Today is January 1, 2013.
Last night my brother and I chose once again to revisit the 10 Day Positivity Challenge. Basically, we are only allowed to speak, write and act positively. . If I we say anything negative, we have to start ALL over, no matter how close to the tenth day we are. The idea is to adjust our mindset and get a fresh look at how we let the words we say reflect on how we view life and behave in our day to day situations.
I can honestly say that today went rather well. I got to sleep in because it was the holiday but I went in to work at 10 am. The girls were so well behaved that it made my day even easier. I posted on the challenge on Twitter so that I could stay motivated and also to hopefully engage others into the challenge.
Last week I did get some news that I would have rather not have gotten. My employer let me know 3 days after Christmas that basically on the second week of January, I will no longer have a full time job and at the end of the month I will not have a job at all. I panicked a bit at first, but then I reminded myself that this was the push that I needed to make sure that I find a job that could help springboard my life into the right direction. Some things really can be blessings in disguise. I am banking on this being one of them.
I have also been looking at my life in the future. One of my personal goals, not just for 2013 but through my 30th year, I want to knock out my 30×30 bucket list. You can check it out here. I have come to the conclusion that life is too short to not live it. I have moved past mere existence and I choose life. I am looking forward to what that life may be.
