Obviously, I highly approve and condone the challenge in this thread, and it’s something I think everyone should at least try. Even if you can only make it three our four days, you’re going to notice how swiftly the “tone” of your life (and the events, experiences, and opportunities is has to offer) takes on a more positive, constructive, and progressive “theme”.
Did this for well over 7 days, didn’t know manimal came up with it. Posted it on my blog a while ago, and updated it here too!
It becomes addicting, you wake up and you want to smnile. You want to be happy. Everything seems like an opportunity to be very happy. Clouds made me giggle, co-workers seemed swell, the day just seemed to be easier on the mind.
After a while though it definitely seemed like I was pushing it. Not because of the duration, but simply because by pure chance you’re going to have a bad day, where smiling just isn’t going to do much. Those days you just gotta pack up the happiness for the next day.
Back when I first discovered this site in the fall, I was sitting in an unfirmiliar position in life and wasn’t necessarily comfortable. I wanted so much, but I just talked about it. Manimal basically told me “just do it you sook, enough talk”. I closed my old account and disappeared for a few months took my self discovery to a new level. Now I’m consciously aware of nearly everything around me, and though I may not understand everything that goes on around me, I accept it. Patience has giving me control. And I like to think manimal gave me the kick in the shithole that got me going! In my language, welal’in kwis!
@ijesuschrist There are no bad days, only bad ways of dealing with circumstances.
@kirkwilly Glad you found it helpful, glad to hear about your progress too. In my language, bra jobbat mannen.
@manimal, I don’t believe the brain is capable of 24/7 bliss. What goes up must come down – its only natural to ride the waves of our minds…
