If you follow me at all, you’ve probably noticed an increasing frequency in the number of posts spawned by something I read at Daily Good. Seriously, I’m loving this having good news delivered to my inbox every day. We could all use our faith in humanity restored.
It’s spawned a great deal of introspection and general philosophizing about positivity, particularly since that post I wrote about retraining your brain. And, well, it’s led me to fall off the wagon in a big way.
That would be the no creating new blogs wagon. Because I have a documented addiction.
Let’s review. I have three blogs I actively post on (this one, Pots and Plots, and the ROW80 blog). I have 3 LJs (2 defunct and one with future plans). I had, previously, 2 other homes for my cooking blog before I settled on my current one. This does not count the 2 blog domains I currently have reserved “just in case”, nor the half dozen for other purposes that I made myself delete due to lack of use, or the various and sundry Blogger blogs I had back in the day. I have a problem, I’ve acknowledged it, and I’m dealing. Thanks.
But this positivity thing has really captured my imagination. I really LOVE the idea of retraining my brain to focus on the positive. As somebody who has struggled in the grip of negativity and anger since I was in high school, I find this really empowering and appealing. So I did it. I fell off the wagon and I started another blog.
The Positivity Project is not meant to be the be all end all of anything. I’m not claiming to be an expert. I’m not claiming to know the right way to do something. At the root, my motivation for creating this blog is to make myself sit down daily and document the positive in my life. The stuff that makes me grateful, happy, or otherwise just optimistic about life and the world.
I’m trying to retrain my brain. And maybe inspire some other folks to do the same.
So if you’re interested, pop by. If not, no worries. I’m not offended. Just thought I’d share my latest brain child with you.
