Today’s assignment: Take the coin that is your mindset and flip it.
Choose positivity. Opt for happiness. Promote optimism.
My go-to response in times of stress or indecision is to choose tails – to opt for negativity, frustration, resentment, anger, fear, jealousy or comparison. And lately, I’ve been more tails than heads. But as part of my challenge to shake the world with beauty I’m asking more of myself. Will you join me?
Let’s call heads.
Opt for happiness.
Just one time today – let’s STOP – and instead of choosing tails:
Choose to say “I love you” when you really want to scream.
Choose to be thankful for your beautiful body instead of scathing of its perceived flaws.
Choose to congratulate yourself when you play with the kids instead of clean the toilet.
Choose to be content when you clean the toilet instead of playing with the kids. (Because sometimes – it’s just gotta get done.)
Choose to see the positive side of an ambivalent comment.
Choose to accept that the rude woman at the supermarket may be going through a rough patch.
Choose to smile at strangers.
Choose to dance it out when your frustration rises.
Choose to breathe deeply and say, “I am awesome” when you feel invisible.
Choose to see the good in people rather than the bad.
Choose to believe that positivity attracts more positivity and your world will feel infinitely brighter each time you do.
Tell me, do you believe in the power of mind over matter? Will you flip it today – just once?
