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.
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).
Go be positive
Go love an enemy
Go put your heart out there
