When’s the last time you were spontaneous? How did it turn out? Hopefully, you found value in taking quick action. I’m making the effort to add spice into my routine by taking last minute invitations to do this or that or to abruptly stop what I’m doing and get out and about to do something UNplanned that’s fun. Whether it’s a quick trip to the local thrift shop just because, or it’s an unexpected road trip, it’s a treat to just do it! Get out there and exercise your spontaneous muscles. Even just a slight deviation from what’s typical for you can add just the special treat in life that you need. Go for Positive!
P.S. Someone sent me this 21 day meditation challenge that starts on Dec. 1. I spontaneously registered for it. It sounds interesting & it’s something (meditation) I’ve only done a few minutes a day here or there. Thought I’d pass it on to you in case it interests you too: http://www.mentorschannel.com/bestsellers/ew_meditation/register.asp

In life it seems that the most growth comes from discomfort. Whether it’s standing in front of a group of people saying an impromptu speech or it’s experiencing a hellish time in a relationship, the discomfort is part of the process which ultimately makes us learn, grow, and move forward and upward to a better place in life. Whatever you might be going through right now is exactly where you need to be. And, it’s all in design to make an even better you. Go for Positive!
P.S. Happy Thanksgiving!

I often am still in awe of how we really affect one another just by how we show up in a room. Ever notice how comforting it is to be near someone who emits gentle, kind energy? Don’t you just want to stay near them to bask in the great effects that their energy has on you? Then there’s those whose energy is hyper and jittery and just being near them makes you feel jittery too. And, of course, there’s those who are feeling down and their demeanor and energy totally reflect how they’re feeling which can easily have a downer effect on you too.
Given how impactful each of us is on one another, it has been suggested that when we feel less than our best, (before entering a room), take a quick moment to breathe deeply to recalibrate ourselves, think of something wonderful that puts a smile on our face, imagine a postive outcome of our meeting with those who are in the room we are about to enter, and walk thru that door with a better energetic field. Woo hoo! Go for Positive!

Don’t you just hate when shit happens? Me too! I find that it helps to (a) search for at least a kernal of something positive in every (negative) situation/experience; and then (b) shift the focus to that positive aspect so that it’s easier to move forward feeling empowered. Challenge yourself to reframe the situation by finding the “plus in the minus,” so to speak, as FAST as possible! Yes, go ahead find the “plus” as quickly as possible the next time you’re faced with an obstacle. Reframe it, Baby! Go for Positive!
