Being More Positive Can Make Your Days Much Better

Positivity can be contagious.

Being More Positive Can Make Your Days Much Better

When things go wrong, we can all agree it makes it hard to have a positive attitude. Sometimes you may feel like shutting down for the day and just doing nothing at all. But that's not doing yourself or anyone around you any favors. It sets you back in your goals and piles up your workload.

There are many ways that being more positive can help you have better days. Have you ever been around someone in a bad mood, and felt like it put you in a bad mood instantly? Being negative can definitely rub off on people. But being positive can also have the same effect.

Trying to be positive for yourself and the people around you can make the biggest difference. I feel like making a conscious effort to stay positive can make your day 10 times better.

One way to have better days is to start first thing in the morning. When you wake up, try telling yourself that no matter what it is going to be a good day. Doing that can make the most difference in the way you handle things that may be unexpected. If you have a positive mindset from the time you wake up, it can be harder to let your day be ruined by unexpected or negative things.

In everyday life, there are going to be little things that don't go your way that can dull your mood or get you down. It is inevitable that not everything works in your favor. But knowing that, it should make it easier to accept that issue.

Trying to stay positive, and not letting setbacks get you down is a sure way to have better days. If you start working on more positivity one step at a time, you can train your mind in a way to react better to negative outcomes.

I'm not saying that it is as easy as snapping your fingers to be more positive, but if you really try and bring more positivity into every day, you will see a difference. You never know what others around you are going through, and a smile or a good mood has the possibility to bring them so much happiness.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
