31 days of positive thinking, day 1


Wow. I’ve had less than 24 hours to consider this project of writing on one topic for 31 consecutive days. I’m going against my think-it-through-and-plan-extensively self and jumping right in! Ack! Please be patient with me as my thoughts evolve. I cannot tell you what day 31 will look like. I can only tell you what I hope for… that the doubt and worry that so often cloud my face will be replaced with a light of faith and gratitude that propels me forward with optimism and becomes an encouraging influence to those I love.

I love Helen Keller. The shift from shadow to sunshine in the following quote perfectly describes what I hope to accomplish.

For some time I have been collecting inspiring quotes and articles about positive thinking. During this month of October I will revisit those items, share them and start practicing their advice.

This page will be home to 31 Days of Positive Thinking and links to new content will be added daily. If you wish to get a daily notice, simply like CG Dickson [the blog] on faebook.

Heidi of Operation Organization - What a wonderful topic that EVERYONE could benefit from! :)

I am a lover of words and inspiring/motivational quotes as well.

One of my favorites is,

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”

Cheers and ‘Happy 31 Days’!
