The quote above, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, speaks to me a lot recently. With normal, everyday stresses, I’ve been finding myself getting easily frustrated and even angry at some things. People choosing to talk about me behind my back rather than approach me with concerns, for example. However, almost every time I’ve tried to keep positivity in mind. I’m a firm believer that negativity breeds negativity, and that if someone else chooses to be negative, it’s your responsibility to not let them bring you down with them.
I’ve not always been successful in keeping my chin up in the last few weeks, and I admit I’ve broken down once or twice, but I’m feeling much more positive and extremely proud of myself. I would have let things like this get me down much more even a year ago.
