The other day one of my clients was picking up her kid and she noticed the huge salmonberry bush just outside the back gate that was covered in big, juicy, ripe berries. She said “Ooh, salmonberries!” and plucked the plumpest, reddest one, but right before she popped it into her mouth she got all sour-faced and said “They never really get ripe though.” I just don’t get it! Confronted with FREE DELICIOUS BERRIES and all she can say is something crabby? How depressing! And just never mind the fact the the berry she was holding was totally ripe! Negative people bum me out, BUT their energy-sucking grumpiness does have an upside: it reminds me of the importance of staying positive!
