I have decided to make a change beginning tomorrow. I can’t start until tomorrow because it’s a morning change that I will make. Every evening I set my alarm on my phone to wake me at 5:20 a.m. even though I have no intention of getting up until 6:05. Every 9 minutes my alarm sounds. It’s not an obnoxious sounding alarm but I am asking myself “why do you do that?” My days are often not gentle or tranquil, to put it mildly. I have decided that starting tomorrow I will wake up gently and quietly, starting my day in a tranquil way. I will set my alarm clock to its gentle sound setting to wake me 10 minutes earlier than I need to wake. From now on I will not hit the snooze but have extra time to begin my day in a calm fashion. Even if circumstances (and, let’s face it, other people) will seem to set out to destroy my calm, I will intentionally seek to at least begin my day serenely.

First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

Here we go again — I let this blog go in 2018. Why? Time, writer’s block, etc. Even positive people get dragged down without even realizing it sometimes. With this blog I promise to offer practical tidbits on getting/staying positive. It’s not easy striving to be the positive version of yourself but, in my experience, it’s well worth it!
