A friend of mine said to me the other day that, sometimes, my positive attitude drove him nuts. It was just too much to handle. It literally made me think…. WHAT?? I thought about it. I mean really and truly thought about it day and night for weeks. Yes, it bothered me. My conclusion? I would much rather find a positive way to look at things then to dwell on the negative. Of course, I don’t need to verbalize it all the time. I think that is a good compromise, don’t you?
Here is another thought:
“The alphabet has twenty-six letters. Those twenty-six letters can create an infinite amount of combinations, those combinations are words. Whether we speak or write, how we utilize those words affect others. Each word is actually an opportunity and gives us the power to touch someone’s life in any way we choose.” ~K of The Black Wall Blog
When we express ourselves, we can make someone’s day better by telling a joke to make them laugh (or groan lightheartedly), give praise, teach, inspire, console or to give a heartfelt compliment. So, why is it that so often the words that people choose, are meant to create a negative feeling ? People use them to blame, criticize, degrade and belittle, all which are such hurtful uses for the twenty-six based infinite combinations.
So I would like to suggest that just for today, lets make a pact. A pact, to use those infinite combinations to not only express ourselves for the sake of writing and blogging, but for a feel good act. Let’s pull together and share our thoughts and feelings to pay them forward in a positive way. Today, let’s take the time to help someone feel good about themselves and inspire them to have an overwhelmingly magnificent day!!
