I like music and one of the bands that I like (among many) are the group Great Big Sea. One particular song comes to mind and that is “Ordinary Day,”
Other than being a catchy tune, it always serves to remind me the importance of that second phrase in my closing line “Keep your attitude positive.”
This is not only because it sucks to be around someone who is in a bad mood, and even worse when that person is you.
Not only does this suck because your bad mood puts you in an even worse mood, but you can’t get away from you . . . you’re stuck with you.
The other thing is that when you are in a bad mood, or just in a negative frame of mind, everything seems to be insurmountable, every little thing stops you.
Problems don’t stop coming when you are in a positive frame of mind, they just are smaller and easier to deal with, because you don’t see them as a big deal.
Trust me on this, as I have been in both mindsets for extended periods and it is much nicer, and life seems easier when you are in a positive frame of mind.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
