Negativity Killed The Cat

One morning on Facebook, my great friend Danielle said that she was going to delete all of her "friends" that posted nothing but negative statuses all of the time, because she wanted nothing but positive people in her life. Sorry to say this Danielle, but if you want to be around positive people all of the time, you may need to go to Mid Town Atlanta and hang out with the gays!

I understand where she comes from though! Negativity is super contagious. If someone that is close to you is having a bad day, you can guarantee that you're going to have a bad day as well. Some people have bad days everyday. They wake up, and make sure that they have a bad day. If they won a million dollars, they would give it away, just to pass the joy to somebody else and to continue their bad day. Their family tree has negative roots and brings forth negative fruit in the spring time. If he or she was a gardener, they would purchase beautiful flowers and pour gas on all of them, just so they can loathe in self pity about how their flowers are dead. If they were a pitcher in the World Series and the score was tied with 2 outs and a 3-2 count and the opposing team had bases loaded, he would intentionally hit the batter in the leg with the ball to lose the game, just because he loves negative publicity. I'm getting a little overboard I know, but you know who I'm talking about. We all have one person we know who just goes through life with the dark cloud hovering over them all day. 

I'm not saying that if you ever have a bad day that you're a horrible person. We are all humans and life is a roller coaster. You have some good days and bad days, but to be wrapped up in so much negativity can block blessings that Lord maybe trying to send your way.

Having a negative attitude can be controlled. I know people who are worth millions that have the attitude of poor people, and I know poor people who live life like they're Donald Trump. It's all up to you! We all get screwballs thrown our way, but its up to us if we're going to let those screwballs effect us. Just roll with the punches and thank God for the blessings, because I'm sure there is somebody out there with a lot more on their plate than you!
