So I started 2015 with one goal, just one! It was a simple one too! To be positive. To see the silver lining on every cloud, to stop and smell the roses, to look at the world through rose colored classes.
Well so far the skies have been overcast so no clouds, roses are wilted or not in bloom and someone dropped and then stepped on my rose colored glasses! Polly Pissy Pants and Negative Nelly have set up shop in my house and won't leave!
I know I have many things to be thankful for, and I really do try hard to remember those. I mean I have a healthy family, a roof over my head, clothes on my back. I just keep letting the little things get to me and to stress me out and make me angry.
Social media doesn't help either. Stories about abandoned children, sore winners from the Super Bowl, celebrities that are transitioning from a man to a woman (okay well that one doesn't make me angry, it just makes me shake my head!). They all just make you scratch your head and go "What is the world coming to?" It makes me mostly just want to bury my head in the sand and pretend like none of this is really going on around me!
Getting old doesn't help either. To many "adult" responsibilities! Bills to be paid, taxes that are due. First time EVER that we have to pay and it makes me angry! I mean we make TOO much to qualify for any discounts/savings but barely make enough to live comfortably. Stupid, stupid....
But again...I shouldn't complain right? I have a wonderful, caring husband who makes me laugh, a smart and beautiful daughter that melts my heart, wonderful friends who let me vent and tell me to suck it up and get over it when I am being a pill, family that loves me and makes sure I am okay.
So hopefully Polly & Nelly will move their butts here shortly and we will all live happily ever after!
