The Most Important Type of Love

Love is one of the best parts (if not the best part) about life. For a lot of us, our first experience with love comes from the person or the people who raised us. They cared for us during our most vulnerable time in life. When you’re a baby, you can’t do anything for yourself. You rely completely on your …


You are Enough

I love musicals. The first one I ever saw live was The Lion King. I was eight or nine, and I didn’t appreciate it back then, but now I definitely value every one that I see. The best ones are the ones you can see live in the theatre, but they’re also extremely expensive, so I don’t get to go …

Just Be You

I eat healthy (most of the time) and I workout at least four times a week, but even though I do this, I’m still no size zero. No one looks at me and thinks that I could walk down a runway during fashion week, but at the same time no one is looking at me and thinking that I should …


Taking a Look in the Mirror

When you’re a kid, the mirror is no big thing to you. It’s an object that allows you to see what you look like, but you could probably live without it. Generally speaking, kids tend to not care about how they look. They throw on whatever clothes they find at the top of the drawer or in the front of …


Back to School

When we were kids, we went to school to learn. For five days a week and for seven to eight hours a day we would walk into a classroom, sit down at a desk, and listen to our teachers as they stood before us and taught us different subjects. We learned that two plus two equals four. We learned that …

You gotta jump over the precipice…Don’t drop into it.

Today, I woke up thinking about the word, Precipice. According to the World English Dictionary, Precipice means the steep sheer face of a cliff or crag or a precarious situation. The definition has me envisioning myself standing right on the edge of said cliff, looking down into an abyss of precariousness. That sounds scary, right? I mean…what is down there?

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? 😉

Operation Beautiful! You are what you think you are.

There are so many ways, so small and easy, to help you maintain positive self esteem through affirmations. Be creative about it because the more personal it is to you, the better they work! You can also give back to others in need of some positivity by leaving affirmations for them to find. Sometimes our positivity can come from knowing that we can make others smile and feel better about themselves.

Want to learn more about spreading the positive word for others? We here at Positivity Works! have found a great movement called Operation Beautiful. Operation Beautiful was created by a blogger who believes that if you don’t take the time to reach out to other people in a positive way, you’ll never be satisfied. She started a movement through her website to encourage others to leave positive messages for others such as “You are Beautiful!” and “Smile!” in public places such as public restrooms, libraries, gyms, workplaces, coffee shops, etc. The idea seems to have caught on as the movement is getting lots of press and tons of followers.
