Hello everyone! So glad to have found this team. I recently joined the SparkLive team and found this team through last weeks meeting. I know that being positive can really help change your life. There's a saying I like... change your mind, change your life!

When I practice being positive (and I'm sure you all know that it isn't always easy) I truly feel so much better. I've seen a few people here mention how difficult it is to stay positive when there are negative attitudes surrounding you. I find this to be very true and am hoping that by joining this group and posting something positive (at least 3 times a week per the team goal) that I will build a new habit to help me achieve all my goals.

I'm happy to be here and looking forward to getting to know you!

Andrea

~~Andrea~~

Don't just dream it, LIVE IT!

Good morning all-
Hi JESS2Bu- your outlook is great. Feel free to give your ideas to us. How did you accomplish your wonderful outlook. I used to work with someone that had the right attitude like yours. Like when she used to say forget about what happened yesterday- start each day fresh and ready to tackle new things. Life is to short to not enjoy happiness for others as well as yourself. Take care and keep smiling emoticon Betty

Hey everyone... I have been on SP on and off a long time, but I am new to this team. I was excited to find y'all cause I have spent the last year or so working on positive living. I tried to go back to the teams that I used to be on long ago, and my perspective proved to not work with what used to work. So I went on a search of positive teams and found a couple that looked right for me... you all are certainly what appears to be a perfect fit. I need to blog more and I need to be around others that attempt to pull the positive from life.

In the last year of being positive and happy I have confused most people in my life... They come over and complain about trivial or even big stuff and I feel compelled to make them see the other side. At first I fought the desire to share my happiness and positive outlook, and then I just went with it. After a while everyone began to look forward to my happiness.... In my regular life my happiness works, but here in spark so far it doesn't. Lots of people want to wallow in misery... or fully experience misery.... I just can't anymore... I hope this is a place where happiness is welcomed and understood.

The hardest thing I ever changed was my mind...

Scars remind us of where we have been. They do not dictate where we are going...

Good morning everybody-
It is going to be a beautiful day here in Wisconsin , so will get out and enjoy it.
Welcome to all the new members- I need to blog more so love to hear about how others are handling challenges and having postive attitudes while doing it.
I have a younger sister who really knows the power of positive. She was diagnosed with breast cancer last november. She has gone thru surgery-chemo and just is so upbeat and tells us all if we have any questions- feel free to ask. So here I am all self conscious around her and wanting to know things but also don't want to remind her of what she has gone thru. But she senses it and asks what is on our minds. I am just so thankful to have such an inspiration in our life. So no matter how bad things seem I just think of her and how she tells us that life is good and lets get on with it.. Have a great day everyone.. Betty

Thanks for the welcome Wanda! My name is Tim, although Arthur is my middle name. I was named after my maternal great grandfather and his nickname at Chrysler motors when he worked there was "Arthurtom" as his name was Arthur Thompson. When I was logging into Spark People for the very first time I was thinking of a nickname to use and I thought of him as he was a pretty good guy...so I went with it.

I blog about 1-2 times a week on average and do have a dozen or so video blogs. I always try to be upbeat in my writings because it keeps me moving the bar higher. When I stumbled across your team I thought to myself "how appropriate!" emoticon

I joined this team because I have been using my blog to talk about the weight issues that have plagued me for years. I am trying to do this in an upbeat, humorous and personal way.

Welcome, Amanda! It's nice to meet you. I agree with having other people point out bad choices! Went through that with people with whom I work! Made me eat worse just "to show them! Ha!" Instead I harmed myself.

Take advantage of the daily challenges...and weekly challenges. This team has some wonderful people who can teach you to be positive and healthy!!

Hello,
My name is amanda and i live in Texas. I have been overweight half of my life, started about 13-14. Now being at 23 has now the motivation since i bought the wedding dress i will where next year. :) It's a size 14, but i'm hoping and wishing i can take it down a couple of sizes, maybe an 8? :) Everytime i try to lose weight in the past, my mom would make rude comments/remarks when i made a bad choice. I know what is bad and good, I'm hard enough on myself, i don't need anyone else to help me with that. i love the positive comments and attitudes towards being healthy. :)

Welcome, Jayek!

"Actions speak louder than words." Heard that from my mom millions of times...so I think being positive can be contagious! Whenever someone is being negative about anyone or anything, I try to turn it around by talking about something positive/good...especially about the person whom they may be criticizing.

Daily challenges are a great resource!

Welcome Jayek2...so glad to have you join us.

Persistence...that's my key to working with those that aren't quite so positive. Refusing to be drawn into the negative talk, walking away if necessary. Finding the positive in the moment and sharing it with them. Sometimes it just comes down to letting those people in your life that are negative go! Not an easy thing to do, but sometimes necessary.
Finding ways to share the "law of attraction" can make a difference. You attract into your life those things that you are focused upon.
Hope we can help you out in being a positive influence in the lives of those around you and in your own.

Hugs,
Wanda

hello fellow positive people.
I believe that each day I live my best life, being the best I can be and appreciate all that comes to me.
My struggles right now are how to deal with co workers and/or others who are negative most of the time. I try to teach /show them that there is good in everything if they opened their eyes.
I guess I am looking for this group to be a resource to help me add on to my tool kit called life. I may post here and there, but please know I will always read and smile away thinking ~ YES, you are right!!
O Happy Day

Hello,, positive bloggers. I love the power of positive thinking and over the years have seen the great results from it. I am looking to lift others up and be lifted up. Hope you don't mind my climbing aboard with all of you. Have a positively glorious day, no excuses. And as John articulated in his blog, when you are not feelin' it in your heart, "just do it."

Hi everyone! I just came across a link to this team, and I'm so glad I did. I'm Aharona, and I've actually been a positive bogger for most of my time on Sparkpeople. I use my blog as a daily gratitude journal. Focusing on all that I have to be grateful for keeps me upbeat and positive, even on those days when it's not so easy to do. Another Sparker turned me on to this, and I'm happy to say that I've been able to "pay it forward" by inspiring others to do the same. Looking forward to getting to know you and sharing mutual inspiration!

I just joined the team this morning. It looks like an active team, which is important to me because active teams keep me focused!

My name is Pixie, I'm a 48 yr old housewife, mother to two grown boys and born again Christian. I lost 86 lbs in 2005/2006 but unfortunately I gained most of it back in 2007! I spent most of 2008 trying (and failing) to get back on track. But now I'm back on track with a vengeance! I'm ready to quit dieting and to start LIVING HEALTHY. I'm going to lose the weight and keep it off this time.

I have lost 4 lbs and a little over 7 inches in just the past two weeks and I plan to keep on going! I've got a lot to lose but I know I can do it.

I look forward to being a part of this team. Please feel free to come by my Sparkpage to say hello when you get a chance!
