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!

Turning It All Around

One of my favorite quotes in the world comes from a movie. Yea, it's not the most scholarly thing to admit, but it's true! In "Vanilla Sky", Penelope Cruz says, "Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around." It points to the truth that there are an infinite number of possibilities that present themselves throughout our lifetime; it's up to us to act. Nothing ever happens by repeating what you did yesterday, your circumstance doesn't cause your unhappiness. The fact is, you chose this. Whether good or bad, every action or inaction, day in and day out, is a result of our decisions.

I could go in many different directions with this idea, but today it will be based on this story. This kid was an outcast at his school, he had lost his father and started fresh at a new school where he knew no one. He turned his situation around. He could have easily become the victim, but instead he turned to loving actions. So inspiring! Imagine if everyone took this kind of positive action to improve not only their immediate situation, but the lives of those they come into contact with, everyday.
