The Challenge: 52 Weeks Of Positivity

New Year's resolutions are not my thing at all! I break them within the first hour of the New Year....hahahahaha.

This year I chose to alter my lifestyle...my outlook...my point of view. How? With a heart & mind of optimism and positivity. 

I looked back at a few poems I wrote almost ten years ago and I thought "What the heck was wrong with me!" It motivated me to look within and decide to make a change. One might say why does a twenty-nuff year old woman feel the need to change after reading something she wrote as a teenager...simple... Aspects of that confused teenager resurfaces especially in situations I cannot control  and for me that ain't ok.

I told someone I was attempting this feat and they told me it was impossible! That was the challenge I needed.... never tell a Lioness "she can't!"

Week One has passed and I give myself a 8/10! My job can be stressful but instead of crumbling under the pressure...I stood firm took a DEEP BREATH and continued working. I feel better...accomplished and ready for the other 51 weeks of 2013!

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”
