A friend posted this yesterday morning on Facebook and it's so perfect I just had to share. This lovely lady is one of the most positive people I've ever known which makes her call to action all the more fascinating. I've spent years working on the lessons of change. Most of the time I approach change with great reluctance and even resentment. "Why am I always the one who has to change?"--that's my usual wail. But this note got me thinking that making little changes in myself has a positive ripple effect that impacts my work, my environment and my relationships. This is really all about forgiveness and that starts in my own heart. I've committed to join Listen In and Think Positive!
Here's the post:
"Woke up this morning feeling like starting my own little grassroots movement for the month of March 2012. I invite you to join me to Listen In and Think Positive! for the entire month of March. Ever wonder how many thoughts floating around in your oh so active mind are positive? How many are negative? I invite you to join me this entire month in taking a second to take notice - to track those pesky little thoughts and to make a change - Listen In and Think Positive!
Is there a person in your life that whenever they walk towards you down the hall they just always ruffle your feathers? Stop and listen in - think about one thing about that person you appreciate and are grateful for, and smile:-) Feeling overwhelmed with your life? Stop and listen in - think about one thing about yourself that you are intensely grateful for, and smile:-) Is there a person close to you who is getting you down? Stop and listen in - think about one piece of information that person has shared with you that you are grateful for and possibly even treasure, and smile:-) Is the bus late again, or traffic at a standstill? Stop and listen in - look up, don't think, just look at the nature around you and share some gratitude for the intense beauty in the world, and smile:-)
LIKE if you commit to joining Listen In and Think Positive! for the month of March 2012:-)"
