Yo, yo, yo peeps. MC MadDisaster here in the scene looking to be seen…
OK, that is just dumb. I was having a conversation with someone online today and it revolved around why we were part of this “support” group on FB. I had mentioned the negativity we all began our posts off with, including myself, like:
“I’ve only lost 1 pound this week”
“I totally failed this week”
“….Do better next week”
What I and these other folks were missing was that there was a lot of positives as well, the person that lost “ONLY” a pound should share how she did it with the person that gained a pound. The individual that filed should see it not as failure, but a lesson, you tried this way and it didn’t work so try this. Or probably more close, I didn’t try at all. And finally my favorite, I will do better next time or start tomorrow or how about NEVER?
I stressed to my friends that negativity is how I go to where I am today and I will only be celebrating the positive from THIS moment on. It will take a lot of work, as I am a natural cynic, but I am going to really find the lesson in all things, listen more and try to be positive. Otherwise I will be as silly as a one dollar bill in a mad wad of Monopoly money.
