Although, I have been told that I am “over positive” and see the world through “Rose colored lenses,” we all go through a bad day. There are moments I feel sad, lonely, upset, frustrated, and angry. And of course, there are times I just go to a room and yell to the top of my lungs, then once I let it out and take a few deep breaths….I’M GOOD.

I tend not to stay in that ” downward spiral mode” too long because it is not productive. Thus, to attack the downward spiral, I take a step back, reflect, and see what I can learn from the moment. For the most part, I learned that we have control of our thoughts and attitude and that is what will shape our experience.
