Having completed my 365 day challenge to post a tip, organisation, cause, issue or inspiration every day for 1 whole year (2012-2013) to help each of us to figure out how we can make a difference to the world we live in, I decided to continue posting!
I am now volunteering in Los Angeles and working with victims of human trafficking.
Stay tuned for more on that and I hope you will be inspired to start where you are and use what you have to bring on world change!

I am teetering on the edge of committing
to something big for June and am unsure if I can achieve it, but it is really on
my heart… I have been praying about it and then read the following post by Joyce Meyer
tonight, which I felt very inspired by. I hope it encourages and blesses you.

I encourage you to practice being a positive person. It’s just a
matter of breaking one bad habit and forming a new one. I was so negative at
one time in my life that if I even tried to think two positive thoughts in a
row my brain got into a cramp. But now I am very positive and actually don’t
enjoy being with people who are negative.
Discipline is required any time you are forming a new habit. You
might consider putting some reminders around your house or in your car, like
little signs that say “Be positive.” Ask a good friend or spouse to remind you
if they hear you slipping into negativism.
Practice trusting yourself rather than doubting yourself. If you
are applying for a promotion at work, don’t think to yourself or say, “I
probably won’t get it.” Pray and ask God to give you favor with your employer
and then say, “I believe I will get the job!” And if you try and the outcome
isn’t what you were hoping for, then tell yourself, “If the job was right for
me, God would give it to me, and since He didn’t, He must have something even
better in mind for me.” You can train yourself to be positive in what appears
to be a negative situation.
me where I am stuck in negativity and need to break through to trusting You.
Help me to have the right thoughts and attitudes that move me forward. Amen.
