I wasn’t sure what positive words I wanted to add to this post this morning until I saw this on Twitter:
Even (or especially) during difficult, uncertain, and anxiety-provoking times, it helps to add a positive word.
What positive word would you add to the jar? You can add that positive word to the comments section, below.
Now it’s time for me to add positive images to this post.
I considered adding the positive word “awareness” instead, but I want to put in a positive word for acceptance. In therapy, I often say that acceptance is the first step to change — you need to recognize and accept where you are, even if you don’t like it — before you can take the next step forward.
Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “add a positive word”:
That reminds me of an exercise I did with my family decades ago when we all added positive words about each other on paper. After our move to our home by the ocean, I’ve lost track my piece of paper, but the positive words are where they belong — in my heart — even if some family members are gone.
I also think I added those positive words to this blog, somewhere.
I’m positively giddy that I found some of them by searching for “family exercise,” here.
Positive words are out there. Strangely, those are often hard to accept.
As always, I add a positive word to the end of each post.
