Although I have yet to think & speak positively all day, I am becoming much more conscious of my thoughts and words, and how they affect others.
I "failed miserably"* today at work. We have monthly meetings where some people talk for a very long time on subjects I'm not interested in and at times, I can lose my "positive vibes". Today was such a day...I normally don't notice my thoughts and actions, but this morning was different. I realized that my body language was matching my thoughts - Not Good!! To pull myself out of it, which was REALLY hard, (sometimes it just is too easy to be negative), I started thinking of all the reasons I was thankful for my job and people in the room. Pretty soon, I found myself laughing and enjoying the rest of the meeting.

*I firmly believe the only way one can fail in their resolutions is by not trying. Changing behavior is difficult, and we can only take one moment at a time...
