The Ultimate Clean Slate-Part Two

My second goal for the year, and really, this should be for life, is to look for the positive.  By requesting to write a positive and inspiring blog post for her blog, my friend Kirsten has inspired me to find that positive in my life.  It is there.  It's made itself known several times this year, mainly in the area of my running.  It needs to find it's way into my everyday life.  I have to find a way to make it so.

This may seem strange to some people.  Some folks were just born with a glass is half full outlook.  Some people have to work at it.  I am one of those people.  So the first step for me will be to make a conscious effort to think positively.  I can't allow myself to look at things in a negative light anymore.  I can't allow myself to automatically default to the worst case scenario.  I have to re-adjust my perspective. Perhaps that means I need to make a list of positives every day; focus on the good in my life rather than the bad.  Either way, it's time for some re-framing.  As my husband says, there are no setbacks, only opportunities for growth.

2012 will be the year that my glass becomes half full, of that I'm most positive.
