Deciding to be more positive...

It's been a rough few days at work. My new principal seems great, but being through this before, I'm having a hard time accepting that it's truly his intent and not a show.That makes me feel AWFUL, because he doesn't deserve that.

I'm also having a hard time being nice to the people at work that are causing drama. Causing my VP to be upset. She's a great person and I hate seeing her that way.

In my year end wrap up post, I wrote that I hope 2013 is as great as 2012 was for me. I can't let that goal go to waste. I let things get to me and that's not right or fair.

So starting today, I'm going to begin my positive journal again. It's helped in the past, and I hope it will help now.

The steps for my positive journal are pretty simple:

  • buy a super cute journal or even make one. I feel it makes it more fun!
  • think of three good things that happened that day. They can be little or big, superficial or deep, it doesn't matter. Just as long as they were good!
  • Write them down! It's neat to look back and see what made me smile. 
It's a challenge some days, but it's really worth it. Can't wait to share what positive things this helps me discover!

Amazing quote right? So much harder to do than say, but still completely true. Happy Saturday to all!


  1. I love it!!! I find myself wanting to be a positive person - always finding those silver lining moments - but it's hard to keep that up sometimes. Maybe this idea will work for me too! :)

  2. Ooh. Im going to use my smash book as my positive journal. What a proactive way to be more positive.

  3. I'm working on being more positive too! I love the journaling idea!
