Word

So I've seen this around the bloggy world and at first I thought "That's neat, but not for me." But the more I saw it, the more I wanted to be a part of it. What can I say - I love bandwagons!

I'm picking a word for the year. At first I was like whatever, resolutions will be fine, but I don't think they will. And then I had to pick a word. Gawwww. Do you know how many words are in our dictionary? Too many to count. It was a toss between simplicity and positivity. Which, Chrome keeps telling me isn't a word, but it is now. I'm adding a word to the dictionary so there's one more to count.

I chose positivity. The other night (NYE to be exact) boyfriend and I were in his truck going to dinner and he was ragging on me for me so negative about everything. It pissed me off but the more I thought about it, he was wrong right.

I can be a very negative person. I hate to admit it. And now it's time to change that. And I think I've been doing a pretty good job so far. Yeah, it's only 3 days into the year but hey! Yesterday I had a break down and wanted to be negative but I made myself get on fb and post something positive. Because I hel myself accountable. I can seethe and seethe in my mind, but outwardly, I will be more positive. And eventually my mind will become more positive. BOOM!


Here it goes. Hopefully I don't lose being funny with out negativity. Of course some will still be there!

When my boyfriend gets on my ass for being negative, I assure him I'm just being "realistic." But he's right. Don't you hate when they're right? Haha. That's a great word to start with! And I read this quote that I thought you might like:

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”

Gandhi may have been on to something!

Good luck love, you can do it! I'm terrible about being negative too, though I try to only keep it to certain days. But it's probably something I need to work on as well!

Love it! Hope you find your way to positivity :) Being negative is easy to do though, I am definitely guilty of it too!

Fuck Chrome.

It is also the second shortest word in the English language with three I's and two T's.
