There are days when you feel like completely throwing in the towel. There are also days that you are slapped in the face with a grand dose of reality. I was recently told that my positivity level has decreased over time. I had to laugh because I am nothing if not the consummate survivor. I have been fortunate enough to know some very caring and giving individuals in my life. I wake up every morning with a renewed sense of hope, faith and self.
Every day that I awake, I know is a new day for me to move forward with the plans that have been set in motion. I live life one day at a time. I take in every milestone and celebrate it. Why? We only have “one life to live” and I want to live it, enjoying every moment of it. I don’t want to dismiss the “menial” because I quite enjoy the little things in life. Those little things have inspired some fantastic adventures that make for even greater stories.
All in all, what does this mean? No, I don’t believe I have the same positivity level that I had when I was younger. My positivity level has changed because I have a greater backing than I had before. Yet, instead of it decreasing, it has increased.
There is a song by Reba McEntire entitled I’m a Survivor. It is my theme song for this year!
