the negativity

going to tupperware parties as often as i have this week, exposes you a lot of different kinds of people. i have stories to share after every party but i keep them to myself because who knows who's reading this blog. ha. but one personality that i come across every so often is the negative person. they are downers. but what i've learned is that this is just who they are. they don't realize that everything they say sounds annoyed. i'm not sure where i'm going with this except to say that meeting these people is starting to make me more aware of the comments i'm making. i can lean towards the negative. but when i hear myself saying a couple negative comments in a row, i consciously think "ok, no more". i don't want to fall into the pit of negativity - i've heard it's slippery around that pit.

You make an interesting point re: negativity. I feel the same way! I feel like the "haters" in life are miserable much of the time, probably in most areas of their lives. Too bad for them, they're missing out on having fun and being positive!
