Happy Sunday! Enjoying a nice cup of Orange Spice tea today. No famous seller, just a blend anyone can make. The sun is shining, but it’s still quite chilly out there. I still don’t know where that major snow storm is. I’m beginning to think that weather guy may also be a negative thinker.
Are you? I am not. But I live with one and it’s the worst thing in the world. I despise negativity. And I’m way past the days of struggling to drag people into Happy Town. You know the way, just go. Today I have been on the offensive to help get rid of that and clarify my position. Me along with my trusted Sharpie have been going around writing on things. Like that gallon sweet tea pitcher, which now says,” NO! DO YOU WANT TO DIE? GYST!” Yep, it’s time to take drastic action. Anything processed or has sugar or flour is now in the garbage. Oh, GYST is just Get.Your.Shit.Together. It’s my mantra for the year.
So for all of you family members who love to wallow in your illnesses and yet do nothing constructive about them….STFU. Stop trying infect the rest of us with your moaning and groaning while you are still shoving poison in your mouth or smoking it or whatever you are doing and know 100 percent you should not.
Start channelling your inner Orange. The color of happiness and liberation from pitifulness (probably not a word, yet appropriate). Who can’t muster up a smile when you smell a freshly peeled orange? It’s a mindset. A decision you make every morning. Today is going to be a good day. And then you make it one. We all have problems. It’s how you deal with them that sets us apart. So many of us on here struggle with anxiety, depression and stress. But we deal with it. We WANT to be well and we really don’t want to be dragged into someone else’s negativity and whining. You hold the key to your own health and well-being. YOU. If you don’t like where you are with your health, your weight, or your attitude, well, guess what? YOU are the only one who can change it.T
That is all. Be Kind and Take Care of YOU!
