Not as I did…
Last night I allowed something to happen. I went out in great spirits. I had a great dress, hair professionally blow dried, smile on my face. I was excited to see my friends, have some cocktails and socialize. The event was a monthly Happy Hour at one of my Buckhead favs, New York Prime. I had two seats reserved for me and my BFF at my “spot” at the baaah.
After arriving, I immediately started chatting with whomever was around me. Steve had my place and my drink ready. All was good, so I thought. As time passed a negative vibe infiltrated my space. One little event after the next got under my skin. Before you know it, I was a rip roaring bitch. From the outside, I must have turned into the wicked witch of the west. That’s how I felt.
I let a perfectly wonderful start turn into an evening of bitching because I couldn’t laugh shit off. I let the negative influences of people’s behavior and words as well as little irritants like waiting on a cab turn my lemonade sour.
Toward the end of the evening, one of my good friends who bore the brunt of my bitching, told me to relax. He was obviously feeling my nastiness. I went to bed a bitch. Ugh!
I have learned a tremendous lesson: you get more with honey than vinegar. I lived it last night. Being with me last night was like drinking straight vinegar.
So what am I going to do about it? I have choices. I can continue being negative and beat myself up for wasting a wonderful outfit, hairdo and time being witchy poo. However, I choose this: I am moving on. Brushing it off. Today is a new day, and I am starting fresh. I am working today then hosting dinner at my home.
I refuse to carry last night into today. Last night I allowed negativity to rule my world. Today, I am ruling my world with love and positivity. I am sorry I allowed this to happen. I forgive myself and move on.
I love you all dearly! Have a fab, positive day.
Tell me what’s going on in your life. I want to hear from you.
Wishing you love, balance and peace!
Amore & Baci,
