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!

TV Inspiration

I think I may watch too much TV, because the things that inspire me tend to be from the boob-tube…(As long as I’m thinking and not just zoning out, I suppose it doesn’t matter too much, right? haha.)

Anyways, we were watching (and by we, I mean my boyfriend) Rocky III; and while I don’t enjoy Sly’s muttering and poutiness throughout this movie, I caught the part of the movie when he is giving up, saying that it’s too hard to train and he’ll do better tomorrow. His trainer says, “There IS no tomorrow!” I was having a pouty day myself, and so this struck me as inspirational. It’s true. All we have is this very minute, and I argue with myself every day to justify sleeping an extra 30 minutes, or eating that extra slice of pizza, or drinking that second (or third) glass of wine. “Tomorrow” is an easy argument for anything, and it does not help us to accomplish anything at all! Why push off until tomorrow, the things we can accomplish today? I have a million unfinished projects due to my procrastination, when the fact is that I could make great progress on most any project in a day’s time. It’s easy to wait and complain. But all it takes is the tiniest bit of effort to get the ball rolling, and then all of a sudden, good things are happening all around you!

My second bit of TV inspiration comes from a football commercial, when they show kids training for the game, and they keep saying, “One More.” One more…anything, one more everything. Going above and beyond, always pushing yourself to the limit.

Excuses are not acceptable, because I know deep down that I am in control of every aspect of my life, through every action, inaction, and reaction. My life and happiness is what I make it. Deep sigh...everything is going to be okay...

My wonderful friend Sharon gave me this little nugget of wisdom a couple weeks ago, and when I'm white-knuckling my way through a stressful day or never-ending project, this gets me through: "How Do You Eat An Elephant?...One Bite At A Time"
