With the holiday season upon us, I pose a challenge to each and every member of Active Rain.
All of us are bloggers and look to each other for inspiration and advice. With that in mind, I challenge you to post -at least- one positive blog a week. Once you've accomplished your weekly task see if you can take it daily. The point is to engage positive thoughts which create positive words which result in positive actions. We all know we can use that these days?! I am a firm believer in 'words have power'...use them wisely. Anyone who knows me knows that I say, "Speak it!" whenever they want something positive to develop in their lives. This is a small step in getting started.
I decided to post this entry after a routine visit to the gym. A place where I go daily to rejuvenate and energize my mind and body. But on this particular day, the instructor was uncharacteristically negative and started talking about the affairs of the world as if we were all doomed. Wouldn't you know it...her words were like poison through the air and the entire class deflated. Why? She just told us we were defeated so in turn, we responded. The class, which I take routinely, was much more difficult on this day because mentally, I had to overcompensate for the negatively she festered.
A simple example, yes...but still a valid one. Positive words invoke positive reactions just as negative ones invoke adverse reactions. Imagine the power we Active Rainers could have with spreading affirmation throughout the forum?
I start this challenge, now! :-)
