The best way to start the week is with as much positive thinking as possible. It’s a new day, a new week, a new chance to do what you want to do, to accomplish great things, and to be the person you want to be. Take hold of that, and make the most of this gift you are given each and every Monday!
Sometimes that can be a challenge. Life is not an easy thing, and despite all our efforts to keep the negative voices at the door, they can find a way in. The best thing we can do is to recognize those thoughts for what they are, and then find a way to turn them around.
I recently discovered that my father, who I lost two years ago to cancer, wrote blog posts on a share site for others dealing with the same illness. Every one of his posts ends with the same tag: Keep it positive and smile! :). He wrote this even on days when he did not feel well or his test results were not what he wanted. He went so far as to call himself Mr. Positive – and others on the site joined in! What an amazing example he set – finding happy, positive thoughts to share with others even in their darkest days.
If he can do it, so can we. Positive energy can be contagious – spread it around!
