Negativity and mean people

Why? Such a bummer that there are so many people out there that have to give their negative opinions on everything. If I see something that I don’t want or don’t like, I move on. Others don’t. They must have boring lives or loads of hate and anger.

Here’s what I’m talking about. I created chocolate jewelry. Fun idea. That’s all it was. A friend was catering a fancy kids’ party and we were tossing around ideas. I came up with chocolate, edible jewelry.

It’s fabulous. It’s also time consuming to make, and not intended to be cheap and I never thought everyone would want it. I have gotten press from all over the world for it, and sold some pieces and it has been a fun addition to my jewelry line.

There are actually blogs and sites out there that go on and on about it being too expensive, etc. Whatever! Don’t buy it. I really hate that women so easily rag on other women and their ideas. I’m not the biggest burn your bra, women’s libber on earth, but really, isn’t it hard enough for women to have a business without having to be made fun of or put up with the haters?

I’m not a teenager anymore, and honestly, the way I  handle this type is to feel sorry for them. I feel that if you have that much hate, you must be having a miserable life. You don’t have to be negative forever though, you have the power to stop surrounding yourself with the mean girls and gossiping types.

Get out and improve your outlook! Have fun, do things that you want to do. Find friends and a mate that make you feel good about yourself. Don’t wear clothes that you don’t make you feel pretty  and happy. I swear if you try it, you can change your life, your outlook and quit wasting time being negative and mean to others.

When you’re negative and mean, the only one that looks bad is you. Choose to be nice and look for the good in everything and everyone. It makes your life less stressful and more beautiful. And that spare time you’ll have, try helping someone who needs to be picked up.

Pass it on. It’s a good feeling.

  1. I just found your blog because of the chocolate necklace, the one with the multiple malted milk balls. Is it practical for south Louisiana? Heck no. But you’ve summed up so much of what believe with this single post.

    The world is filled with ideas you won’t like, and things you find too expensive. That’s ok. You don’t have to like them, or to buy them. But why spend the energy to write a horrible, nasty comment specifically to hurt someone or spoil their day?

    Life is short. When something upsets you, try to let it go and look for beauty instead. If you think something is ugly, try to make something pretty of your own. Spread some joy, not hate.

    Your jewelry is beautiful and airy, and I love the look you’re going for. Thank you for putting more joy and beauty into the world!

    • Thank you for your comments! My only correction, is that you CAN wear the chocolate jewelry in Louisiana! It’s been tested in Miami in the summer. Now, I’m not saying you can run a marathon or stand facing the sun for a few hours, but in normal circumstances, and in Miami that means ducking in and out of the air conditioned cars and buildings in the summer, I swear, no melting! Thank you again for passing on the positivity! It’s what the world needs more of! Have a great week!
