The Power of A Positive Attitude

CSA Feb 02

If you have read this blog for a while, you know that I believe in the power of a positive attitude. A positive attitude (or lack therefore) affects all aspects of our lives, and having a positive attitude hugely affects our happiness.

Do you have a positive attitude in life? How about when it comes to work? My Wellness Wednesday post on Career Action Now focuses on the importance of a positive attitude when it comes to your career and highlights an article that lists six things you can do to be happier at work now. I also describe how keeping a gratitude list helped me through uncertainties while I was in grad school. If you are interested, head over there and check it out.

Also, I have been getting a few questions as to what I used to do for a living and what I’m doing now. I used to work in several law firms in different capacities, from legal secretary to paralegal, for over fifteen years. For the past several years, I have been working as a college instructor.

Question: What brings you joy? I always try to have some inexpensive flowers on the dining room table; they always bring a smile to my face… :-) I also have bright, uplifting photos of flowers as well as low-maintenance plants in my office.

Be well,
