It seems where ever I go lately, I’ve been surrounded by negative people. The ones who think the sky is always falling, the world is going to end and just suck all the positive energy from you. It’s hard not to fall into the depths of negativity when you’re constantly reminded of all the bad things in life. A bad attitude can really affect your style.
Negativity breeds more negativity. If you’re in a bad mood and take it out on the cashier at the drive-thru, she’ll get in a bad mood. She’ll treat the next customer poorly and get that person in a bad mood. That person will cut someone off on the highway making another person in a bad mood. The cycle goes on and on. Where does it end?
With you. You have the choice on how to react and the power to choose your attitude.
I consider the footprint I leave on this world very carefully and I want to spread good things.
So, the next time someone mentions a negative comment, I’ll do what I always do. Smile, ignore, think happy thoughts and repeat.
- Frowning uses more muscles and creates more wrinkles than smiling.
- You can wear the most fabulous pair of shoes, but if you have a bad attitude, no outfit can save you.
- A positive attitude is your best accessory and can make you shine.
This was one of my favorite songs as a kid. Hope it helps kick-start your week on a happy note!
