Good Morning, Attitude

4 years ago

My name is Hannah. I'm 25 (just shy of 26), a college graduate, full time employeed in a managerial type job, happy boyfriend of almost 2 years... and a victim of life. Yes, I said it, I'm a victim of life. Or that's what I have been thinking for the past 3 or so years. It really hurts to say that. I'm the girl that bemoans the fact that I've gained 15 pounds while eating a candy bar, the girl that cries when her boyfriend isn't perfect (even though he is!!!), I'm the girl that hates my job while not doing anything to change it.

And I'm the girl that's about to push that other girl down.

How enlightening is it to realize that you are the problem, not the world? For me, very. This may not make much sense to many people but to me, it makes every bit of sense in the world. How many of us go through life just hoping from one bad experience to another and blaming everyone else and pushing my hurt and disappointment on to every other person in my life... instead of taking the blame on myself and changing my attitude. 

But this isn't going to be one of those blogs or posts about my problems and rants and venting, this is going to be about how I'm going to overcome them. How I'm taking the bull by the horns and taming my pessimism, my tongue, attitude, and temper. This is the story of how Hannah got her groove back and started loving life (the good and not so good side). 

I think everyone around me could potentially benefit from this brand new development. Poor boyfriend would be less stressed and frazzled, friends could feel more secure, family more grateful for my help, and just people in general... you never know I could brighten someones day!!!!

P.s I can't wait until I get the hang of this bLogging thing... haha
