I often find myself obsessing over minutiae, worrying about trivial aspects of life that are out of my control. In my pursuit of perfection, I find myself losing perspective of what matters most, of the substance of life. I plan to use this thread to record one positive thought, event or feeling everyday. Something that reminds me to reflect on the good, and be grateful. I am making a 100 day commitment as a start, though I fully hope to keep at this as long as I can. I've been mulling over starting this thread for a while now. Discussed it with a friend sometime back. Finally decided to take Nike's advice -- Just do it! Since the purpose of this exercise is to develop a positive outlook, I believe 'Personal Growth' is the right forum for this thread. If you want to join me, I'd love the company. Just start recording your own positive thoughts day by day, and we'll stop and take stock in 100 days. PS: This thread is for posting positive thoughts and recollections only. Please use the sticky Gabfest thread for feedback and encouragement. Thank you!
