Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

It’s supposed to be cooler today, so I’m dressed down. The scale was up yesterday, but mine is back down this morning, and my jeans that were tight the last time I put them on fit better now.

I think I’m still headed in the right direction.

Kimmy said in my posts I am focused on the negative, and she’s right. It’s not just my posts. It’s how I am. It drives people crazy. It drives me crazy.

You might think it’s easy to be positive, but it’s not for me. Sometimes even when I think I’m being positive, it turns out I’m not. I didn’t choose this. And I don’t know how to change it. Cognitive behavior therapy, probably. Neuroplasticity, a concept so new that my autocorrect doesn’t recognize it.

The hard part is always being aware of when I’m being negative, so I can actively replace the negativity.

You will see me peppering my posts with positive statements at times. Some of the statements are deliberate, not yet automatic. Because, while it’s true that I err on the side of negative, I do try my best to think otherwise.

Like anyone, I am a work in progress.

Positive side note: I think I actually slept through the night.

Well, readers, have a good day, and a safe commute. As always, thanks for reading.
