Yesterday did feel weird afterwards, maybe its just me but i expected more of a reaction from someone. This is where i miss Dad and his rah rah attitide. Dad always believed in Positivity..what is that now boys and girls? Well i will show you...
1. Characterized by or displaying certainty, acceptance, or affirmation: a positive answer; positive criticism.
2. Measured or moving forward or in a direction of increase or progress.
3. Explicitly or openly expressed or laid down: a positive demand.
4. Admitting of no doubt; irrefutable: positive proof.
I am not a fan of negativity. I used to find that whenever the Captain came in the room, he had the ability to suck the life right out of the room with his negativity. We do not thrive on negativity. I used to work at a pizza place and the owner loved a state of chaos in the store. When it became busy, he became negative. Many hockey coaches and sports coaches in general do this thinking it will make the team work harder, but in actuality it turns people against you and makes them not want to do anything for you. That is the way i used to feel at that particular job and at other places where i have been employed.
Many people just don't try, they just want to float through life like lumps of crap. In many ways over the last four years that is the way i have felt, working dead end jobs, english companies and hogwans. Sure i gained valuable teaching experience and there has been many positive notes like working for Acadia Alumni every year at Welcome Week, this year i represented Acadia Alumni on career day during Welcome Week and it was a very positive experience. Sometimes i wish i could give back, like go back to someplace like West Kings and speak to the students about my university experiences and life in the real world. Acadia always used to send some corporate shrill to do their business at my old high school everytime i enquired about it, but i would like to give back someday, somehow.
