B E . P O S I T I V E

I sat underneath the sunshine yesterday, watching little Brie enjoy the water shooting from the ground. I drifted back and forth between my book and watching her run through the splash pads water feature. There were a ton of busy little mom’s watching their multiple children and talking to all the other mommies in their little groups. I couldn’t help but overhear some of their conversations though, so many of them were just like high school girls. I couldn’t believe some of the negativity and gossip spilling from their mouths. It actually kind of caught me off guard a few times. 

There are points in time when people need to vent, I understand that. But, if you want to live a life that is positive and upbeat then you need to surround yourself with positive people. Do not let yourself get caught up in the negativity and gossip that surrounds you sometimes. You can protect yourself and your energy in your everyday life, if you just remove yourself from the negative people and situations that bring you down.


  1. So true. Gossip and hate is like a disease, and it spreads quickly throughout a group of friends. I always wonder why women are so hard on other women. We need to stick together! ~Ree

  2. Soooo true. Over the last 6-7 months, I've been working on myself with being more aware of the conversations I'm involved in, and when it turns negative- I either find a way to change the topic or just get up and walk away for awhile. Blessing to you!
