We committed to one week of #positivevibes as a gift to ourselves, as a chance to celebrate the wonderful things this world has to offer. We pushed ourselves to eliminate complaints, judgments, and negativity. Though it wasn’t always easy, it was worth it. The effects and lessons learned along the way were worth the commitment.
what i learned when i committed to sharing #positivevibes for a week:
There is something to smile about in every day
The world goes on no matter how you feel
Strangers are surprised by smiles
Holding doors open for others warms your heart
In giving, you receive – WAY more than you put out
Human emotions are contagious!
Which means …complaining casts a cloud on those around you (who knew!)
And…your happiness and love will manifest in others
Your body loves positive energy
Your stress decreases (less stress = less cortisol = less weight gain!)
The universe recognizes your efforts; and WILL reward you
The day goes by quicker
Your relationships are better for it
The mind can control your enjoyment
…so those tasks you dislike doing aren’t so bad
You can control your mind and thoughts
You make new, unexpected friends
You feel more beautiful
The song “I’m Walking on Sunshine” was onto something
It gives you the chance to BE who you truly are
Spending a day, a week, or a lifetime committed to positivity can be a challenge in today’s world. We are so bombarded with negativity, socialized by bad news, insecurity, and tragedy. By making an effort to undo what you have been taught, you will help your body, mind, soul, and neighbours. By committing to positivity, you will put positive vibes into the world. What you give, you receive and you deserve nothing less than awesome.
