Negative Nancy Doesn’t Have to be Apart of Getting Older…

I loved that I found this quote and picture on Pinterest this morning.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Its hard that the older we get, the more it seems that our dreams and positive/hopeful outlook on life seems to diminish…

Not to be a negative Nancy, because no one likes one of those, but it is something I think about quite often.

I wish I could go back to that little girl that believed the world was full of possibilities and happiness, rainbows and butterflies…

I was always the girl that has known what I wanted to do since I was younger but have come to find that I didn’t take the right internship, didn’t go to a extremely well known college, don’t have the right family connections and the list proceeds to grow as I get older to achieve or even begin taking steps to catch that dream…

So it would be easy to say.. yup it just isn’t going to happen and sit on the fact that you Β are feeling pushed down, tired and not good enough for those crazy courageous dreams you had growing up…

Or…

You can say screw feeling not good enough and stop resting on the many reasons and excuses you have been given for not getting that job you applied for, or dream boy and white picket fence that you have been dreaming of…

and just keep pursuing it!

Picking one foot up in front of the other and finding or creating the path that is meant for you…

I loved seeing this quote this morning because I needed a little reminder myself that no matter how negative and more cynical I feel I become, that ultimately it is my choice to not let Negative Nancy take over my adult years…

to not let bumps and hills along the way STOP me from chasing my dreams or from being happy..

Life is beautiful if you choose to see it that way…
