The 2000 things I learned again this year -- a positive attitude really does help

I got Jeffrey Gitomer's Little Gold Book of Yes Attitude out
of a neighbourhood free book library, and it was, and is a 
life changer.  He warns that it is corny, and the book is far
from perfect, but for a person who taught Positive Psychology
for 10 years, it was an eye opener.  Being positive Gitomer
says is just the start of the Yes attitude.

So whenever I find myself down, or annoyed, or wandering
around my house alone complaining I remember his 2 minute
rule.  He says that if you have a Yes attitude you will get
over any annoyance in 2 minutes.  Quite the challenge.  But 
just reading his book has made me much more positive in
my daily life.

So I'd give that 2000, and that means that for now we're finished with
the numbers.  It's my Monthaversary of my wedding day.  And
it's Christmas Eve.  I wish you Happy whatever holiday you
celebrate, and Happy Christmas, if that is one of them.

Have a loving your life day!
