...be positive!!


 
 
may 21st is ...
 
 
 
INTERNATIONAL BE POSITIVE DAY! 
 
two of my neat blogger friends… miss sharon and miss robyn… created it. pretty neat!
 
for me being positive is choosing to shine! its thinking positive and putting some sunshiny stuff  into every day.  its like having a catchy bug (a good one) and when you get in contact with others they catch it from you and pass it on.  then… WHAMO  everyone in the world catches the bug  and spreads lots of positive sunshiny stuff. WOW! how positively cool is that!!

being positive shouldnt be only for one day. NOPE! it should be for every day. did you know choosing to shine is good for you?

1. it helps you cope better with stress 

2. its good for your mental and physical health
3. it lowers depression and levels of distress
4. it helps you to be a better problem solver
5. AND..believe it or not..it reduces the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease! WOW! how cool is that!!
 
wanna know where you could find lots of  “be positive” stuff AND eat chocolate at the same time??? get a bag of dove chocolate candy.  while your chomping on some yummy pieces of chocolate look at the inside of the wrappers theres really neat “be positive” sayings on them. heres a few cool ones…

remember, one little smile can fill the room with sunshine. :)
sweeten your dreams. have some chocolate before bed
share a smile with someone you love
take time to laugh. its the music of the soul

INTERNATIONAL BE POSITIVE DAY is just a real good way to remember its important to think and be positive. catch the bug  and CHOOSE TO SHINE every day!  BE POSITIVE!

  5. Great post, Lenny!
    I will admit, it is hard to be positive EVERY day. But feeling negative does make me feel bad, physically bad, and I know it's better for your health to think positive.

    And you are right, it should be more than just once a year!

  8. You are the MOST positive guy on the planet! This is THE best positive post ever. If I'm down all I have to do is read an email from you. I go back up, up, up! Giant hugs to you. Hey. I have something positive about the Preakness yesterday. It's over! Now on to Belmont for Orb. Hahaha.

    I bet if the prize were a bag of chocolate peanut butter cups there really wouldn't be any left. Hahahahahaha. :-)
