Losing that Positive Charge...

Sometimes I get into these funks, in which I just feel down and not in a depressed sort of way either. In a way that the world seems to be on my shoulders and no matter what I do, I can't seem to win. Of course, not that life is about winning or losing, but usually winning is a metaphor for being on top. So, I guess I would rather be on top of my problems or stresses than to be on the bottom.

I do consider myself a positive person with streaks of negativity here and there. I generally look at the brighter side of things. I always get up in the morning in a good mood because I know that it is a start of a brand new day. It is what happens within these days that can turn my spirits from good to bad.

Things that get me down can be anywhere from a stressful day at work to an argument with my wife. Generally, it is just fighting the fight everyday. Getting people to understand that we all have value in this world, which goes way beyond financial resources. The fact that someone like me can never truly be at the table to stop systemic issues that benefit the many and neglect the few. Then there is always the issues of finding my place in this world. These things eat away at the very fiber of my positivity.

I am like a battery filled with positive energy and like any battery, the more it gets used the more energy it loses. Sometimes I lose my charge. Thus regaining it in the morning. I guess you can say that today I lost a lot of my positive energy. Which is alright, I am not complaining about it so much. I know that when I put my head on the pillow tonight, that I will charge overnight.

I'm sorry you lost a lot of positive energy today. But it's a blessing to know that it'll be okay in the morning.

Some people carry their negativity with them day to day, week to week. We all need to recharge every now and again, so being able to do it in 24 hours is wonderful! Some of us need a week on a sandy beach in order to achieve look at it like you know you'll never wake up feeling down, but rather renewed!

I would love a sandy beach though! I used to carry that negative energy but that is not healthy. I have seen what that does to people...high blood pressure!

I am trying to stay young!
