AMAZING Powerful Minds

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

For the last several weeks, I have been posting "Amazing Day" posts on some the team message boards that I am a member of. I have found some great friends that way and have enjoyed seeing others respond in kind with promises to make the decision to have an amazing day too.

You see, I believe that, although any manner of things can happen to you in a day, how you react to them is all in your head. Yep - that means if someone p!$$es you off, you just let them steal a moment of happiness. Better to let it go and smile, that is one more smile for you!

Of course, in practice, it sounds great, but in reality it is a pretty tough skill to master. I don't do the best job on many days but I try. With that said, I have been cluttering up the message boards every day with new "AMAZING DAY" posts and there are about a dozen people who join me and promise to have an amazing day as well.

I am thinking about creating a team of my own, but the challenges there are new blood - I love meeting the newbies that join in on the post and they won't see it if it is in a team of its own. thoughts friends? I don't want to "use up" my blogging for the "Amazing Day" challenge. Blogs to me are a bit more "personal" than that.

Hmmm - conundrum...

In the meantime...

A BIG CHEEESY smile, just for me

A BIG CHEEESY smile, just for YOU!

Happiness loves company!

    Great mostly is how you react to the things in your day. I will have an AWESOME day today...thank you!

    As for how to keep it going? Maybe post something on the message boards and let people know to look via your blog and then it will show up on people's pages!

    Good luck, it's a great idea

    Oh and here's a cheesy smile for you too emoticon

    As a card-carrying member of your Amazing Day threads, I can attest that it works. Of course, we all have bad days and there are outside factors that we cannot control. Life is not always cheery. However, doing consistently for the past 2 weeks has proven to me that WE CAN CONTROL HOW WE REACT to everything that happens in our day. Yesterday I had the most awful day at work, but because of my involvement on the thread, I was able to get through and come out the other side without going off my program. However you decide to continue, I will be there. emoticon

    You are so funny. Big cheesy hugs :) emoticon As to the team, I think it's a great idea, but I can't even keep up with one team much less more than one (that being said, I belong to more than one...) I do think it would be an AMAZING place full of positive energy though!
