Positive vibes.

Positivity 21 day challenge…. Day 2.

In every day, there are 1,440 minutes.  That means we have 1,440 daily opportunities to make a positive impact. – Les Brown

Starting this self-imposed challenge I didn’t stop to think of what these 21 days would be like, or if they had any significance.  I just saw 21 days left this month – 21 days to make to habit – PERFECTO!  But in true everything happens for a reason fashion, today is my 3 year anniversary of my official diagnosis.

What a great time to focus on the positive aspects.

Today I woke up early to start a new routine of morning yoga, went to work and then hit the gym… in the same shoes that I bought 3 years ago to cheer myself up.  They are the coolest Star Wars Vans ever, seriously ever.

My first thoughts today were fear, because I remember the sadness that come from the diagnosis – how could I talk about being positive when I too struggle with depression over my chronic illness.  As I sang yesterday, with R.E.M; Everybody hurts sometimes… However, the positivity comes with how we come out of the shadows and embrace the bad.

Much like the day 3 years ago, I was sad and scared – but I bought some kick ass shoes to do kick ass things in.  Though the day sucked a bit, I found a silver lining and did not let Lupus own me.  I have never let my illness own me, define me or depress me (for too long).

This is going to be a hard challenge for me to meet, but I am so excited to share my 21 days of positivity with you!  Join me and spread the positivity.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.  –Helen Keller

Lily up and spread your petals to the sun, soak in the love and bask in the glory; be alive my friends.
