The Power of Positive thinking? Highly overrated.

I waited all day, positive attitude intact, for something good to happen.

Nothing good happened.



BUT, nothing bad happened either. Unless you count the soul crushing realization that I'm still the lone financial supporter of my family.

I'm not counting that. It makes my brain hurt.



Nothing good, positive, or life-affirming today either.


Maybe my good luck is broken or some crap. I have no idea.

I was down in the dumps all day. Then my agent called with some good news. I had the life affirming moment today. Yours will come tomorrow.

ya... I'm with you on this. Positive thinking is definitely NOT working for me. And I can't even bitch about it on my blog because the people who are crushing my spirit insist on reading my blog and then complaining about it. Damn hypocrites.

Did I mention I'm a pastor's wife? Nice attitude eh?

Maybe tomorrow? :)

I wish I had a cool job that I could give your husband. Or that I had lottery winnings I could share with you. I'd pay off my house, and my student loans, and buy a very kick-ass car, and a 4-door wrangler for the husband, and then I'd share with you. Because us cool cats gotta look out for each other!

Hang in there, babe.

I was unemployed for a while, so I know the impact financial strain can have on a family. Take care of each other. Blessings will come.

You get lots of happy words from your faithful readers on here.

That's a lot of good luck. I know, it doesn't pay the bills.

In mylive I notice I'll go through waves of taking hit after hit and then all the sudden life turns around and it's slightly better than it was bad.

It'll happen.

A lot of day, the good/happy thing that happens? Nothing breaks in new and terrible ways.

So did anything fabulously good happen? Maybe not. But you still finished your day at work, went home to Girl Child, Boy Child and, for the love of God, Jason. Any day you get to that is a good day in its own way.

That is not in any way to say that you're not in the middle of some highly sucky times right now. I just figured you already know that part. I just figured it's sometimes too easy to keep that in the front of your brain an forget the good parts.

I've never had much luck with positive thinking. I've tried the visualization thing, the good vibes thing, etc. Frankly? being positive is a lot of work, and no magic fairies have ever given me anything good for it.

Some people say you make your own luck. In that case I wish someone would give me a better recipe becasue my luck keeps coming out all burnt and crusty.

Just keep your head up, and know that it's got to get better eventually.

God's timing is perfect.

Ours isn't.

Blessings.

Oh something happened, you just didn't realize it yet!
