2011 - The Year of POSITIVITY!

Here's the thing.  I have decided  2011 is going to be The Year of POSITIVITY!

Not only is this going to apply to me and the way I go about my life and work but also to the people around me.  I intend to surround myself with positive people and positive energy! 

Over the years, I have found  the one thing that has totally sapped me is negativity and people who are constantly complaining and whingeing about the cards they have been dealt.   They are not happy unless everyone else is wallowing in their misery.  They are the people who give you every possible reason why something can't be done  rather than encouragement to give it a go!   They are the people who when the going gets tough - they get running.......

I absolutely love Randy Pausch's book "The Last Lecture" and have gained so much inspiration from his words.  It truly has become my mantra on how to live my best life.   This quote in particular really struck a chord with me :

"As I see it, there's a decision we all have to make, and it seems perfectly captured in the Winnie-the-Pooh characters created by A.A. Milne.  Each of us must decide :  Am I a fun-loving Tigger or am I a sad-sack Eeyore?  Pick a camp.....   I won't let go of the Tigger inside me.  I just can't see the upside of becoming Eeyore."

So, to all my fellow Tiggers out there - I look forward to a year filled to the brim with inspiration, creativity and positivity.   If there is one thing I have found since beginning my blogging journey - should ever I start to feel the weight of negativity weighing heavily on my shoulders,  I only have to click onto one of my favourite blogs and voila - I'm a Tigger once again!

Have a wonderful 2011 everyone.

  1. Oh I'm Definitely going to be a Tigger this year. I have been so for most of my life apart from when those Eeyores have pulled me down.
    Tiggers now Rule Ok!
    Positive smiles, Angela.

  2. I think I have always been a bit of a half full...type. but occasionally there is nothing quite so invigorating as a good whinge to someone who will listen, understand and then have coffee with you!!!!!!
    Hoping the sun shines on you soon xo ~ J

  3. This is such a wonderful post and a great reminder that we alone get to decide how we want to approach life, with a glass half full, or one that's dry as a bone! I love the Tigger/Eeyore perfect! I prefer the Tiggers of the world too!

    Happy New Year!

    Kat :)

  4. Happy new year! Sending best wishes your way!xx

  5. I’m what I call a disillusioned optimist.

    I'm a realist in that things do go wrong but I always start out thinking the best, and I'm never afraid to move forward and start again if they do.

    With my whole heart!

    I think you're on to something with Tigger's Positivity. Surrounding yourself with positive people is key.

    Blessings and remember, always look up!

  6. I love it....I really, really love it!! Looking forward to a fabulous 2011, full of positivity with you dear Sharyne :)~ Tina xx

  7. Hi lovely Sharyne,

    You are definitely a tigger. Anyone who seems to sail through your Christmas and come out happy is a Tigger in my book!!

    I wonder if we can help being a Tigger or an Eeyore? Is it a choice or are some people more prone to being gloomy....on the inside, I mean.

    Well, I was definitely an Eeyore when our heating was broken but normally I think I am quite Tiggerish!
