Rambling About Negativity

Maybe its me but there seems to be a lot of negativity in the world. We are all living day-to-day trying to get by but there are lots of things that drag us down. People these days find it easier to rail against something and complain about it than try to fix the problem. Wouldn’t it be better to light a match to scare away the darkness than to just let the darkness consume ones heart and mind? It’s a matter of people wanting things a certain way and it’s not working out for them. I don’t know but perhaps we need more light and levity to get us through. It’s so easy though to be Debbie Downer than to encourage and enlighten. There are things I get down about, everyone does but there are a lot of things to be grateful for. Maybe we should try to focus on those things. Just saying.

  1. This is so true. Truth be told I was Debbie Downer back in the day and I’m not proud. What I am proud of is not bring that person anymore. Yes, things drag me down but only for a minute. It’s a conscious effort on my part every single day. Thanks for sharing!
