For the fifth day of the blogging challenge that I’m currently taking part in (catch the other posts here), we were asked to write about a positive experience that we’ve had recently. I’ve had to think long and hard about this – not because I’ve been lacking positive experiences lately (I travelled a lot over the summer, I’ve been on trips with friends and more), but because I usually write about them fairly quickly on here. Instead, I’ve decided to take a slightly different approach to this prompt and tell you all about my book of positivity..
I said this to my friend the other day: I’m such an optimistic person when it comes to other people. To myself, I’m a huge pessimist. I see the worst in so much. I joke that it’s a British thing, but it’s just my personality and that’s not something that is going to change overnight. However, I’m trying to make small changes. And I’m doing that through noting down the good in each day before I go to bed.
This is something I’ve tried in the past and I always feel better after doing it. I’m determined to see the positives rather than the negatives, and have been keeping this book for about a month now. There are some days where the only good thing I can find is a nice old cup of tea! Other days, my list might be more extensive – a good meeting with a professor, seeing friends, getting a good test score and more. My favorite entry so far has to be yesterday’s. It started with my new baby cousin arriving, so my day was already better than usual!
