Sometimes when we think things that are crazy and nuts are negative… they aren’t they have a positive silver lining. There was a crazy situation with a person. I was upset that humans have no humanity or empathy. However, right now I’m listening to my dear friend and upline Erica, tell me that I dodged a bullet. I never noticed that silver lining. I was so wrapped up in the crazy and the nuts that I neglected to find the positive. It was a mistake I’m actively trying not to repeat. Because all day today I thought I was late but I made it with in a minute or two. Because all day today the universe gave me little signs of humanity like the person in front of me paying for my coffee (Yes I paid it forward). Because when I turned the corner at starbucks there was an off duty Santa in plain clothes sitting there with a smile on my face like he could feel my frustration and was telling me it would be okay with his expression. Because when I had to drop my van off for a fix even though it’s taking an extra day and means an extra day of a rental, they tried to squeeze it in. Because I got a new car as a rental. Because I got to eat food I LOVE and I discovered a new restaurant near me. Because I watched my oldest eat food out of his comfort zone.
This doesn’t mean I didn’t have 3 fevers in my house, this doesn’t mean I don’t have a house that looks like a hurricane hit it. It doesn’t mean I didn’t get a phone call from one of my besties about her getting cut or about my other bestie having a rough time or my other bestie (yes I have a few lol) falling. It doesn’t mean these things didn’t happen. They did, the negative did happen but there was positive too. There was love shown, there was growth made, there was laughs had.
The point of tonight’s late night post is this…. find the positive in the situations. There is always a positive even in the shittiest of places. Sometimes it’s hard to find. If you concentrate on the crap life gives you, you will be up shits creek. If you look for the positive when life gives you crap, you will turn it into a multi million dollar manure business….. Remember that phrase when life gives you lemons… turn it into a lemon tree. Take what life gives you and create the a positive impact in your existence. It is the snow ball effect!!!! (The same holds true for the negative… don’t let that snow ball…. ) You control your life. Be a good human, be empathetic.
