Good Morning –
“What defines us is how well we rise after falling”
What a GREAT quote, huh? I love it!
Yes it all but 2:47 am and I am wide awake. Oddly, the birds outside are already chirping away. I think they woke me up. Yes I suffer a bit from insomnia too. I learned long ago, to embrace this instead of fight it. I can be a lot more productive that way.
Just now, I was catching up on my email correspondence, which I always find interesting. I love when people respond and ask questions as I feel the only dumb question is the one not asked. It as well, opens dialogue and expresses interest.
Anyway, most of the email I receive is of a positive nature and I have yet to get anything really ugly. This is not to say that some of it I don’t find a bit bemusing. Most of it, deserves an answer and I always try to answer the best I can.
With that said… how about a little Q & A?
QUESTIONS ( all part of the same email) & MY ANSWERS
1) If things are so bad for you, how do you remain so cheerful?
Because generally speaking, I am a pretty cheerful person by nature, and prefer to look at the bright side of things rather than the alternative of being miserable all the time.
2) Do you believe in all this motivational mumbo-jumbo ?
Mumbo-Jumbo? Haaaa, I can’t believe you used that term. I haven’t heard it in years. Yes, as a matter of fact, I do! I have a strong marketing background and believe a person’s overall mind-set plays a major roll in their overall successes .
3) Aren’t you afraid your “Help Me” message is going to get lost in all the positivity ?
Good question! I actually thought about that in developing this blog however I came to the conclusion that the plusses of tempering my need with some inspiration far outweighed the negatives.
It’s true! The primary purpose of ‘All But Homeless’ is to raise funds ( and I don’t think I can be any clearer unless I stood out on the side of the road with a cardboard sign) but this also represents a rebirth of sorts for me.
My ‘positivity’ took a big hit over the last year or so, and I needed these inspirations as much or more than anyone else. At the same time, I want to inspire others on this journey. I mean if I can help one person who may be stuggling with some part of themselves or their situation… then it has been worth it.
The final reason is purely strategic and has everything to do with the Laws of Attraction. When you put out a positive energy, nine times out of ten, that’s what you’re going to get back and that means more traffic for the blog. Besides I need all the positive energy I can get in my midst. 🙂 It’s pretty simple stuff, once you get the hang of it, but I am learning that it needs to be practiced on a regular basis for it to be effective and that’s what I am trying to do here..
Thanks for writing. I hope I’ve answered your questions. ~ C
