Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive

You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium’s
Liable to walk upon the scene**

It seems to me people are complaining more and more.  I know for some it is tough out there but some people always manage to look at the good side while others… not so much.  They feel sorry for themselves in greater numbers.  They moan, groan, grumble, sigh and cry, and sling snot.  It is a po’  pitiful why me, all about me, not think of others and it’s not my fault whiny world we live in.

I decided that once a week I am going to do a blog post about things I’m grateful for.  I am working on developing an Attitude of Gratitude and making sure my focus will…  Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive!

So today I will start with the fact that after 67 degree weather, we are back to our cold snap and high winds.  I am so grateful I not only have a great heat pump but the funds to pay any electric bill it pumps out.

Alpha Hubby – oh, I could go on all day about Alpha Hubby.  I have never been loved as unconditionally (outside of God) as this man loves me.  After 16 years marriage (March 4), he is even more romantic than ever and quite an amazing man.  The more I know him, the more I not only love him, but LIKE him.  He truly is my best friend. He gets better like a fine wine.

Alpha Son – what a great guy.  He has a great finacee’ and hysterically funny dog.  He has an amazing sense of humor and I am so proud of him.  He’s a hard worker, can cook, do his own laundry and dishes (wow, how cool is that?) and ain’t too shabby to look at, either!

I am grateful for all the assets I have to help me on my journey back into my Little Black Dress – not only the two Alphas but the equipment, knowledge and means.  I have everything I need and no excuses.  So I’m also grateful that I can STOP making excuses and just DO what I need to do, every morning, every day, every moment, every hour, every choice I make.

LIFE IS GOOD.  It is BETTER when you focus on the good and not the bad.  What you focus on changes the outcome.
