Sometimes its hard

Hard to stay positive in the face of adversity. Somehow this guy Tom Bailey found me and posted on my blog, so in the interest of good blogosphere relations, I checked out his blog, which he bills a “a personal blog for people who know me” and says it “is not a business blog.”

Well, I don’t know him. But I like his blog anyway. Hope he doesn’t mind if I pop over and visit every now and again.

Many of his posts are about staying positive. This is a message I need to hear often. I truly believe that we create our own reality, that we choose how we react, that negative thinking is a bad habit and only serves to make you feel bad… Unfortunately I don’t always practice what I know.

One of the reasons I named my blog akajesais because of my nickname, JeSais, which began as a joke. Later, taking the name JeSais was my way to remind myself that I know more than I think I know.

I don’t do New Years Resolutions. I think they are meaningless unless you have a plan for implementation in place, complete with milestones, and measurable goals. What I do try to do is assess at year’s end my accomplishments. This is a good way to stay positive, to focus on what I did right.

I know this post a bit of a ramble. I hope like me, you’ll all take a moment to take stock, look at what you’ve done right this year. Make a list. Check it twice. Did you go the extra mile for someone? Did you finish a project? Did you make someone smile? Did you do something nice for yourself? Remember one good moment– a sunset, a raindrop, a conversation with a friend… Even if it was something small put it on your list. Because, afterall, big stuff starts with small stuff. Or a better way to say that is “a journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step.”

Happy Holly Days everyone.
