By blogging about and reading some great posts about being positive, I have decided to make some changes in my life.
I am starting with the simple things in the hope that it will snowball into other areas of my life. Being positive is not always easy for me, especially in the winter.
The first thing I have done, which is not at all fun, is take note of when I am being negative. Sadly, this is quite a lot at present, but I aspire to change.
The next is to read about ways of being positive and embrace them. Treating myself more kindly is high on my list as I can be my own worst critic.
One area that I do have control over is what I present on my radio show. I have been searching for a style and theme for it and last week it struck me that I should do what my heart has been telling me. Do something positive.
I have long disliked the way the media portrays our world in a mostly negative light. There are amazing things by amazing people done all the time, but they rarely get the recognition they deserve.
So, I present my feel good radio show. Upbeat music, positive and happy news stories and for this week, top jokes as proven by science, which goes to show science does not always get it right.
Listen to the show on the Mixcloud link and please comment if you have any good news stories I can share, happy songs to play or jokes that are actually funny.
Take care buddies,
Are you a 19-year-old version of me that has been told you need glasses and are worried about how they are going to affect how cool you look? No problem. Simply wait 18 years until you are picked as a special candidate and paid to test wipes that clean glasses. This way you will see that most things can be seen as a positive eventually. You will also look more intelligent in job interviews.
You are being forced to stand on the bus and you are worried about keeping your balance? No problem. Simply use the time to practise your surfing skills.
Are you worried about being bald? No problem. Simply do what birds do with their nests and whenever you see a spare strand of hair, stick it to your head. In no time at all, you will have luxuriant locks that will make even the Brad Pitts of the world look on with envy.
Someone has done something so offensive that someone else is spinning in their grave in disgust? No problem. Simply get the person to continue being offensive and then harness the power generated by the spinning corpse and convert it into energy, finally solving the scientific riddle of how to achieve perpetual motion and the Earth’s reliance on fossil fuels in one fell swoop.
So, you are a really big jumper that has been left for ages in a drawer and are feeling very left out? No problem. Simply wait until winter where your warm woolen wonder will be fully appreciated.
Dark winter nights getting you down? No problem. Simply wait a week or two and Christmas lights will be out to brighten everyone’s evenings.
You don’t like Christmas lights? Then you are dead inside and I cannot help you.
