Erika’s 30-Day Positivity Challenge

Yes, after taking a brief walk on the dark side, and noticing how much crappier it feels to focus even mildly on people’s shortcomings and faults, I am going to focus on cleaning up my own yard rather than wondering why my neighbors haven’t mowed their lawns or trimmed their hedges in months ;-)

This is not selfless. This is full-on selfishness. It feels way better for ME to appreciate other people. It feels way better for me to see the love behind the hate, and to notice all the little ways that people support me (little do they know it, often supporting me even with their criticism, which either helps me clarify my own perspectives or sends my blog traffic through the roof … lol :-)

So this is my 30-day challenge. To focus as much as I possibly can, for 30 days, entirely on people’s loving and positive attributes and on all the ways they make my life happier and more alive. If anyone would like to join me in setting this intention, I welcome your support and comraderie.

  1. I don’t know. The joint LR was a very good read, more of a love report than a lay report, though I was accused of being “cheesy” when I said that. ;-)

    When do we get to read the joint lay report?

  3. “I got a big weekend coming up so all rejections”

    All zero rejections, of course.

  4. Touche. This should be fun to see the results. I got a big weekend coming up so all rejections shall hereby reframed as “wow, she really did us both a favor if it wasn’t going to work out anyway.”

  5. Yes, I’ll reframe all misogyny as “awww… that guy loves women so much that he was extra disappointed when he didn’t get the responses he wanted … all the more reason to give him a helping hand.”

  6. This is great. I can be as misogynistic as I want and Erika will think I’m just being funny and edgy. Mua haha.

    Yes, sometimes you really do have to protect yourself. I don’t mean in a defensive way, but in a real way. It’s important.
