It’s been a yucky past week and I’ve been swirling in the muck for a couple of days now. You know, those awful, swirling pits of quicksand that suck you in every so often, despite your best intentions. The last time this happened, I countered it by spearheading a One Week Only Online Special devoted to The Power of Positive Thinking.
Well, it’s high time to run that sucker again, my friend.
Wanna join me?
Aw, c’mon. You know you do.
Remember how much better you felt once you started focusing on all the good awesome wonderful stuff going on in your life and you stopped putting all your energy into all that yuckiness? I do, and damn, it felt great.
Besides, it’s February, that dark, dreariest of dreary winter months. Yikes! I mean it’s February: the days are getting longer, um, um, um…it’s almost Valentine’s Day….um…. OK, I’m a little rusty here, I admit it. But I’m gonna work on it and I hope you will, too.
OK, here we go. One week only, starting today: February 9th-February 16th.
Remember, I’m going to be sticking with the good stuff right alongside you. And I’ll be posting updates (or what I’m grateful for that day) under the comments section, to keep myself on task. Please! For the love of God, sign up alongside me! Help this poor sister get herself back on track!
(Cue Chariots of Fire theme song. Oh, by golly! We need some lighthearted laughter around here, dontcha think?)
Still not ready to sign up? Just see what this experiment can do! It slices, it dices, it even cuts through cardboard! All for the low, low price of …
that’s right! zilch, zip, nada.
But wait! There’s more….
Sign up today and you’ll even get a FREE GIFT to start you off. That’s right! My very own gratitude list for the day! Hurray!
Hurry! Don’t wait! This FREE gratitude gift can be yours– but only if you sign up right away! (Offer is absolutely transferable and good in 99 states except for Amazon.com; offer expires after one year or Nico’s quest to count o infinity, whichever comes first; offer may be shared or traded with family and friends; offer remains standing for as long as you remember and/or remind me about it; offer good for as long as you’re willing to read this annoying fine print.)
Day #1. What Tanja’s grateful for today:
- a long, hot shower
- my dog, who was oh so happily waiting for me when I got home
- my awesome friends, for listening to me kvetch
How about you?
If you need a little more inspiration, check out what I wrote last time around, back in July:
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea that you create whatever you’re focusing on. So, if–like me–you’ve been focusing on all the sucky parts of your life, you’re actually (drum roll, please) creating–that’s right!–more drama and yuckiness-to-come. But if you’re one of those more highly-evolved aliens–I mean human–beings out there who manage to focus on all the good you’ve got going on, well then, congrats!, you’re already well on your way to reeling in all those goodies coming your way.
If you live in Boulder, like I do, or any other Berkeley-type place where old hippies reside (and most of the population makes their living from body or spiritual work), then you’ll already understand what I’m talking about. If not, you’re going to think I’m nuts.
All I’m asking is that you try it for one week, right here, alongside me. We’ll form some kind of online mutual positive-support society so that when your spouse or your boss starts being a pain in the ass, you can blow it off and focus on that great cup of coffee coming your way, or the great night out you just had with your friends.
It’s a lot to ask, I know. But I think it’s going to make a huge difference in our lives. And if one week seems absolutely impossible, try one day instead.
Capice? (This is where I sent someone from The Sopranos out to bend your fingers back into an impossibly painful position.)
You can do it! You can do it! You can do it! (It’s a good thing I was a cheerleader in 3rd grade, don’t you think? Who says elementary school isn’t important?!)
OK! Off I go to find some good thinking kind of thoughts around here…
