Tell Me Something Good #74

I honestly don’t really know how to start this post. I feel so torn. Torn between being nervous and excited, happy and disappointed. Most of all though proud. Proud because there are all the positive feelings that actually weigh in more than the others. And that’s good, right? But before I get into more details here let me just say this: It’s time to kick off this week on a positive note!

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
  • Share this post and invite your followers as well.

So would you like to know what I have to share with you all today? Would you like me to continue where I left it and let you know what I was talking about? Yes? Are you sure? Are you excited? Yes? And you can hardly wait to hear it? Okay, okay… So here is what I’d like to share with you all today…

But wait! How about a little high five action? What do you mean there is nobody around to high five? Hey, that’s really not an issue 😉

I just totally high five-d myself too 😉

So back to where we were. Here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“While we sit in our safe, dry and comfortable homes some areas of this world get a good little example what the force of nature is capable of doing. It scares and amazes me at the same time. So while I sit in my safe home, feeling annoyed about the fact that some bits of my future business don’t work out the way they looked like and also get all worked up about my son not putting his cloths away, others lose their home, all of their belongings, maybe even their loved ones or their life. The good thing is that my family and everyone I love are safe. We don’t have any issues. We don’t have to get prepared, run for water and other things we consider normal. And it puts it all into perspective. A perspective we are often forgetting to focus on, while worrying about things that honestly are not that important…”

Some Monday’s are easier than others, right? Today is one of the Mondays that are not the easiest for me. Simply because I have one of those meetings that I don’t really like to go to tonight and I know that most likely it won’t be done by 10pm but will most likely go longer than that. Not my most favorite way to spend an evening. Other than that my Monday has actually been really great but more about it later… So let’s just simply focus on a positive start into this week!

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below).

“I’ve started the day with my most favorite workout. Something I have not done for a long time and wow, did it feel great. I feel energized and happy and positive. Funny what a workout session with the right person can do to you, right? But it’s not just that. I just feel super happy today. I feel like a big warm blanket is covering me. Yesterday we celebrated Father’s Day here in Australia and on my way back from walking the dogs in the afternoon there was a heart shaped leave lying in the middle of the sidewalk. I know it was a message from my dad. And yes, it made me sad for a little moment. Sad, because I miss him. But it also put a smile on my face. He is still here, somehow. Leaving his messages for me. Showing, that he loves me. So you know what? That meeting tonight? I really don’t care if some annoying people will try to get to me. Because it’s not important ;-)…”

Do you know how, when your mood is not really good, you sort of feel as if everything is slightly grey and heavy? You do? Well how about we try to change that and make a little effort to feel a bit better by simply imagining we sparkle and shine? And in doing so making the start into this day, into this week a much better one?

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.

Before I share my positive thing with you today how about we all just relax a little bit? Just lean back, breathe deeply and let go of all the tension we might carry with us? Another deep breath and maybe stretch a little bit. And then another little stretch, another deep breath and we are ready to go, right?

And when you are ready then here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“I know I didn’t deliver on the weekend. There was no My Picks Of The Week post. Not that I didn’t read any posts that were worth sharing. In the contrary. But time just totally got away from me. I promise I will have an extra long list next weekend. The last couple of days have been super busy, leading up to a tournament I was in charge organizing. A tournament with 600 soccer playing girls involved. It was a big day, with lots of soccer, many many many big smiles on happy kids faces and the weather… well… the weather could have been worse. Not only do I look back to it with a smile on my face because of so many girls having had a blast, but also because I have learned a lesson once again.

Maybe not the best lesson but an important one: You can have many, many people being happy and content with something and one person complaining and it’s the person who complains who gets to you. I learned that it’s my decision though if I let this person get to me. It’s my decision if I allow this person space in my head and heart. If I let this person bully away all the happy people. I’m in charge. I allow this person to be in my head but I can also kick this person out of this space. It’s up to me. Today, while still being exhausted but with a little bit of distance I realize that I’m in control. I can control if I have a happy memory or a bad one. And I for sure will now allow all the happy people to “move back” in my head and heart and fill my up with that feel good feeling of having successfully delivered a great event to hundreds of kids.”

Before I share my positive thing with you today how about we all just add some glitter to the day? Glitter or maybe even some pixie dust 😉 Just that shiny little bit of magic… Doesn’t that make you feel a little bit better instantly?

