Karyn’s June Challenge: Keepin’ it Positive Part 2

So for my May Challenge I attempted to write down the positive things that happened in my day-to-day life… and I epically failed. So for my June Challenge I decided to try again, this time yielding better results.

My first issue was that I told myself that I was only allowed to write down things in a book. Unfortunately, I didn’t carry it with me everywhere I went. This time I was more reasonable and used my phone instead. It’s always with me so I had no excuse to not write things down.

I found that just jotting down very simple things that made me smile was easy enough. Pretty much any time I received a text or a notification I used it as an opportunity to reflect and write down something new.

My notes ranged from waking up before my alarm to finding $10 in my pocket. I also used this as a chance to keep positive about my finances. I would note that I paid my bills on time or that I set up an easier system to check my banking.

I know this may seem like a mundane task that doesn’t really result in anything big, but watching your list of positivity grow helps remind you of all the good that really does happen during your day.

I did have some serious downs during the month of June, but when I felt like there were no ups coming my way I would peruse through my list and remember that even the smallest thing that brings a smile to your face can be all you need.

I’m going to keep trying to update my list on the daily even though my challenge is over. I tend to be a Negative Nancy when the going gets tough, so I’m hoping that building this ever-growing list of good times will help me keep my chin up.
