I'm Positive - Life's a bitch
At the end of this ‘bad spell’ my life has been through, I couldn’t help reviewing what I actually still believed in.
Most of my core beliefs have been blown to smithereens and I’ve found that I don’t believe in anything much anymore.
I mean, fair enough with God and religion, no-one really knows for sure whats out there (doesn’t stop me praying though) and I firmly feel that people have a right to their own religious beliefs – as long as they don’t effect me.
No, it was more the beliefs like: life’s fair, good guys always win, hard work and determination always pay off in the end, blah blah blah
I can’t actually believe I had those beliefs in the first place. Where was I? Living a Disney fairytale? No, it was that coaching ‘cult’ talking again ha-ha
One point I think we would all benefit from just simply accepting, is that sometimes:
Good things happen to really bad people – like drug dealers winning the lottery
Bad things happen to really, beautifully, good people – like children dying of cancer.
They just do. End of.
What really annoys me is that the Law of Attraction Gurus will then tell you it’s all your own fault, you ‘attracted’ it all to yourself with your negative vibes!!
I don’t buy into this
crap ideal. Don’t get me wrong, I love the law of attraction and I do use it, but I believe it’s only a part of the ‘jigsaw of life’ and not all of it.
Sometimes life is vile to you for no rhyme or reason.
This is when I believe too much positive spin can be dangerous. It’s great to have an optimistic outlook (in fact when life hits the fan – it’s imperative that you believe things will improve) but not at the expense of reality.
Shopping for shoes when you stony broke because “you know things will pick up soon” is just plain stupid.
And as for all of these stupid sayings and quotes that the ‘rah rah’ gang endlessly quote, it makes me want to hurl:
“It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down, it’s the fact you get back up again that matters”
Crap heads – of course it matters how many times you’ve been knocked down - it hurts and you get tired. Tired of dragging yourself back up and starting all over again.
I’m just saying – out loud – that sometimes ‘Life’s a Top Notch Bitch’ – it’s not negative, just honest and all the positive spin in the world won’t change that.
