2011 - 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.
