We have the opportunity on the daily to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Whether one goes through their day searching for good deeds to be done,
or simply takes advantage of random opportunities to spread love,
every action (or inaction) has a resounding impact.
The question is: Is your impact today going to be positive, negative, or indifferent?
I have been told that one person can't make a difference.
I affectionately call these people "dummies"...
Those who actively try to hold the rest of us down,
those who would rather watch you drown than help you soar, those who can't grasp the power of positivity to create change.
Whether it's a great recipe found, or an uplifting story to share, you can be sure to find it here.
Let's start a Positivity Revolution, and drown out the dumb!

Whole-Assing It

My parents always told me growing up, "Don't do a job half-assed." (Typing this out, it actually seems like something my dad would say...)

Perhaps it's a little crude, but this advice always stuck in the back of my mind, and I've recently decided it's the (welcome) culprit of my obsessive behavior. When I take on a project, I try to throw myself into it, "whole-assed". If I can't, I stop, reassess, and decide if it's worth pursuing.

My ever-observant boyfriend was the one who pointed this out the other day, although it should have been long-evident (which I made sure to mention). If we're making food for a party, you'd better believe those recipes will be tested weeks beforehand. Presentations are practiced ad nauseam, Google is used with a passion for any and every unknown question, and blog posts are scrutinized before hitting 'Publish'. ;)

The point is, yes I may be obsessive, A.D.D., and a little neurotic...but I wouldn't have it any other way.
