A Positive Story to Close the Year

Yesterday, I met up with a friend to catch up on the highlights of our year. She asked me what I did to keep a positive attitude. Upon reflection, I shared with her three things that I believe have helped me make every moment count.

I’ve learned to follow my instincts. They have always led me down the right path. By listening to my inner voice, I also honor my truth.

I’m fortunate to know many people with fresh and unique insights. It’s amazing how much I’ve learned from them. Staying in touch keeps me infused with new inspiration.

I feel good about myself when I’m being productive. Creating gives me a sense of accomplishment and it moves me closer to my goal. Afterward I can reward myself with something that provides pure enjoyment and relaxation.

After my friend and I parted ways, I thought of another thing that helps me stay positive. Gratitude. Saying thanks reminds me how much I’m surrounded by generous people and validates them in return.

So as this year comes to a close, I would like to take a moment to thank you for your interest in Barkada Circle. Because of your support, we launched successfully last fall and are now preparing for the next workshop series, so stay tuned!

Lastly, I’d like to share with you these photos from our inaugural sessions and the video of our kickoff last November featuring the storytelling of Free Street Theater.

Enjoy welcoming 2012 and I look forward to seeing you soon.
