Keeping track of everything that goes right keeps our focus on our ultimate goal. Chin up and keep on!
I hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday!
Here’s my list for the week:
That’s what’s on my list today, what are you thankful for?
Having a rough day? Maybe you over slept or had a quiz in a class you weren’t expecting. These hiccups can really put a damper on our day, if we let them. We don’t have to let it though. We don’t have to start our day at a 2 and then by the time we go to bed register at a -50 (we’ve all done it, these are days when we think nothing will go right). If we choose to not be held down by the negative annoyances in our lives and find the good things we can turn our whole day around. Take a break for 2 minutes (It won’t even take that long) and think of 5 things that went right or are going well. Repeat them and add to the list!
Also, smile! Studies show that just the physical act of turning your lips into a smile can make you feel better!
No matter what happens, look for the positives. :)
Everyone loves to know they are appreciated now and then. Pay it forward and shower someone in gratitude! :)
Having a bad day? A bad week? We are halfway through the week and that means if you answered yes to either of these questions, it can only get better!
Take time to make a few lists of what you have done well and of as many “everyday” positives you can think of. These can be as simple as: whipped cream on hot chocolate, your favorite song coming on in traffic, or a kind smile. The more you focus on all the positives, big or small, the better your week will be.
We’re halfway through:change what you can, be positive for what you have.
