Banish Negativity

I am not a Pollyanna. I have bad days. I have days where the only living thing I like is my dog. I don’t walk around with a permanent smile on my face. And in case you hadn’t noticed, I have lots of opinions, and not all of them are positive. All of that being said, I am not a Nancy Negative either.
