Attitude is a Choice

On a recent blog post there was a comment where the writer questioned the part of my bio where I said I was a ‘self-proclaimed struggler’. She felt that comment was negative. I, on the other hand, see it as an honest assessment of me. I struggle. I struggle to stay positive. I struggle to have positive self-talk. I struggle! Struggling to me it not a negative; struggling means that I am striving to achieve my goals in the face of resistance.

I want to walk around the world singing ‘It’s not easy being green’ with Kermit the frog! Except I want to sing” it’s not easy being me!” And I suspect many of you feel the same. I, like you, strive to live happy, to reach my goals and create an environment of positive self talk.

It’s not always easy. Just because your, or my, default isn’t always happy happy joy joy, does not mean we can’t get there! Last August I wrote a post on choosing happiness. The words are just as true this August. We CAN choose!
