From the moment I woke up this morning I made a conscious decision not to be negative today. As a result, I felt no pressure to be a certain way or to do and act a way that would impress others. I was able to relax and experience the day, even if work was a little stressful, I felt an inner calm. I decided to listen to people and spoke to various colleagues. I really listened and found joy in experiencing them as people and individuals, listening to them and truly appreciating them. People can sense when you really see them, and they respond. In a good way.
There is goodness in everyone. Some are just better at repressing their goodness than others. I suppressed my negativity today and it felt good. I felt gentle and soft; feminine. Not harsh, out of control or verging on losing control of my emotions. If this is what a positive attitude can accomplish, I’m looking forward to tomorrow for the first time in a long time.
When I arrived home I struggled to hold on to the positive although I never gave in to negative. As if my friend sensed my moment of weakness from afar, he sent me the above picture. It truly made my day. I’m not the most beautiful woman to have ever walked this planet, nor do I think I’m the most amazing, but I know I’m on the right path now to unlock my potential. I will love and give unconditionally, therefore not expecting it in return. I’m starting to love myself again. Just enough; not too much and never too little again.
