Positive "Adventure" Week 1

10:11 PM

I'm a negative person. I've been like that ever since I can remember. It just isn't natural for me to look on the "sunnyside" of things. Being so negative really has taken a toll on my life. I was ready for a change. So at the beginning of this past week I asked almost everyone that is around the most of the week to tell me if I'm being negative. The result...

It's been okay. Wait that was negative wasn't it? *facepalm* It has been different. It is going to take a while to get use to. Most of the time I make conversation by complaining, or talking about something bad that happened to me. Come to think of it that is probably why I talk so much! Now that I've "turned over a new leaf" (who came up with that term anyway) whenever I am going to tell about something that I did I gather all the good things that happened and throw out all the bad things. It's probably a stupid way to look at things, but that's how my brain works.

When my brain says "I'll complain about this!" I say "Let us rethink that.". I just put the complaint into perspective. For example, if I am going to complain that it's hot, I just remember when the sun didn't shine for a week at the beginning of this year.

My "adventure" is much easier since I asked people to hold me accountable. And yes, it was hard to say "My name is Grace, and I have a problem", but what are friends and family for right?
