Welcome to Positive-Living-Now!

I want your whole life to be sparkled with joy. And when it fades, I want you to sigh a long, satisfied sigh of pleasure and to find yourself refreshed, relaxed, and ready to meet the moment at hand, whatever it may hold.

Glasses clink.
Music plays.
Balloons and fireworks fill the air.
Hearts throb.
Feet tap.
Laughter rises.
Trumpets blare.
Bics Click.
Elephants parade by.  (Elephants?)
Fireworks burst.
Coat tailed waiters carry in a giant cake, ablaze with candles.
Men cry.
Women swoon.

“Okay, okay,” she says, grabbing the microphone.  “Enough of that.  Now let’s get to work.”

What?  What?” you say, rubbing your eyes.  “Did someone say ‘work?’ I thought we were going to party!”

“We just did!” she says, handing you a plate of cake.  “But positive moments are fleeting, you know.  You want more, you gotta pay your dues.  Want some coffee with that cake?  You look like you could use some.”

Suddenly you find yourself sitting at your computer, reading words on the opening page of the new Positive-Living-Now blog.  Great little dream there, wasn’t it?  Can you still feel the tingle as it fades away?  That was the joy of celebration, the bright dazzle of it.  And I want you to have more.

I want your whole life to be sparkled with joy.  And when it fades, I want you to sigh a long, satisfied sigh of pleasure and to find yourself refreshed, relaxed, and ready to meet the moment at hand, whatever it may hold.  That’s what positive living is all about.

It’s about drinking in all life’s joys and wonders, and being open to whatever life holds.  And the purpose of Positive-Living-Now is to provide you with ways to do just that, to find the best in life, and in you, and to make it even better.
