Have Some Class!

yesterday I was talking to a lady whom I considered to be classy. You know, well dressed, prim and proper, well educated, bla bla bla ... sad part was, she had the worst case of cynicism. Wow, I mean she was a negative person ... she had nothing good to say about anything. Sad ... I'll never see her the same.

This experience made me reflect and so I am sharing my thoughts in my morning chronicle. Join me, will you?

Good Morning Everybody ...

I've had a lot on my mind lately. Sometimes your mind takes you in different directions, you know? For me it's being torn between 2 worlds. I love my country and I miss my beautiful island of Margarita and my life there. I often said: "I'm living the life of a millionaire without the millions". There's a problem living there. My family isn't there. I've left my beautiful island for some personal reason, I have my family close, I can see them and call them whenever I want. Problem? I'm not home.

There's no easy answer.

You ready for my morning chronicle? Ok, grab yourself a cup of coffee, and here we go ...

Being a cynic or a pessimist is not classy

It's not even attractive. My opinion? A killjoy is usually more along the line of a self-absorbed immature person.

You look at the world and you can tell yourself, realistically the world it is full of sadness and imperfection, weakness and malice. Yea ok. Realistically? Isn't it half a picture?

When you can look at something, anything, and see potential, something to love and appreciate, now that is class. Any fool can find fault and turn their nose on life. Really, you don't need skills to tear down.

You want to be classy? Attractive?

Simple. Be positive.You want to be realistic? Nothing wrong with that. See the positive possibilities.

There is always disadvantages and drawbacks. There are even moments that are not so pleasant. But in my opinion, there's an equal side to everything. Focus on the bad and the bad is what you will see. See the potential and beauty and there's a spectrum of imagination and creation at your disposal.

Negativity is limiting

Loving, creative, positivity is limitless because it has so much room to grow and the more it grows, the more possibilities it gains.When you feel yourself going down the negative route, stop, think. A frown and a scowl has never looked sophisticated or classy on anyone.

Instead of feeling irritated, be amused. Instead of feeling envious, feel appreciation, esteem. When things upset you, use that negative energy together with action and turn it around. You change it for the better. Be productive and pro-active.

If you can develop THAT kind of class, nothing will keep you down long because with everything that can bring you down, you will see the side that can lift you up. Live to your highest level of sophistication by living with a positive perspective. You'll be a winner. Anyway, you'll have my vote.

Pick of the day ...

Time for the song of the day. Today I pick ... Live, Laugh, Love by Clay Walker

Well, my beautiful, classy friends, I wish you all a walk on the sunny side of the street lol. Be good to one another and don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given for everyone to do so.

And please, please please ... don't forget the most important thing before heading out into the world ...

SMILE! ... because you're on life's candid camera!
