Kathie, how do you stay so positive?
Yep, I get that question quite a bit. Of course I have my bad days just like everyone else but for the most part I am pretty chipper.
Anyway, I got to thinkin'...
What makes some people see the glass as half-full while others see it as half-empty?
I can't answer for others but as for me, I
blame credit my uncles for creating the confident, take-on-the-world risk-taker that I am.
You see, my mom was the only girl out of 10 kids and I am the oldest grandchild.
She had me at a young age so she brought me (all 5 pounds) home from the hospital to a house full of little boys
Now imagine all said little boys carrying me around like a baby doll (I didn't have to walk til I was 5), coddling me and spoiling me rotten, catering to my every whim.
For five glorious years I was a princess!
And then...... the bottom fell out.
That awful, horrible moment when reality opened the door and crept it's way into my life forever - that 'red devil' letting me know in no uncertain terms that I was not any cuter, not smarter, and -gasp!- not any more special than anyone else!
Talk about traumatized! That's right, but it was my very first real lesson in life that sticks with me today. More on that later.
So, if you're interested in my 'secrets' on how to live a positive, happy, (almost) worry-free life then I am more than happy to divulge.
But this will take more than one -even two - posts. So stay tuned.
