How DO you stay SO positive HH Addie?
The other day I had someone ask me – how do you stay so positive all the time? I actually get asked this quite a bit. I had a solid 45 minutes in my car by myself Saturday- It was the BEST FEELING ever—just me and 88.1 on the jam that switches to 102.5 as you approach Mineral Point going to Mount Horeb.
On my way home that day- the question kept hitting me, How am I so positive now, I was not always this way- not at all. Is it the- kids? Husband? Job change?
The fact is ALL of it- all of my surroundings are positive. I am not sure if it is just that as we grow older we are more selective on who or what we let in our lives- but at this moment in time I have so many positives in my life. So many people that lift me up. I hate the word “drama” but I can say I really have none. I just put my foot down one day and said this is who I AM and if you like it great and if you don’t then move on. I don’t surround myself with negative. Let’s be real – negative can drain and drain you. Around it too much and it can make you upset a lot. Cut that negative out of your life—bring in the positive!
I can say it is NOT ME who has all the positive energy- it is who and what I SURROUND myself with. I cannot take credit for being a happy person- it is my faith, my husband and kids, my friends and my customer’s . It is my kids my husband my home- heck even my dogs! All of these positives in my life make me who I am today. People, places and things come in and out of our lives all the time. Some are placed in there for long term and some short term… I have had negative days—years even.I can’t even put a finger on people or places that made me so negative but it was for sure something to do with my surroundings. Slowly over time those negatives have dissolved and have been replaced with GOOD.
I know that people say what you put out in the universe comes back to you – I do think that to an extent—but I also believe that what you let in makes you who you are too! I can’t take the credit for this uplifting spirit-it is each person I cross paths with that helps with this—you might not know me or maybe have not seen me in 20 years but we are crossing paths right now because you are reading this—and you reading helps me keep going and that I am grateful for! You might be my family or my friend or my customer- thank you too! Without all of you – I would not be me
NOTE: I am not happy ALL the time- let's just be clear on that! Mostly yes…100% no! That would not be normal—right? Lol
We Rise by Lifting Others,
lol below- I didn't even know it took a picture and I could not figure out how to get those bunny ears off during face time. We were all dying laughing
