Free Tickets To Fantasyland

What a blessing it is to always have a positive attitude and a huge smile every day! I am constantly telling people that it is one of my birth defects, and they do not have too worry about it being contagious! I am quite sure that most people would not know how to deal with always having a smile, let alone the attitude to go along with it!

Think for a minute, about the consequences of having most of the people you come into contact with every day being upbeat and positive! Whew, the increased productivity and peaceful atmosphere would almost be too much to take. What would we possibly do with all of that extra time we have created as a result of meeting all of our goals in a very timely fashion? Can you imagine the surplus energy that would also exist? What could we possibly use this new resource for, all of the extra time and energy, that would make sense?

Oh no! What would all of the drama-needy people do now? I can not even begin to understand an environment where every one had only positive things to talk about! They were supportive and understanding! They figured out how to wash off that selfish tatoo that so many were either born with or managed to acquire at a very young age. The gossip meter would almost fail to even register anymore. The topic of conversation would no longer start with the ever popular have you heard about so and so! Talk about total confusion!

Well, welcome to my world! Every day is a great day! I am constantly accused of smiling too much and being in a good mood way too often! I do not worry about things I cannot control. I process information mentally from a win-win perspective. Meaning, it is never an option to fail or suffer a bad outcome. Rather, it is always going to be a good result, it is just a matter of how good it will be! I have always enjoyed seeing people smile and enjoy themselves, most times in spite of themselves. I have always simply enjoyed having the opportunity to make a difference! A positive, supportive and mutually beneficial difference.

The next time you feel that nagging frown coming on, the negative attitude or outlook, or just having another mundane day, change the channel to the attitude channel! Save the negative energy and spread some positive energy around! Share a smile, a laugh, a supportive idea or recommendation! See how much more relaxed and productive your day is. Enjoy each and every day and live them with a positive and happy purpose. Live, laugh and love!
