The Daily Positives Project – Making A Start! 08/08/2016

Here marks the beginning of ‘The Daily Positives Project’, my all new, all singing, all dancing and hopefully ‘all smiles’ new outlook upon life.

It’s not often that I say I have had a ‘good Monday’. Today however seems to be a rare occasion when I can happily report that so far it has been a ‘feel good day’.

The sun is shining, the kids are content playing outside in the garden despite the odd sibling screaming match which is becoming an accepted ‘norm’ and Paul and I have ticked some of the essential ‘to do’ boxes from our chores list.

I love feeling positive, it’s something which I have found quite hard going over the years. My life seems to be an endless up and down runaway rollercoaster and at this point I want to take control.

A friend recently suggested that I need to keep my chin up. I need to look at the lighter side of life and try to refrain from banging on the doom and gloom drums so often. If I am honest they have a point, I need to start thinking more positively.

I was recently inspired to begin a daily positives post after watching one of Natasha Bailies amazing Vlogs, this particular video starred Natasha’s ‘Badass life coach‘ Mary Meadows.

Mary suggests that in order to set ourselves up for a more positive outlook, we should focus upon the future and begin each day by listing three positives. These three things can be as simple as whether you enjoyed your Weetabix that morning to lifes ‘biggies’. So long as you identify three things which make you smile you are onto a winner!

I am going to give this ‘daily positives project’ my best shot. I intend to post my ‘three positives’ on a daily basis. What better day to begin a new project than a Monday? It’s the start of the week and the start of my ‘positive plan’, so let’s make a start!


Monday August 8th 2016 – The Daily Positives Project

  1. After a fortnight of searching for a missing jigsaw piece from E’s favourite ‘Galt Toys’ Magic Haunted House Jigsaw Puzzle, Paul finally found the missing piece lodged in the arm chair!
  2. We signed and sent the acceptance form for the further borrowing back to Barclays completing all paperwork required for our extension, come September it’ll be all hands on deck.
  3. We went for a wonderful woodland walk this afternoon with the children and the dog, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I was reminded just how beautiful our local surroundings are.The Daily Positives Project - Making A Start! 08/08/2016

    Such a great idea! I can be a moaning woman too, seeing the bad stuff and forgetting what is good! It looks like you had a lovely walk in the woods. Love this pic of the three of you, well with doggy LOL . #TuesdayTreasures

    Such a good idea to do. I take part in Katy and Sian’s Linky reflecting back on the positives. Thanks for hosting #TuesdayTreasures

    Brilliant idea! A few years ago I tried to write a few things down every day I was grateful for … sometimes forcing yourself to change your perspective really helps. You’ve inspired me to give it a go again! x #picknmix

    Such a lovely idea. So important to find the positives, even the little things! #picknmix

    A great idea, there is way too much misery in this world and sometimes we need to remember the little things that make us smile. Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix
