Power of Negative

September 23, 2009 1:24pm CST
I have always wondered what would happen if I could actually go without any negative things bursting out of my mouth. I decided to give this a try and I want to see if others will share in this intressting experiement. Try to go 1 whole day without a single negative thing to say. Disipling children is allowed and you may listen to someone else speaking negative, just not contribute. I did this for 1 day already and was amazed that my kids acted better today and I did not feel stressed today either. It was hard to have to think about what I was going to say and I had to stop myself more than a few times. It is surpising how often one says negative things throughout the day. I know this is not a new idea, but I thought that I would put it into practice. Shooting for day 2 tomorrow.

That is great. I don't think it should be just saying negative things but also thinking them! Thank you for this...good luck.

Hi pittawadda, you are on to the secret of positive thinking. There is enough negativity swirling around us on a daily basis, we sure don't need to add to it. Keep on with your little experiment, I think you will be amazed by the results. We do the same thing, only we put a set amount of money in a jar every time we "slip", which at first, was a lot! The old adage of "think before you speak" is not a new concept, you are certainly correct there. It seems we have just strayed away from this practise and today's society is indicative of that. Don't get me wrong - I know there are plenty of good people left, I just think there is always room for improvement. Just my thoughts, M.
