Positive Ponderings: Your Last Time?

When was the last time you skipped down the street?
…or enjoyed a good swing?

Wouldn’t you like to do it today?

What are you waiting for?

Is it only books
that you judge
by their covers?

Positive Ponderings: Excess

What is one excess that you currently have but could live without?

If you gave it up, would you really miss it?

Is it worth trying to live without it now?

Positive Ponderings: Six Word Positive Memoir

Have you heard of the ‘six word memoir‘?

The idea is to describe your life using only six words.

I would like to put a twist on that.  A Pollyanna twist.

Using six words, write about something positive in your life.

Here’s mine:

Love, laughter, family, friends; lucky girl.

What’s yours?

30-Day Challenge: Day 5

How is your 30-Day Challenge going? Did you make it through the weekend? Don’t be discouraged if you didn’t.  Stick with it and ignore the slip-up. You can add a day to the end if you like. 

So far, I’ve managed to keep bread at bay and it has not been as difficult as I had feared. I’ve had soup with salad a couple of times and eggs with no toast. The tricky thing for me is just keeping it at the front of my mind and not unconsciously making a sandwich out of habit. 

Well, 4 days down, 26 to go!  

How is your challenge going? (Don’t forget to share your 6-word positive memoir)

30-Day Challenge – Day 22

How’s your challenging coming along? Are you still going strong?

You’re nearing the finish line. Don’t give up now.  

You’re 3/4 of the way there. 

Only 8 more days!!!

You can do it! I know you can. 

Positive Ponderings: Desert Island

Have you ever heard people talk about their “desert island songs”?

Their favourite must-have can’t-live-without top ten songs that they would have to have on their iPod should they (apparently knowingly) ever get stranded on a desert island. (That is before they desperately try to escape. Read Oct. 2nd’s post “How To Determine Your Friends’ Worth“.)

What about your “desert island food”?  What would that be?

With which two, three, four or five friends would you choose to be stranded?

How about this: if your ‘desert island’ could be anywhere in the world (not necessarily an actual surrounded-by-water island, but a village, town, neighbourhood, coffee shop, whatever),
where would you like to be stranded – alone?

For how long?


30-Day Challenge – Day 15!
We are half way through our 30-day challenge!
So far, I am happy to say that I have not missed a day of yoga.  It almost feels like it is becoming a routine. This morning I woke up and thought ‘Once I’ve done my yoga I’ll do…’ instead of ‘Oh ya, I have to do yoga first.’  That’s progress!

15 days to go.
Two weeks and one day.
Five sets of three days.
Three sets of five days. 

How are you doing? Have you been able to stick with it?
You can do it! I know you can!

Positive Ponderings: Negatives to Positives

What is one thing that someone accused you of being that you know is not true?

You are lazy.

You are shallow. 

               You are boring. 

Turn it into a positive
that you know to be true.

I choose to spend my time doing things that I enjoy.

I have deep beliefs about what matters to me.
Perhaps they differ from your beliefs. 

 I am interested in different things than you.

What messages should you re-think?
