I read here a list/description of eight things positive people do differently-
Positive people find something to look forward to every day, they celebrate the small stuff, they're kind, they stay busy, accept responsibility for their actions, forgive themselves, know when to move on, and resist comparisons
I would say that most of these are true of me. I'm not sure of the "resist comparisons" thing. I don't compare myself with others very often but once in a while I do. There are times when I just sit and think... not busy ALL the time. Forgiving myself is difficult too sometimes.
Which action on the list would you say you do regularly? Which action could you add to your life to give you a more positive outlook? If you're a positive person, what's something you do regularly that's not on the list?
I regularly look forward to another day. I definitely celebrate the small stuff. I think I am kind to others. I take responsibility for my actions. I forgive others, but have a hard time forgiving myself. I tend to move on when life is difficult and I try to not compare myself with others so I'm sure that is an area that needs work.
4. Homemade chicken soup, beef stew, or a bowl of chili...what's your pleasure on a cold winter's day?
I am fond of homemade chicken or turkey soup with lots of veggies. I don't add rice or noodles since Mr. D can't eat them, but soup and biscuits is a favorite of mine and we have PLENTY of chicken!!!
5. The best part of my day is....
I'm a morning person and always have been. Mr. D likes to sleep in a bit 'cause he has a hard time sleeping through the night, so I can get up early and have the place to myself for a bit before he gets up and presents me his list of stuff he wants me to do.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Randomly thinking about elections coming up in March and praying that I have a job still. It's going to be tough dealing with this every 3 years knowing that you may not have a job if you aren't elected. I am enjoying my position, but realistically I need to prepare in case I need to suddenly look for a new position. I'm hoping all goes well this year as I really don't have anything to fall back on currently.
We had to say goodbye to our little Spotty last week. She has been a regular part of our lives for 11 years and we will miss he VERY much. She had breast cancer and it got to the point where she had trouble walking and eating and moving around to get comfortable, so we knew it was time. This picture was taken only minutes before the vet put her down. She was a good dog!
