Negative Nelly

Lately, I've been a little negative.

My negatively is mostly related to doing stuff.

For example, I dread tennis, I'm not excited about happy hour, I'm less than thrilled with having to get dressed and go to that party.

This is not like me.

I have to stop myself and think, "Ashley, what is wrong with you? It's beautiful day and you love tennis?!"

So anyways, the situation usually plays out like this: It's Friday night and Boyfriend is very excited about happy hour. I hem and I haw and I sigh loudly. Eventually, we go out and 99% of the time, I have a great time.

All of that negativity for nothing- it's exhausting and I think it makes me look like a bit of a jerk.

I need help staying positive.

Does this ever happen to any of you, and what do you do to keep positive?

Um.. that's me about 99% of the time. I dread doing something like going out and then end up having a grand time. Usually hubby has to remind me that I will have a good time, even if I think I won't. If you figure out how to deal with this, please let me know.

I know, I don't know what's wrong with me. I just have no interest in anything.... at least until I get there =)

I'd love to help you out but I'm struggling from the exact same thing these days. I can't seem to get excited about anything. The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that I'll turn into a big lump of boringness if I don't get out of the house. I just remind myself that I'm always glad I decided to go.
