Do you have someone in your life who is a "Debbie Downer"?
(I really do not like that name....wonder why....LOL)
It's sometimes difficult to separate ourselves from people who are always looking at life from a negative point of view. Their glass is ALWAYS half empty and their outlook on life becomes ours sometimes, and having a fix-it type of personality I feel it's up to me to change this person, to make them happy, to fix their life so that they'll see things differently. Okay, I know that's crazy thinking on my part because we cannot change a person 'cause believe me, I've tried. God's been working on me lately about my attitude, but it's difficult to have a happy, upbeat outlook when you are in the midst of negativity and criticism.
I'm going to try to tell myself this each and every morning......
I'm going to make TODAY my favorite day!
I ain't gonna let the devil steal my joy!
By the way, thank you so much for your kind comments yesterday. I truly didn't write that post looking for the things y'all wrote, but after reading a devotional last evening about those whose love language is "words of affirmation" (that's me!!!) and it stating that we need to ask God for encouragement.....
well, I realized that's just what He gave me through that encounter at the Wal-Mart and through you all.
Ain't God good?
Oh, yes He is!
HOPE each and every one of you has the most Terrific Tuesday!
