)This is a post that was written earlier this week when it was actually nice out and not snowing)
Today is just one of those days when everyone I encounter is just in a grouchy mood despite the amazing weather and sunshine out. I've tried to park in 3 different parking spots before realizing that others had parked taking up multiple spaces, one lady decided it would be okay to steal the parking spot I had been waiting for, and I got yelled at for taking one extra second to say 'thank you' to someone for (barely) holding the door open for me.
Luckily I've been in such a positive mood lately that things like this haven't really been getting to me. I get that people may be having bad days blah blah blah but IT TAKES 0% EFFORT TO BE A DECENT HUMAN BEING!
As I'm writing this there's a man yelling at the barista at this coffee shop for making his drink iced instead of hot even though I heard him clearly asked for an iced latte.
What I don't understand is why people who are in a rotten mood pass it on to others they encounter throughout the day. I get that we don't know what anyone may be going through but is that really a reason for a complete stranger to yell in your face for no apparent reason? We wouldn't get strangers involved in our personal problems so why pass negative energy on to a stranger? Personally I think we can all just fake a smile once in a while and be nice to people! Who knows maybe by being polite to those around you will put you in a better mood and make you feel better!
I'm not going to sit here and say I didn't get super annoyed or that I wasn't tempted to yell back at that lady earlier today, but I don't see the point in ruining my day because someone else is in a bad mood. Of course people are probably dealing with worse than I am, but having a positive mindset no matter how bad your day is going is so important! With all of these terrible crimes being committed around the world and in our own country, with hate becoming seemingly more prominent in our communities, we all NEED to spread the positive vibes and that starts with the random people we encounter on a daily basis. We're all human!
I have a lot more to say about this topic so you'll be seeing a video about this on my YouTube channel very soon!
