Positive Day in the Bloggosphere

Posted: Wednesday, July 22, 2009 by Travis Cody in

I try to be a positive person. I'm mostly successful. Sometimes I get down, or angry, or just funked out. Little things can annoy me. Medium things can frustrate me.

And great big things can just ruin a day.

But in general, I look at life and try to see possibilities.

My pal Jennifer at Dust Bunny Hostage has a terrific daughter. You can see just how terrific by reading this post and this one. The young lady is 12, and already has a well defined sense of who she is and where she's headed. In fact, she has stated that when she becomes President, she will formally declare a Positive Day.

Isn't that terrific?

Seeing as how Diva Daughter is some years away from her run at the Presidency, here's what we're going to do. Grab this badge...

...and fly it on 31 July. Post some of your positive thoughts and ideas. And be sure to link back to Dust Bunny Hostage.

Most importantly, actively pursue completely positive actions throughout the day. Think things through, find the positive aspects, and act on them.

It'll be fun. And it'll be a grand way to show a bright young lady that words and deeds truly matter and can make a difference.

    I AM a positive person. I always see the glass half-full, despite all evidence to the contrary! A little birdy told me you were the inspiration for Positive Day!

    It is so tempting to leave a lengthy (positive) comment on this post but somehow, gratitude is what I most want to convey.

    So simply yet very heartfelt...

    Thank you Travis.

  1. Yes, it was a great post. I try to be positive but the negatives too often creep in. I have to fight them.

    Sounds like a good deal to me. And, since it also falls on a Friday -provided I remember to do this, of course, cause the Altzheimer Attacks do overtake me from time to time -I can coordinate it to run in conjunction with the "Only The Good Friday" theme I try to participate in too.

  1. What a great idea! I'm in!

  1. An attitude of gratitude.
