you into their drama. Instead pull them into your peace." That's what I strive for. Unfortunately sometimes I fall short. But I'll keep trying. I'll also keep trying to have a good, positive attitude.
Remember - attitudes are contagious so make yours worth catching.
