One Day, One Daaaaaay…Kindness will be infectious

As the year comes to a close, we are all thinking about resolutions and what we want to change in the new year. One of ours here at Positivity Works! is to continue to encourage a healthy and optimistic view on life for both our readers and ourselves. In that effort to bring us all into the new year with a smile, we have found a great video supporting wondrously positive ideas about kindness and it’s ability to improve happiness. The music is pretty cool too. So why not take a look? Maybe it can inspire you to spread the kindness, too!

“But why not smile anyway?”

Need a little pick me up? Dunn dunh dunh dunnn…Wally has arrived to save the day! Back from his adventures in You Tube land, he has found a wonderful jewel of a video made by a young lady full of inspirational thoughts and a great message. The star of our chosen Video Pick for Good Vibes writes simple but powerful words of understanding. The message…Sure, life has its ups and downs and twists and turns and sometimes back-handed face slaps, but everybody hurts, you are not alone, and why not smile anyway? You’ve got nothing to lose. And if you’re feeling up to it, spread the love too!

A peaceful day

There are times when we just need to sit ourselves down and breathe and relax. And when we do it, we need to be ok with it and celebrate it. In an effort to practice what I preach, I headed on over to a sunny and beautiful garden complete with a Koi pond. I wanted to just breathe, be calm, and look at the beauty around me instead of just going, going, going with no time for appreciation. It was wonderful and I got the brilliant (maybe in my own head?) idea to try to capture this time of relaxation for the blog readers as well.

Happiness Marketing: Our Favorite Kind

A while back I was noticing this great trend of advertising that promoted positive lifestyle choices or keeping a positive outlook. Most of that trend began when the world started to recognize economic strife and needed a little encouragement to get out and stimulate the sickly economy (i.e. convince consumers, with a big smile and a hug, to spend their hard-earned money on their products).

So, since I find the idea of what I call “happiness marketing” to be such a grand thing, I always notice it and think to share with all of you, positive thinkers. I mean, what if you missed it? 😉

We have a Dream…let’s celebrate

Few orators have the ability to simultaneously uplift, give hope, spread love and help us build our dreams, but when they do…it is inspiring. In celebration of one of the best, we here at Positivity Works! wanted to share Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most famous speech and the epitome of positive thinking. Enjoy and have a dream today!!!

Words to think on…Just enjoy yourself

So tonight
Gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
An’ just enjoy yourself
C’mon and groove
Let the madness in the music get to you
Life ain’t so bad at all
