Is Your Cup of Folgers Coffee Half-Empty or Half-Full?

I am loving Folgers right about now.

As you've seen me post about recently, Folgers has come up with a new social media platform called "The Best Part."  They're asking us to talk about the best part of our day or something positive we can reflect on.  As a life-long cynic, trying to be more positive lately is really helping my outlook.  I know, who would have thought it?



There have been events of late that have put my positive outlook to the test.  These events can make or break me, I've decided... so I'm posting some stressful situations I've encountered recently and the bright side I've found to them.


I gave birth to a child and didn't have time for an epidural.  Holy gravy, was that a rough night.

The bright side? I have the daughter I always wanted.  Also, I found out that under extreme pain, I can shriek like a howler monkey.  Good information to know.


The house we moved into doesn't have a mailbox so we have to use a post office box.  The post office is, like, a whole block away.  My laziness is really taking a hit here.

The bright side?  I met the Postmaster for my local post office.  She's just about the friendliest person ever.


My oldest son is having some trouble with multiplication tables.  Aren't we all?


The bright side?  I have spent a lot of one-on-one time with him, teaching him all the multiplication tricks I learned in third grade.  Who knew that stuff would ever come in handy?


My husband has been off work since the baby was born.  Paternity leave... he's driving me up the wall.


The bright side?  My husband changes diapers like a madman.  I don't have to ask for any help with the baby or the other two kids, he leaps right in and does the work.  That. Is. Awesome.


So, you see?  There's always a bright side to things, we just have to find it.  Find a bright spot today, it will change your whole attitude!

  1. This was a fun post. Sorry the delivery was so painful, but yeah, you got that baby girl! :-) I do tend to see the glass half full and the solution to problems - which I think is annoying to a lot of people. LOL


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
