“Attitudes are contagious. Are yours worth catching?” – Dennis & Wendy Mannering.
“If you don’t think every day is a good day, just try missing one.” – Cavett Robert
Attitudes- one of those fabulous things everyone was given. Also, one of those things that you have complete control over. Some of us choose to wake up in the morning thinking about the sun shining, birds chirping and how lovely the day is going to be. Others, wake up beating the crap out of the alarm clock, yelling at the kids to hurry up, and coming down with a case of Tourette’s in the shower just thinking about work.
Bad attitudes, are like the super flu. I have caught myself being around sour puss people and then the next thing you know, I’m a complainer, too! Ahh! Do they have anti-miserable people spray…I definitely need some!
Everyone has bad days, where the stress is sky-high, you feel like a big pile of poop, and nothing is going your way. But, a good thing to remember is, it could be worse! No matter what you are going through, someone out there is having a more difficult time than you could ever think of. So, suck it up….get over it, or go lock yourself in a room somewhere, so you won’t infest anyone else with your bad attitudiness!!
Today, I’m going to compare two different people, and show the different kind of outlooks you can have on common situations. You choose which person represents you 😉
1. Someone walks by and says, “TGIF!!”
PP- Woohoo!! Weekend ahead and I’m going to enjoy every minute of it!!
NN- Yeah, but in two more days, I’m going to be back to work, again…this sucks!
2. You hit morning traffic
PP- Now I just have more time to listen to my morning playlist, yes!!
NN- Stupid traffic, stupid accident that might have cause this stupid traffic!!
3. At lunch, the restaurant is out of your favorite sandwich
PP- Oh well, it just gives me a chance to try something new!
NN- Really?? Don’t you people know how to order enough food to make it through the lunch rush hour!?!
4. Bank is super busy
PP- It is payday, I will just check my email while I am standing in line.
NN- Holy crap! Does anyone go to the bank any other time, or just when I decide to go!
5. Boss asks you to do something 5 mins before its time to leave
PP- Must be important! I’m going to get it done to keep the boss man happy!
NN- Seriously?? I have been sitting around for the last hour and NOW he asks! That was so done on purpose!!!
6. You win the lottery
PP- Oh my gosh!!! I can’t wait to use the money in so many positive ways! I am going to pick out 10 different charities to help!!
NN- Well, I will most likely end up bankrupt in a couple of years, just like the statistics show!
Because you know, winning the lottery is a common situation 😉 lol!!
Don’t be one of those people, that when others see coming….they run and hide, so they don’t have to listen to you and all your negativity! Nobody likes to hear people complain all the time. Don’t pride yourself on being witchy! You can find rainbows & kittens in everyday, somehow. Sometimes you just have to pull it out from underneath a whole bunch of cow manure!
Have an absolutely, positively, fabulous Friday!!
