I’m thinking of setting up The Pollyanna Plan Challenge Group on Facebook (as a closed, private group) – maybe starting with a 30 day challenge to find a reason to feel glad/happy/joyful every day.
You see, what I’m discovering is that without the incentive and focus that The Pollyanna Plan Challenge gave me (writing a blog post about my reason to feel glad/happy/joyful every single day for 365 days), it’s all too easy to think, “Oh, I’ll do it later”, and then completely forget.
Since I began The Pollyanna Plan 2 at the end of February this year, I’ve been writing my daily, happy reasons in my journal. Only I haven’t – as yesterday I noticed that I’d skipped 5 whole days!! Yikes! I have been thinking of my reasons every day, but I just hadn’t taken the time to write a few sentences about them.
Then, last night, as I was (guiltily) catching up, thinking back over the past days and journaling, I truly realised the power of writing this stuff down.
The writing part helps me to really focus on gratitude and ramp up those oh-so-important happy, positive vibes, which doesn’t seem to happen when I just think about my reasons. I can honestly say that each and every time I write down my reason to feel glad/happy/joyful, no matter what has happened that day, I feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside and I’m smiling on the outside.
So, it occurred to me that maybe if a few of us were doing this together – just for 30 days, don’t worry, I’m not expecting you to do a whole year – it would give us the incentive and inspiration we need to stick to it. Plus, being part of a glad/happy/joyful Pollyanna Plan group really could be lots of fun! 🙂
Sooo *I say nervously*, what do you think? Do you have any suggestions? And would anyone be interested?
