Look at life through rose-colored glasses.
Think of the glass as half full.
It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? But being positive is one of those states of mind that I’m forever trying to achieve. Oh. I can be positive for an afternoon. A week even. But when things start to go wrong, when life begins to fray on its edges, my glass quickly becomes half empty, and those glasses fog over. Sometimes I feel bleak, drained, void. I give so much of myself–to my family, my work, my life–that refreshing myself, that being everything I know I can be, is a struggle. It’s so easy to be negative. But being positive could be so much more productive.
So when Roman Price, the founder of Life Pulp, contacted me about a 30 Day Challenge about shifting my frame of mind, I was intrigued. “I’m a firm believer in getting the mind right, and the body simply following,” Roman wrote me. “That’s why I created LifePulp.com, a site that puts the member in a positive state of mind.”
So here’s the Life Pulp Challenge for these 30 Days: I will read 10 inspirations each day from LifePulp.com. The inspirations are posted by the site’s members, and are usually a quote or brief thought with a complimentary photograph. And very simply, I will blog about my reactions, mind shifts, attitude changes, and life changes as they happen. If they happen. I’m leaving myself open to any and all feelings and happenings that may come. I’m approaching this mental challenge as a blank slate.
I should say up front that I’m not being paid by Roman or Life Pulp, so all the opinions will be mine and completely honest, as always. So we will all see where these 30 Days of positivity takes me.
This is my first all-mental challenge, and the possibilities are exciting. I’m ready for a shift, ready for whatever comes my way.
