Is it necessary?

All the negativity in this world…

Seems like everything these days is based around negativity.  It seems like everyone is bashing Obama or our government in general; gossiping about who’s pregnant or who cheated on their husband or who they were seen with and well…surely that means they’re up to no good. :(  It makes me sad.


Is it worth it?...

I don’t think so.  We live such a short life, do you really want to fill it with all the negatives?  I don’t.  It’s awesome to see what a reaction you can get from a stranger by smiling at them, holding the door for them or just simply asking if they need any help. 

Is it worth being angry at your friend for not calling you back when they said they would, when in all reality they probably got busy and forgot or it got too late…instead it would be much more pleasant for you to get together and play some cards.


Try it…

For the next week (start small) make it a goal of yours to

**smile at 1 new person a day 

**think twice before you say a negative comment about anyone or anything…is it THAT important?

**hug a family member, friend or stranger at LEAST once a day


I think all of these things are important to living a happier life for you and everyone you come in contact with. 

It’s Friday, enjoy yourself.  Live life to the fullest and take advantage of every pleasant moment you get.

  1. I agree! I've often thought about why people are so drawn to negativity. You're right, it's everywhere. It seems like the new normal to most people. I think it is a lot harder to accept other people's faults without judgment than to make yourself feel better(about yourself) by belittling them. Selfish and a waste of perfectly good time.
