I have found in the past, my concentrating on the positive is the opposite of what most people think about. My family is a typical family. Their conversations are all about the aches and pains of life. When I speak of my current life, they look at me like I have 2 heads! Their recent comment was, what cult are you now following? I have always been the “black sheep of the family”. I would rather be a black sheep than one of them. As I ran out of 3×5 cards, I realize I have a fabulous life already! As I’m sitting on our boat, I look out over the water and thank my creator for all that has come into my life. Here is where I stumble, i am grateful, but when I speak of all that has come into my life, I feel like I am bragging. Am I taking on their feelings? Am I being too sensitive? I was a single mom of 3 wonderful kids. Worked a full time job and a part time network marking business. They are all grown, I live in Miami, and here I am, enjoying my hard work!
