“Optimism is the most important human trait, because it allows us to evolve our ideas, to improve our situation, and to hope for a better tomorrow.” ~ Seth Godin
Hello, my loves... I pray that 2013 has been a blessing to you thus far... It's just the beginning, baby!!!
Soooooooo, I've got a question for u... What's the first thing that you think about when you wake up in the morning???? Be honest, now... I'm gonna wait on it... Alot of you WANT to say that the first thing you think is, "Thank You Lord for another day", but you and I know GOOD and well that's the not the case... C'mon, now... Typical early morning thoughts include: "Damn, I don't wanna go to work today!" "Uuuuuuugh, I don't wanna get out of this bed..." "Oh shit, is my light bill due today?!?!?!" "How much gas is my car???" "Uuuuuuugh, I hate my life..." Do any of those sound familiar??? I'm just sayin', you ain't gotta lie to kick it... ;)
Positive thinking is a mental attitude that allows you to sees the bright side of situations... A positive mind ANTICIPATES the possibility of happiness, joy, health, wealth, & other favorable results... If you're willing to adopt this mental attitude, you teach your mind to expect success, growth and expansion in all areas of your life...
Some folks embrace positive thinking as a fact, and believe in its effectiveness. Other folks consider it as nonsense, and look down on folks who believe or accept it. How do you know if you never even give it a try??? Just like there is TREMENDOUS power in prayer, positive affirmations can take you a whole lot further than you may think...
Here are a few of my favorite affirmations... They may become favs of your, too...

My prayer for you is that maybe, JUST maybe, you'll decide to adopt this power of positive affirmations into your daily living... When you're at work & feel like you're about to click, just say, "I am doing work that I enjoy and find fulfilling..." And if that affirmation is a COMPLETE lie on your job, try "I take comfort in the fact that I can always leave this place..." LoL... Ask God to help you move on and then make the effort to look for something else... Simple as that...
Sweetheart, you can't POSSIBLY expect any type of upgrade in this life if you don't upgrade what's going on in that head of yours...
'Til next time... XoXo, Upgrade Gal
