Positive, with a Side of Snark

I've often been asked about my positive attitude.  To which I reply, "I'm not always positive."

I like to think of myself as honest.  Or, positive with a side of snark.

Not bad snark.  Not all snark is bad.  Some snark is just brutally honest.  With humor. 

It's my personal philosophy to try to see the silver lining in everything.  Even in the tough stuff.  Lost friendships?  They made me stronger and taught me to listen to my gut.  Bad autism day?  Don't forget to breathe and not take everything so seriously.  Be calm.  Trouble in other areas of my life?  Be very aware of how much good I have, and always try to find a way to laugh laugh laugh.

A good laugh can fix a lot.

And yes, sometimes I can't be positive.  Sometimes I'm snarky.  It's not always productive.  But it's always honest.  And real.  I'm always real.

And it all reminds me that I can't please all people all of the time.

So here I am, positive with a side of snark.  Take it or leave it.

I'll take it.  I like it!

And while I'm at it, I think I should think of a new word for "snark".  It sounds too negative.  Maybe "sploofy".  That sounds nice.  I don't know....I'll work on it and let you guys know what I come up with.


  1. I love your snark - I don't think you need a new word for it. Some people won't like it anyway (because you can't please all the people ) :)

    1. I think you're right! And not pleasing everyone is half of the snarky fun. Mwah ah ah!!! Thank you for commenting!
