I’ve even made a Wordle.
Why is this year’s word Positive?
Well, I think I have my path for Authenticity well established and I know this will be a lifelong pursuit, but I am ready to take the next step.
I highly doubt I’ll ever lose my snark or sarcasm, yet I think I need to round some edges. While pursuing my education, I’ve found quite a few friends (okay read most) have fallen away. Sure time constraints, life changes (on all sides) and so forth will naturally happen and I can live with that, but I have been feeling rather isolated lately besides work and school; school and work; little league, school and work…
Someone I thought was a “good through thick and thin” friend has gone poof. I have a couple of friends that cycle and I see that we are on the quiet side of the cycle; I can live with that…
But I need to stop complaining.
– I complain about work
– I complain at work
– I complain about my weight
– I complain about my health
– I complain about my housekeeping
So my first attempts as I work on Positive?
If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything.
Now I am a manager / director, so it’s not like I won’t be correcting, admonishing, pushing, etc. but I can do it positively, consciously, insightfully and with intention.
