Positivity is my number one strength according to StrengthsQuest.™ Part of the description reads: “Somehow you can’t quite escape your conviction that it is good to be alive.” How true is that?!?! If you know me, you know I find the “good” in every experience.

But that doesn’t mean that I don’t have my bad days. We all have them.
There’s a new pop song from Despicable Me 2* that is a delight. It pretty much sums up how I feel about life.

*I’ve never seen either Despicable Me movie, but I have to admit that those minions are just darn cute.

If you enjoy my blog and would like to follow me on Facebook, I can be found at The Reluctant Survivor. And on Twitter @relucsurvivor.


  1. They sure are cute. Bet you can get the movie on Netflix.

  2. They are cute. I have seen both Despicable Me movies. I have a son in the right age range. I didn't connect the song to the movie when you mentioned it, but now I remember. And "positive" definitely describes you!
