After all my complaining these sucky past few months (sucky being the technical term), I’ve decided to mend my ways and start focusing on the positive. And I’m going to start by doing it for one week–that’s right, one week only! Talk about one hell of a special!
Wanna join me?
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 alien–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 Berkely-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.)
Hey, you, way in the back! Ready to sign up?
OK, here we go. One week, starting today: July 3-July 10.
Besides, we’re taking it easy by starting with a holiday weekend, which means an extra day of relaxing and having fun. Let’s just take that energy and keep it going.
Remember, I’ll be right here, doing the exact same experiment in positive thinking.
I can’t wait to hear how it goes!
