Candid Chatter

Just Say It

Positive Tuesday May 6, 2008

Filed under: Life... The Way I See It — candidchatter @ 6:41 am

Ok so I’m reading this really good book (thank you SW) right now about how to stop the negative internal chatter. So I decided while reading it yesterday that I would start a new thing on here that’s loosely related. See, Carey girl, I think of things to write on here all the time — little snidbits of my thoughts throughout time. Things are always developing. Neverending stream of new topics.

POSITIVE TUESDAY!!

Here is how to play along. You must find something positive to say to someone today right in the midst of being ticked off by them. I tried this yesterday. It changed the whole environment. My kids were ON MY NERVES. Instead of hollaring at them to do whatever I said, “hey kids, you are smart, beautiful, funny, bold, and I love you with all my heart”. It changed my mindset and they started getting along and sharing. Ha! Amazed me.

After you do this thing on Positive Tuesday come here and tell me about it. Let’s encourage each other to stand in the face of negativity and LAUGH OUT LOUD (LOL).

Now go

Go be positive

Go love an enemy

Go put your heart out there

    Well it’s almost 3:00 and I can’t add anything here. I am incredibly bee-otchy today. The kids are sleeping. If they behave while we’re at the mall this evening I might have some good things to add. If they don’t behave I might just have to run over a few old ladies with the double stroller.

    One of my fellow church ministry partners said when she heard me tell my kids they were getting on my nerves, “I’ve been there — a lot — these kids — well, they will make you sin”. ROFL!! I thought that was absolutely hysterical (and true)!!
