Today, I was in a mommy and me class and one of my fellow moms didn’t show up. I was bummed because she is one of the only cool mom’s in the class. Then one mom started to talk about how she probably missed the class because she is going through a horrible divorce which is probably why their son isn’t crawling and they probably got a divorce because the woman never takes a shower and blah blah blah.
I wanted to shout at her and say some kids don’t crawl but walk early. Some kids crawl early but walk late. How could the divorce be effecting the child’s crawling and maybe the reason they are getting a divorce is because the husband cheated on her so maybe it is better for the child that they divorce and what does showering have to do with it and WHAT MOM HAS TIME TO TAKE A SHOWER EVERYDAY… oh and SHUT THE F*** UP.
Instead, I just mummbled, “You are mean. Haven’t you ever seen Bambi?” Everyone shut up and looked at me like I was the crazy one.
I love Bambi even though it is a scary story but who can resist cute animals? I love when Thumper’s mom reminds him of what his Dad said which is “If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.” I love this and try to follow it everyday.
But now I want to take it a step forward because I need to get rid of some negativity in my life. So from now on…
If I don’t have anything nice to listen to I won’t listen at all
If I don’t have anything nice to read I won’t read at all
And if I don’t have anything nice to watch I won’t watch anything at all
This may not make complete sense to everyone but it does to me because if you pay attention to the negativity it only gets worse and ruins your day. And then the negativity gets exactly what it wants attention and a sad you! So today I am going to start only allowing nice things into my life.
