Negative Ninnies and Rainbows

Oh, Monday. I usually enjoy my Monday mornings. I feel like it's a new beginning, and I REALLY like new beginnings. There's so much hope and excitement for the week.

This Monday morning, however, has thrown me for a loop. All weekend long, I suffered from what other people are referring to as vertigo. I refer to it as the never ending drunk that I didn't ask for. Seriously, people, if you have never experienced this, I will tell you honestly that I would rather relive the 42 hours I spent in labor with my first daughter than do this again. At least on the end of it, I was holding an awesome little piece of the world. With this, I stumble away with ear aches and a massive hangover.

In the midst of all of this head-swirling I did, I was also bombarded with several negative ninnies. Very, very negative ninnies. The kind you'd like to throw your shoe at. I live in reality. I live in the reality of great possibilities. Maybe I'm old school. Maybe I am just excited to see people succeed and to reach for their goals and dreams. Maybe I'm living in a world of rainbows and butterflies? But really, when it comes right down to it, I am a POSITIVE person. I want people to be happy. I want to be happy myself and to feel proud.

When I sat down to write this post, I was prepared to shell out all of the gory details that the negative ninnies brought to me. It was all going to be splattered right here on this page for all to see. But now that I'm this far in, and with all the positive people talk, I'm just not going to do it. Nope. I will go back to the land of rainbows and butterflies and believe in the human race. And I will be happy to nurse this vertigo hangover with these pictures of rainbows.

All better now. Back to my happy Monday.