Right? And now keep it up. Just a little bit longer. And enjoy how everything seems so shiny, glittery, sparkling and beautiful…

And when you are ready, here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“It’s a bit of an uphill race at the moment as I’m involved in organizing an event and sometimes it’s hard to do so while juggling all the different egos involved. Just when I had one of those f*** it all moments today a friend called and she could tell right away that something was not right. I gave her a very short little description of the situation and she simply said: ‘Well that’s what makes you a better person, don’t you think? Just by volunteering to do something like this and deal with people like that it makes you grow into someone so much better…’

And just like that she made me feel so so much better. Not because I think I’m better. But because she is right. All those little challenges are there for us to grow. To become stronger, smarter and – for the lack of a better word – better…”

Before I share my positive thing with you today how about we all feel happy, or even really content with yourself. Feel like you did it! And celebrate it!

Now before I share my something good for today, how about a little dance in the rain (or in the sun, or snow or fog, or whatever you have at the moment)?

Don’t you think it’s fun? To just stop rather then running through it and trying to find a dry spot? To stop and dance and do something totally unexpected? I think it is 😉 So give it a go, do it, have fun and dance 🙂

And when you are done, then here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“You might have guessed it: It’s a rainy day. In fact it’s one of those Melbourne days, 4 seasons in one day. We go from sunny to dark grey, from dry to pouring rain, from really cold to actually quite nice. Some might say that it’s super annoying. I kind of find it fun. In a way nature gives nature everything it needs in one go ;-)”

Following up one of my posts from a couple of days ago. If someone judges you harshly it’s probably because they fear you will be at a place they want to be before them. It’s because they are not happy with their life. So for this week I want you to keep something in mind: Negativity will never bring you further. And the same with judging. If you want things to change then actively take actions and don’t try to make someone else appear less than they are.

It’s a unusual way to start this post, I know. I had a very intense encounter with a soccer parent yesterday which is still getting to me. More soon. For now let’s focus on the positive, let’s kick off this week on a good note and gain momentum for the rest of the week.

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below).

Yes! Do it! I’m sure there is a reason for it! Be proud. Be happy, be excited, celebrate it. And when you are done here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“Sometimes it’s enough to realize that you are not like someone else to make you feel good. And this time I honestly mean that you are would never let yourself go in such a way. It’s good to see that the group of people you are part of doesn’t support certain behavior either and has the same values you have. As shocking as it can be to see people flip out and completely lose it, it’s good to see that the people you are surrounded with are as shocked as you are but also don’t tolerate it. It’s good to see that the values we teach our children, the team my daughter is part of are the right ones and that the girls act according to those values.”

Yes, how about a little day domination? Be in charge. Take charge of your day. After all it is your day just as much as anybody else’s. So make it yours.

Before I share my positive thing with you today how about we all feel like we are top of the world for a moment? You know, that amazing feeling you have when you have accomplished something. You throw your arms up in the air to celebrate. You feel happy. Hey, why not now, why not today? I’m sure there is an achievement for you to celebrate? So do it! Throw those arms up, just like Rocky did…

And when you are done (are you sure???) then here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“Watched my son entertaining two very young boys for an hour in the park. The mom seemed exhausted and the boys started talking to my teenage son about the dogs he then started playing with them, chasing them around, letting them chase him and so on. At one point the mom called the boys over so they would leave him alone. He looked at her and said that it’s okay, that he’s sure she’d appreciate a bit of a break and that he’s happy to keep playing with them. You should have seen her face light up… and mine too…”

Before I share my positive thing with you today how about cha-cha-cha? Forward and backwards, and forward and back. Over and over. Having fun, enjoying the rhythm. Are you having fun? Do you still think it’s such a bad thing this forward and backward thing? It’s all about what you make of it, isn’t it. So dance 😉

And when you are done, here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“I find it an amazing thing to see passion in someone. The way they speak about the things they are passionate about, the way they approach them. How it becomes part of them. My son has this massive passion for animals, specifically reptiles. While sometimes it almost gets a bit much for me to listen to all he knows about them, I watched him explain things to a friend of ours today and answer all her questions. When he walked off she told me how impressed she was not only about what he knew but also the way he explained it and the passion in his eyes and words. I tell you, it was one very proud mommy moment :-)”

Yes! I love this! Let’s sparkle! Sparkle is positive (unless you have to clean up glitter all over your house, then it’s sort of annoying…). Let’s just think of sparkle that is not glitter…

And once you had enough, here is my good thing:

“For a change it’s something I’m really looking forward to. We will head away for a short little get away soon. To do some hikes and just have a change of scenery. A little road trip and new memories to be made. To a place we wanted to go ever since we moved here but never managed to go to. It will be cold but beautiful…”
