No wonder the cashiers at the grocery store yesterday told me everyone coming through their lines complained of exhaustion. And stories of freaking out pets at night were common. (Possibly they were taking in the aurora borealis while I slept).
Day 6: Focus on your three most positive attributes. And the ways you use these attributes now and can in the future. I gotta say, this was tough for me.
First I tried using humor. Only 3? Are you kidding me? How can I limit it to 3?
Then I realized in an average day, I probably spend about 90% of my waking hours focused on my worst attributes. No wonder I have self-esteem issues! So I decided to focus on how a friend described me for an entire day. And by the end of the day, I was on Planet EuphoriaFuture’sSoBrightIOughtaWearShades.
Either my friend is as perceptive as a rock or some of the descriptors are true. But either way, focusing on positive attributes does improve one’s inner sphere of influence. : )
Day 7: Practice an act of kindness and share the happiness.
Done. Aside from completing a hand-knit sweater for my kid, I am surprising her with something unexpected. Reminders and nagging to clean room and pet cage and finish homework replaced by only kind comments for 24 hours. Perhaps she will think an alien abducted her mom. : )
