The power of positivity is not some airy fairy concept people, this here is a super-duper power!
Superman may have been able to fly, run very fast and hide behind a pair of out-dated spectacles, but his true power was his unshakeable optimism that good would triumph.
Spiderman had a fondness for brightly coloured spandex, could generate webs on a whim and spent too much time swooning over Mary-Jane than was deemed healthy, but it was his positive "can-do" attitude that made him hang in there (mind the pun) and keep fighting for all that is good.
And then there's my favourite real-life superhero, Obama! The man whose campaign slogan reeked with positivity, hope and all that feel-good ish, say it with now, "YES WE CAN."
This past Tuesday night i watched Jim Carrey's flick, "Yes Man" which not only had me in fits of laughter but also made me nod in agreement.
To embrace Life's gifts and opportunities, you need to open yourself up to the possibilities and just say Yes...not to everything though, but to the things that you previously would have said No to 'cause you either believed;
- You would fail at it;
- It's not your usual kinda thing; and,
- People would judge you.
We are on this earth for such a short period of time (this past weeks many disasters reaffirms this), it just doesn't make any sense to limit our options and experiences. We need to live big, think big, love big and it all happens with a lot of Yes and embracing the power of positivity.
True story :-)

"For some people the day comes
when they have to declare the great Yes
or the great No. It’s clear at once who has the Yes
ready within him, and saying it.
he goes from honour to honour, strong in his conviction.
he who refuses does not repent. Asked again.
He’d still say no,
Yet that no – the right no –
drags him down all his life."
364 days and counting: Have you got your tickets? Neither do I, but i am gonna get them eventually, even if they're shite ones where i end up watching Kazakhstan versus Bolivia, i am there like a bear! These type of events rarely happen, and i'm quite excited they're happening in my back-yard, yippee :-)
Oh, and if any of you are real die-hard footie fans hoping to get a peek at your favourite players, FIFA is currently hiring 15 000 volunteers from all over the world to assist if you're keen.
Thing is though, supposedly one of the rules is that you can't talk to the players or approach them in anyway. So if you are happy to swoon and/or hero-worship from a distance, this may be the gig for you, lol.
You can ring my bell: My phone is on life-support, the phone priest is on his way and is about to read it its last rites! Ella (my phone) and I have enjoyed just over 2 years of companionship, which in phone years is like forever!!!
A classy lady if i may say so myself, Ella has managed to stay fashion forward and relevant no matter the competition. Sadly, her current battery life leaves much to be desired, not to mention the countless scratches she's occured when i have dropped her.
Ella will be gone soon, in the meantime i need to find her replacement, any suggestions?
Not only is the weekend upon us, but it's a loooooooooooong 4 day weekend to boot! Next Tuesday is a public holiday ("Youth Day") and i took the Monday off work. The challenge is to find non-money related activities to pass the time 'cause as Simply Red once crooned, "Money's too tight to mention."
Happy frolicking chickens,
