Hey there Positopians,

Mandy and Jonathan Chew here!

We've been listening to an audiobook called How to be a No-limit Person by Wayne Dyer and he said, "What is the greatest quality of life that a human being can have?... The ability to enjoy life every day is the greatest quality you can have."

Have you ever been around someone that just had a zest for life? Someone full of energy? Someone playful, fun, and spontaneous? Those are the people we like to be around.

He goes on to say, "If you can’t enjoy your life, then you are a burden to somebody (usually to a lot of people) and the more burdensome you are to other people," the more limits you place on your ability to have amazing relationships with the people you love where you are all fully alive.

Life has thrown us many roadblocks and curveballs this year, but that shouldn't stop us from enjoying life in different ways. Look in the small crevices and quiet moments, and you may find joy beyond your wildest imagination.

7 Happiness Tricks To Try Right Now
 

Written by Courtenay Smith, Real Simple
 

There’s some unique tips here that are pretty cool.

Like Mental Time Travel (“When you look back at a bruising conflict from your past, it probably seems much less upsetting in the present. That will likely be true of whatever is bothering you now”)

and Mapping your Social Universe (“Try this exercise: Draw a symbol of yourself (it can be as simple as a circle) on a sheet of paper and label it with your name. Then draw everyone in your life, visually representing their importance. If your aunt lives far away but is a strong, positive influence, draw her symbol far from yours but large. A frenemy’s symbol may be close but small. Next, identify one person on this map you’d like to connect with more deeply. Take action in the next 30 days.”)

 

“Failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success...use it as a tool to become successful.” ~Arianna Huffington

Here's to a safe and happy year ahead!
