All of me

Just another weblog

You need to be more positive…

on July 22, 2013

A month or so ago, I ran into someone I haven’t seen in quite some time. As I went up to say hello to her, she said in her usual, straight-to-the-point way, “I read your blog, you know. You need to be more positive”.

Of all the people, her saying these words meant more to me than the average person. Because she’s pretty much been through it all. And yet, she is amazingly positive most of the time I hear from her.

Believe me, though. I’m really not this negative in real life. In fact, I’m usually the one telling my husband to brighten up and take the world in a more positive light. I’m a very upbeat, cheery, bubbly girl (most of the time). I guess that’s not exactly the picture you get on this blog.

So I sat down and really thought about the reason why. This is the answer I came up with: I’m the kind of person that doesn’t really show my true negative/agressive emotions.  I usually hide them away and replace everything with a smile and a laugh. So sometimes, my hiding place gets too cramped and all those negative feelings and emotions come out all at once, over something completely irrelevant. I want to be more level-headed. In order to do this, I need an outlet ~ this blog.

By writing about all my little vents that happen, all the negative things in my life, I can let them go and focus on the things that matter the most. Being happy with my precious family. But for you, friend, I will try and express those joyous occasions as well, and spin some positive into this blog.Because isn’t this All of Me? That’s the happy parts, too.

  1. i think your sincerity is touching — and it’s more important to be sincere and honest than always happy, right?

      Thank you so much! I agree it’s important to be sincere and honest – as long as your not a Debbie Downer all the time – I think like everything there needs to be balance.

    I think the comment in itself was negative… It’s your blog and you should be able to discuss whatever you feel like. I don’t always feel like posting positive things, and what I love about blogging is the support that’s given from the blogging community – it’s helped me through some tough times…

    I like your writing – carry on and write whatever you feel like!

      Thank you for the encouragement, suzie81! I will definitely carry on writing about what I feel like – but I will also keep in mind that there are a lot of good things in my life, too 🙂
