Being Positive


The folks I work with have developed a collective negative attitude. I find it exceedingly depressing to listen to them kvetch every morning -- and then throughout the day. My boss, however, is Mr. Positivity and I've learned that, since he makes me feel happier to be around him, I'm better off adopting the positive attitude myself. Even when I don't feel particularly joyful.

"Good morning. How are you today?"
"Great! and you?"

This exchange usually causes a stare -- or a positive response. Once in a while I get the "awful, this day is hell" reply, but usually folks respond in kind.

The kids tell everyone they have the "happy teacher" -- you know, the one who smiles all the time. I hadn't realized they had noticed how hard I was working to be positive, but I feel good that they think I'm really a joyful person.

I'm not really -- at least not more joyful than the next person. But life is so much easier for everyone, if instead of griping all day long, you try to look on the bright side of things.

Just call me Pollyanna.
