I was talking to my friend, Ali Cross, yesterday and she told me about something she was going to start on her blog--Motivational Monday--where she'll find something positive to post about. She'd gotten the idea from Abby Annis' blog where she also encouraged others to join in. This got me to thinking. What if Abby got this idea from someone else? What if thinking positive and sharing it with others is contagious? If I blog about something positive, then I'd have to THINK of something positive. Before you know it, I'd actually be DOING something positive and . . . Heaven forbid, I may SAY something positive to someone I know or . . . A STRANGER! I'm not sure I want to be responsible for spreading something that could cause such a change in someone else's attitude or completely change the way they look at themselves. Can you imagine the pandemic that one positive thought or word could cause? It could be catastrophic!
Can I really take on a responsibility like that? What if this thing spreads? What if others decided to do it? What would become of them and their readers? One positive thought could spread like wildfire and before we knew it, there could be posters and T-shirts and bumper stickers. I mean, just look at how the little yellow smiley face has spread. He's on everything. He's even managed to worm his way onto our computers. And then there's the song, "Don't Worry Be Happy." My husband has it as a ring tone on his cell phone. Oh the insanity of it all. When will it ever stop?
So, yes . . . I've caught the bug. From now on, this will be the place to find Motivational Monday. So consider yourself WARNED. Visiting my blog on Mondays may leave you in a better mood, happy and feeling the urge to spread it around.
Your positive thought for today? I LOVE YOU! See how many times you can say that today, not just to others, but to YOURSELF. I bet you'll be surprised at how many smiles you see after uttering those three simple words. Oh, and your assignment is to report back in the comment section. I really want to know.
