Share The Joy Of The Season
Now that I am older, hopefully wiser, and not working, when I come in contact with a person who likes being in the unpleasant state of negativity, I know I have a choice. There are no mandatory meetings or overtime, there is also no paycheck I am depending upon. I am finding that since I stopped working I am truly the captain of my ship, steering aware from danger and denial by maintaining an optimistic attitude. At the very least I am able to decrease or reverse negativity and in many cases I am able to produce calm and affirmation in my life.
It isn't necessary to go head to head with a person who wallows in negativity. They must be getting something out of it to continue on their un-merry way. Their choice. For me, I make more progress on a project when I am relaxed and positive. Right now, my main project is living each day at a time. During the holidays we all have the opportunity to show what we are really made of and share some joy with others. You never know what an act of kindness will do to soften a heart and cause that person to pass along the joy to another person. It is possible to stop negativity and promote hope and joy.
