Are You A Grumpy Cat?

Are you a Grumpy Cat? You may be wondering what on earth I am talking about and I really don’t know. You see sometimes I see an image I love, add a title and then let the words flow once I designed the image for the post. Yeah, yeah, I bet that’s not the way many people work but it’s one of my methods of just letting the words flow and writing whatever I feel.

Well, I recently saw a whole load of meme’s about a grumpy cat. A cat who never looks happy and is seriously bitter. The meme’s are funny but in reality if these were truly this cat’s thought’s she would be one miserable creature.

Grumpy Meme’s can be funny but if your grumpy and negative all the time or even some of the time in real life it can make for an unhappy life and unhappy family. As my husband likes to say, happy wife, happy family, happy life.

It’s true. We really have the power to be positive or to be negative about each and every situation we face. This post is being shared now but was actually written and is being written whilst I’m in hospital and it’s a pretty miserable time for me. However I am choosing to stay positive and focus on the good. I am focussing on getting well, on what I can do while I am hear in my quiet moments and what I can do to better myself in the coming months.

I think being negative or a “sour puss” can really put people off you. It’s great to moan, to have a rant and even complain but when someone does this too often, for me it can drive a wedge between our relationship and make me want to distance myself.

Negative energy can rub off on people and I like and try to surround myself with positive influences and non grumpy people. I do know of one person who is so grumpy that I actively avoid conversations. It’s not that I don’t like them it’s just when everything you have to say is so so negative it can create a yucky feeling inside, one I prefer not to feel.

I hope my blog is a positive and inspirational place. That is my aim and while I will have a moan from time to time and complain and speak out about issues of importance I think I do a good job of not being a grump… until of course it is bedtime and I’m overtired and then sometimes the Grumpy cat might just come out.

  1. I completely agree, staying positive in a negative situation is hard but really is the best thing for your mental and physical health! Best of luck to you in your journey!

  2. I really don’t like it but unfortunetly I am a Grumpy Cat more often I would like to be! But working on it 😉

  3. I am definitely a grumpy cat. I try to focus on the good but always go back to what is wrong in the world/life/around me. I know that this isn’t the way that I should act, but all of the negativity gets to me and makes me negative.

  4. Haha.This is a cool and your blog really bring a positive feeling in me.At times,i may feel angsty when i didnt get a certain job done or when feeling tired.Great advice thank you for sharing!

  5. Unfortunately I am a Grumpy cat but I am not that grumpy. There are things that is going on in my life that makes me grumpy but I love life. There is always going to ups and down!

  6. Nope. I am not. I am a free spirit that goes with the flow most days… too free sometimes according to my hubby. lol. I can be an annoyed cat from time to time.

  7. I completely understand this post staying positive in a negative situation can be tough, but sometimes necessary for mental health. I wish you the best for your journey!

  8. I hope I’m not a grumpy cat but I know I have been at times. I try to catch myself when I’m in a whiny stage from pain and remind myself that no one wants to hear about my pity party, lol.

  9. This was a great read. I try to stay positive most of the time. Though its hard, I feel its the best way to get through the day without stress consuming you.

  10. It’s so true, negative energy really is a put off to those around it. I’m not naturally positive but I try to be intentional about speaking that way.

  11. Emotions take energy and whatever we feed it grows. That is why the sages teach us to be vigilant and learn to lighten up. People who complain, gossip, gripe, whine, report every silly thing get stuck in that space and it’s hard to let go…. we must be vigilant.

  12. Life is so much better when we are not grumpy! I feel the more grumpy we are the more grumpy we get because that is what we keep attracting towards ourselves ❤️

  13. I’m usually pretty optimistic… not grumpy at all. But I do know some grumpy people and it is not pleasant. The cat pics were scary tho lol
