The 7 day positivity experiment – Day 1

Didn’t realise that this is my first post in July! Wow.. it’s almost the end of the month and I haven’t written a thing here. The past month has been one big roller coaster ride – its gone by at break-neck speed, taken me to stupefying heights and stomach-churning lows – and often left me dizzy with tears in my eyes. At this rate, I have been left with almost no energy to blog or sometimes with so many thoughts that I have felt the need to pop some Valium (don’t worry, I haven’t done that, yet!).

However, in the middle of all this chaos, I came across this blog written by my friend Prerna about the positivity experiment. It’s a simple experiment.. you just write about 5 things that you are grateful for, everyday, for a week. If you’ve read my earlier post about gratitude, then you’ll know I am a great believer in the attitude of gratitude (though I need to practice it more :)). With the tumultuous time I have been having the past month… this is exactly the kind of simple turn-around that I need.. so here goes.

Today, I am grateful for:

1. Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood:

I went for their show in Hyderabad today.. I laughed till my cheeks hurt and my sides ached! They’re really as good as they are on TV.. and it’s real fun to watch them live 🙂

2. My mom!

She got us the passes for the show 🙂

3. My work with Freedom Under Construction

Though I crib about it, I complain to my friends about it, it’s really been a great learning experience. It throws up new challenges everyday. My life has not been boring since I started working on it and.. I have learned many new things about myself. Most importantly, I have learned that even though I may have trouble trusting myself – there are people who love me always – Valerie, Santhan, Sheetal, Apoorva, Kiran, Anil, Pannu, Mamma, Papa, my grandmother, Alysha, Mujeeb, Sesh, Nanda – thank you.

4. My beautiful new computer

I don’t know what I have been doing all these months without a Mac 🙂

5. My Ascended Masters iPhone App

Well, I am actually thanking an App! But this is more than just an App (Apoorva and Santhan will vouch for that one!). I use it to do readings for my friends, I use it guide me in many ways. I really thank the Ascended Masters for coming into my life in this way..

More tomorrow..

And to you, thank you for reading this post 🙂

  2. Good Write! Only positive living brings positive experiments in our daily dealings…this is an insight to encourage good and satisfactory existence with our folks and environment.

    This simple experience has inspired me to also have my blog someday…you have made it so simple but, reaching and deep.

    Thanks you made me glow too….
