Trying to Stay Positive

I had written a post last night called, "Grocery Store Rantings" (or something like that).  Some of you may have even read it in the hour or so it was posted this morning.  However, I woke up today and read it again and decided to delete it.  Yes I had a crummy trip to the grocery store on Saturday morning and have been under a lot of stress lately as I manage the house and kids by myself (S works 20/7) but that is no excuse for negativity.  To be honest, there is no room for negativity in my life right now.  I need to try to stay positive for the sake of my kids, my overworked and sleep deprived husband and for me!  I feel the best thing I can do right now is vent, look at the bright side and move on.

You see negativity everywhere you look.  Facebook is even depressing me lately.  All of the posts complaining about the weather are really starting to get old.  If I had a few free hours I would go back and check these peoples profiles back in December and January where they posted all about their excitement about the snow.  It is still February people, we have another few weeks before spring even gets here!  Live for today and not what you hope tomorrow will bring.  Yesterday, I couldn't help but smile when I looked outside and saw the beautiful winter wonderland. 

So take a moment, count your blessings and try to find something positive to focus on today.  It will help your family, your outlook and your soul :)  Happy Monday!

Great post but you could have left the other one too! It's okay to vent to us! That's part of the way we're here for you!

It is very rare that you hear me complain about the weather...I agree with Little BGCG's Mommy, if you need to vent that is what we are here for! Happy Monday to you too!

Thanks for the advice, I need it. Lots of stress and crying.

I am very blessed because of my wonderful family! You are all so special and make my life so filled with happiness!

Now can I complain a little about the snow and ice - just a little :)
