Reality check…

The sun sets on another day…

I watched sunset slowly sink into the Western sky as I crossed new horizons and readied myself for another change in the world. It seems there is always change in the world.

I was talking to a friend today who was having a particularly bad day. As we talked they made the statement that they know I am positive all the time but I have to admit that some people suck. I laughed to myself for a minute.

Each day as I sit down and write I try to make sure I am staying positive. There are hundreds of posts that go awry and I either have to delete them and start over or I save them and start over and consider writing about the issue later. The world is not always positive but how we see it can be.

I want to say wholeheartedly that there are a lot of people who suck. People whose minds are closed and cannot see beyond themselves. People who only consider others with like minds as valid points of view. People who purposefully hurt other people or take advantage for no cause other than their own twisted pleasures. People whose hearts are full of hate and want others to feel their hate. All of these people and so many more suck.

It’s kind of a funny word but it’s very accurate. Negative people suck the life right out of you. They suck the positivity out of you. They suck the potential for good feelings out of you. Mostly they suck away your chance of having an amazing day.

Yes, I agreed that there are many people that suck but I’m not going to let them take my power away. I don’t mind because they don’t matter.

Tonight you will be surprised to know that for a few moments I became excessively angry with the advent of a situation where someone thought they were being cute but obviously didn’t remember the depth of their past transgressions. It didn’t last long simply because I was aware that they probably weren’t aware (due to poor memory) and in that I was giving away my power to enjoy a happy moment. I set it aside and spent time with my grandson. That always makes me laugh.

So as the sun sets on another day, some people suck but I will not let them suck the life out of me. I hope you find a way to feel the same. Set aside the negativity of others and let’s find a way to have an amazing day or at least a highly tolerable day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and find a better path…
