Its Not All Rainbows and Unicorns

Its Not All Rainbows and Unicorns

I try to always keep things positive at Katherines Corner. I am an open minded and spiritual person who strives to always maintain a positive attitude and greet each new day with grace, dignity and gratitude. This is my mantra for life and I continue it here at my blog. I received a couple of emails over the past few months asking if my positive attitude was really me or just for the blog. It’s me baby, all me. I prefer to stay away from the dark. I am extremely empathic person.

You can read more about me HERE.

Yes, I am fully cognizant of my surroundings and the world’s atrocities. I know it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. But, Katherines Corner is a happy place. It’s not CNN blasting out the lasted horrors from around the globe. It’s recipes, family, friendships, photography, giveaways, encouragement and faith. It’s a place for sharing ( it’s right there in the header ). :-)

To those naysayers who poo poo on my happy place here at Katherines Corner and take the time to write such inquiries I simply say…… Surround yourself with what makes you happy, happiness is a conscious choice and you are welcome here.


“Happiness is when what you believe, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

    I think anyone who has blogged has probably received a negative comment at one time or another. Same with email. It happens.

    1. Katherines Corner

      true :-)

  2. Brenda

    I have received negative comments when it came to posting photos of my weight loss. Some people just can’t seem to know that we are all works in progress. I love your mantra.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you and I am sorry you have received negativity. The name of your blog is an inspiration too. xo

    I think this is a wonderful view point to take. Yes, life isn’t always wonderful, but it’s all we’ve got and if we come from a privileged position then what is the point of being miserable? Lovely post!

    1. Katherines Corner

      thank you, hugs!

  4. Janine Huldie

    Yes, I think we all have from one time or another and I am like you always try to stay so very positive. It is just who I am too and probably why I just love you Katie!! :)

    1. Katherines Corner

      thank you and right back atcha!

    Negatives go with blogging I suppose. People are cynical today. Happy is best. It is uplifting.

    I blog a lot of rainbows…and happiness so yes….I’ve gotten the nasty comments, too. Some people just can’t stand to see others happy. Too bad for them. I’ve been through a lot in my lifetime and now I’m at a happy place. There are blogs for every interest and every attitude. They should go find one that suits them. I love spending time here! Bring on the unicorns! heehee!

    1. Katherines Corner

      always happy to embrace your rainbows and unicorns too xo

  7. Jenn Sprouse

    Lord knows we need some encouragement and happiness!!

    1. Katherines Corner

      I hope you find some at Katherines corner xo

  8. thejoyofcaking

    Negative comments usually come from unhappy people who resent, or are insecure with someone else’s happiness. Carry on Katherine!

    1. Katherines Corner

      thank you hugs coming your way!

  9. aspiritofsimplicity

    I am a happy person by nature as well. I feel great sadness for those who are not happy with themselves or their lives. I give them as much slack as I can and then I forget about them….or perhaps move on is a better way of putting it. I learned long ago that i cannot control others. Only myself.

    I’ve had ugly comments on FB about features I’ve shared, and I then hit the delete button! Always enjoy your happy and encouraging spirit Katherine!

    1. Katherines Corner

      love that delete button, I use it too, giggle. xo

  11. Donna

    A soft answer turns away wrath. Don’t let the negative comments get to you. This is sometimes hard to do, but you know that you are doing what you are called to do. Enjoy it.

    1. Katherines Corner

      lovely, thank you and God Bless

  12. Queenie

    I’m right there with you… happiness is a choice and I choose happiness. There a whole world of media grey, rain clouds out there for folks of that leaning where they can hang out and wallow in the negative, so be it. Stay positive, stay true, stay you.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    1. Katherines Corner

      thank you and cheers to rainbows! xo

  13. Rosey

    In answer to your questions, yep, I’ve gotten ‘em, and that’s fine, I prefer to focus on the positive too. I love coming over here to see your rainbows and unicorns. :)

    1. Katherines Corner

      I love sharing them with you xo

    We all need an oasis – a place to refresh ourselves so we can hold our ground with the challenging world and people around us. I gravitate toward positive people for a reason. So glad to spend a few minutes on your site each day as a reminder of the civility and kindness I work hard to maintain in my and my family’s life.

    1. Katherines Corner

      honored to know Katherines corner is an oasis in the dessert of chaos we all call the internet. xo

      I think so too xo

  17. Alex J. Cavanaugh

    You just keep your happy place! There’s enough negative in the world. (And why can’t CNN blast some happy news more often?)
    I try to keep my blog a place of positive. I want people to feel good when they visit and even better when they leave. And that’s how I act in real life as well.
    The world isn’t rainbows but people need to see a rainbow now and then or they lose hope.

    1. Katherines Corner

      thank you for your continued positive friendship. xo

    I love your happy place. There is so much negativity in the world. It is so nice to have a place to go where you are allowed to be happy. I think so many people want to be grumpy. I have avoided too much negativity on my blog. What I have seen are doubters and people who disagree with our Real Food diet because they eat another way.

    1. Katherines Corner

      i love yours too ♥

  19. Missy

    I’m really surprised I have not received any negative comments yet, but my blog is growing, so I am sure I will sometime. :)

    1. Katherines Corner

      hoping the negativity avoids you completely. Hugs

  20. Tamara

    You go, girl! I personally think your blog is realistic. I love your photos and stories and recipes. If I wanted the opposite, yes I’d go to CNN. I haven’t had too many negative comments but I do admit it ruins my day when it happens!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you. I do my best to always focus on the positive comments and emails. I refuse to let it ruin my day because comments like yours outweigh the negative every time xo

  21. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    I couldn’t agree with you more. Happiness is always a choice. Other people and situations can bring you down if you give them (it) permission. Good post.

    1. Katherines Corner

      I refuse to give them permission, LOL big hugs!

  22. ColleenB.

    Love Everything about your blog and yet you will always find some people with negative feelings which tells me that they aren’t happy in their own life.
    Positive thoughts is the way to go.
    I was taught when I was child; if you have nothing positive good to say about someone or something then say nothing at all.
    Have a great day.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you so much. You are right sweet Colleen. Hugs!

  23. Angela

    One of the things I love about you and your blog is that it is always a positive spot to visit!! Even your post today has a positive spin on it! You, my friend, are one of a kind and to the naysayers, I feel sorry for them as they do not know love, faith and happiness and they envy you! Keep your chin up!! :) ~~Angela

    1. Katherines Corner

      your words wrap a hug around me, thank you

    I haven’t received a negative comment yet, but then again I don’t have a very large blog yet. Some people struggle so much with being negative and suffering their way through life, that they can’t believe others could for real be that happy. I relate to what you say here, as I too live the same way in life and also have a happy inspirational type of website. It is all just what we focus on in life. People don’t realize they have the power to focus on the good every day (a choice). My life is not all rainbows either, but It is what I create it to be- which is beautiful in itself (tough stuff and all). I too am empathetic and I can tell you are , as you are always so kind to take time to visit others blogs , leave comments, and pay attention to people. I appreciate your blog and your positive outlook. I think you and your blog are great just the way they are!
