Welcome to my first post on this new ‘be positive’ series on my blog that I am calling “Today, I am – “. I will be posting on this series once a week and I hope that you will join me and enjoy it as well as benefit from it in any positive way possible.
I am inspired by being inspired. – This Scribbler Mum
As you can see from the title and image, the word that completes my “Today, I am – ” statement is “inspired.”
First, what is this about? The idea is to ‘feed’ myself with a positive word at the start of each day. It may be a positive feeling that I have at the time or a positive state of mind that I want to be in for that day.
When I woke up today (probably not the same day that this gets posted but anyway), I was greeted by a bright and sunny morning. This is a big deal for me because where I am, the weather has just been all gloomy and rainy as if something is trying to stop spring from showing up. I am a generally happy and optimistic person but when the weather is depressing for so long, it dampens my mood and energy a little bit. So with a beautiful ray of sunshine, I faced the day in high spirits, ready to take on the world (so to speak).
It is a great feeling to be in a positive mood. I am more productive. I think more clearly. I am happy. I am inspired. I like this frame of mind and I want it everyday.
But if I am going to rely on Mr. Sun showing up to have this good mood, I don’t see it happening everyday… unless I move to a tropical country.
And that’s when inspiration struck.
It is not a concept that I invented. It is something that people already do. And maybe I should start doing it too.
Tell myself one positive word a day. And then, try to stick to it throughout the day.
With all the stresses of daily life, add to that the rants you see on social media, negative news reports, the gloomy weather, and the list goes on and on… we get too many negative input than positive. They are like subliminal messages that take over our mindset, our mood, our day, our life. It’s time to counteract these too much negativity and bring the balance back. Starting with one positive word a day.
So, today, I am inspired. I’ll write it on a piece of paper and stick it on my fridge. Write it on my board. Set it as my phone’s wallpaper. Make it my mantra when I need to take a deep breath. Anything to help me keep my positive word in mind.
I am inspired to pull back the reins from driving into negative stimuli when it is under my control. (From not letting the house turn into a messy state to staying away from negative social media posts.)
I am inspired to give myself more good vibes. (From turning on the music to finding a new hobby.)
Today, I am inspired to start sharing some optimism through my writing… with one dose of positive word at a time.
What positive word are you today?
