Forgive me Facebook friends of Apozitude. I’m writing a blog based on the intro I wrote to a blog I posted last week, but I really liked it and I thought it needed to be expanded upon a bit further. By all means you don’t have to physically do this exercise. You’re certainly welcome to simply visualize this, but if you think physically doing it would be more powerful for you, you go right on ahead and do it. So, here we go.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a bad day. Keep your hand up or raise it again if you ever wanted to escape a situation. I know this seems silly, but stick with me here. Ok, raise your hand if you ever wanted someone to sweep you away from it all.
Wait a minute. Hold the show. I have to switch gears here folks, because I have to be honest with you. If I were reading this blog right now, I’d have my hand in the air. I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and stressed out lately. Honestly, I’m having a difficult time figuring out how to transition the beginning of this blog into something of value for you all.
Somehow I get the feeling that the most value would come from me being completely honest. Right now, this very second that I am typing out these words, I don’t have a positive attitude. I’m exhausted and I’ve struggled through my day today.
BUT!!!! Tomorrow is another day and I’ll get up tomorrow and try again. For now I’m going to spend a couple minutes focusing on what made me smile today. A text message from my wife of our puppy playing at the park. A picture of my little goodness playing in the swimming pool at her Auntie Shell’s house. A hug from my best friend. My puppy coming home from his best friend’s birthday celebration and the unbending unending love and support from my wife. Thank you all for your positive contributions to my life. I’m grateful.
