Ladybugs!

Here’s a thought, let’s try to have a positive attitude today. All I’m asking is that you pay attention to your thoughts and listen to your inner dialogue.  When someone says something, or something happens, does your mind go directly to a negative place? Do you generally find something wrong with everything that crosses your path? Do you say to yourself, “I could never do that,” “It’s too much trouble” or “That wasn’t very good?”

We’ve all heard that a positive attitude helps us live longer and happier. Apparently it even helps us sleep better. It’s because if you’re positive you’re less stressed, your hormones (stress affects your hormones) are better regulated and so you’re able to sleep. Which in turn circles back to your stress level and of course, your overall health and quality of life. Another theory is; you get what you think about, if you think negative thoughts, you’ll draw negative things to you. Think good things and good things will come. I believe this without a shadow of a doubt.

Today is Sunday, we’re supposed to be having our “Indian Summer” weather here in San Francisco but we’ve only had a few days of “summer” this year. It’s easy to be mad and negative about this silly situation. This afternoon I spoke with two of my friends; one was pissed about the weather and griped my ear off about how it’s so expensive to live here and it’s not fair that the weather sucks (like SF has a say in the weather). My other friend told me about a “rainy hike” she took with her family; they playfully ran through wet leaves, jumped over fallen trees and spied a massive nest of ladybugs. Zillions and zillions of happy little ladybugs. I dare you to find something negative in such a magical site.

I am not asking you to start acting crazy and only say and think nice things. I just want you to listen to yourself. Just listen and make a note of what you hear.

Deal?

  1. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome weblog!

    • HI,

      I’m really glad you like my writing. I try to keep things simple. I have not had guest writers in the past but am open to the idea. If you would like to submit a guest post please email me at kelley@motionstarved.com and we can talk about it.
