Reasons to be Happy
These last few weeks I haven't been able to stop smiling! Despite being extremely busy, the weather being horrendous, and being utterly exhausted from volleyball tournaments, I've somehow managed to walk around with a big, silly, grin on my face.
Why? You might be wondering. Well, sometimes you look around and realize, life isn't so bad! I wrote an earlier post about positivity and how important it is to let go of the negative.
Well, about a month ago, I was feeling super down and negative. In particular, I decided to give up on dating because it always seemed to lead to a dead end. (I've talked a bit before about my perspective on dating.) So, I sat down and talked to a friend about how I was feeling and she completely understood. However, instead of adding to my negativity, she told me to keep going and not give up. This friend of mine, we'll call her "K", has really helped me get over some bad experiences I've had and has been there for me when I've been feeling like total crap about life. K's positive outlook and optimistic attitude has definitely been contagious.
So when she told me to keep trying and not give up, I hesitantly decided to give things another shot. By now, you can guess where I'm heading with this. So let's just say that I'm pretty happy that she got me out of my negative attitude and back onto the dating scene. Little did I know that someone would waltz into my life and make me realize that there are still good guys out there and not every man is full of crap.
Who knows what will happen with my dating life, but for now I am happy to have good friends, like K, who will remind me to keep going even when things look pretty grim.
