Think positive vibes

So i decided to still blog some random stuff since i haven't got my technical problem fixed with the picture uploading. I will still update those once i figure it out... Anyways.. Interesting experience tonight. I decided to go to the store to grab a chocolate milk and banana bread but mainly to get out and think. When I got to the milk section in the store there was a lady and this other couple prob in their fifties buying milk. The one lady was waiting for them to finish so she could get hers and that lady was inbetween me and chocolate milk... So we waited. I look over at the couple's shopping cart and it had prob six or seven gallons of milk... NO JOKE... I know you out there in the pacific region prob just spoiled in your pants. At least milk is cheaper here but still... Who goes through that much before it spoils. So they kinda move out of the way for this lady so she can grab her milk and as she is looking for it, the wife of the couple says, "is there a problem?" in a normal non-aggressive voice. The lady turns around and says, "no". As the couple walks off the lady starts mumbling under her breath but loud enough for me to hear, "Do You have a problem? Mind your own business lady", repeating this several times after. I happened to see this lady in another isle where the couple was just leaving and she murmurs the same exact thing in the same negative and bothered tone. I honestly thought about the situation in the store and my drive home and immediately had to blog it. My thoughts were that this lady was missing out. Here she was in the store at 11pm mad about milk because someone may have purchased her preferred kind first. I realized that this lady just had a negative attitude about life and let the smallest thing in the world bother her and change her mood. Maybe she had a bad day. Maybe she lost her job. Nonetheless it made me really think of how we need to be happy no matter what. This has been on my mind quite a bit lately and am seeing how its super important. I feel bad for that lady and pray she can find something to make life good. Life is good. We have tons to be grateful for and excited about. I really believe life is how you percieve it to be. You have to constantly remind yourself to be positive no matter what. A positive mind brings a peaceful and happy soul. Ha I just made that up. As Bob marley says, "You just can't live in that negative way.. if you know what i mean. Make way for the positve day".

You said it, Dan! Thats so true, sometimes we let stupid things get to us and ruin our day---and we need to focus on the positive things in our lives, because there are so many! If we focus on things or people that irritate us, it doesn't do us any good. Our lives will be so much happier and productive if we just smile and let that stupid stuff roll off our backs. I love the way you put that---so true!!

You have a smoking problem? Dan...honestly =) And MY family (8 kids and 2 adults) would easily go through 6 gallons of milk a week. We lived off of cold cereal (much to my mothers dismay)...any who...Normal people like myself (no snide remarks please) and my family use to buy 6 gallons of milk. Now as for the crappy attitude...all I can say is Life, Love and Laughter!

wow i seriously agree! I think being away from Hawaii you see a lot more bitter people who freak out about the little things. It's insane. But I do notice myself becoming more worried/bugged about dumb things and then I have to put myself in check.... anyways, liked you blog.
ps your blog is sweet. Its cool to see what you're up to!
