Another quotable quote – this time from an actress !
Drew Barrymore may not always sound like the brightest bulb, but I do like what she says here –
I like projecting positivity. I believe that we are all fields of energy and you have the choice whether to be a positive or negative field of energy. I know that sounds hippie-ish but it's what I believe fundamentally. So you could be a bag of toxicity, or you could be a happy, good person that spreads joy. I believe in spreading joy.
and then goes on to say –
Everybody goes through hardships and it’s your choice how to deal with them. Your choice should be to progress and to evolve, and to handle things with some level of graciousness. Yeah, life is hard sometimes – but I think you probably have to just realize, you know, that someone is probably experiencing something more difficult and to please work past it as expediently as possible.
I think this couldn’t be truer. You may not control the fact that there’s a problem, but you can control how you respond to it. And realizing that things can always be worse is a great way to keep your perspective on life.
I definitely have a few friends like that who positively sprinkle joy as they go through life, and after meeting them, I always come back feeling really great and upbeat…
Nothing like a little laughter to make the world go round 🙂
