Today I'm thankful for feeling the dark gloom that has engulfed the last few months starting to properly lift, starting to feel myself again and starting to gain the confidence back that seemed to be shattered by recent events.
I've been reading 'The Magic of Thinking Big' by David Schwatrz, recommended by someone I admire professionally. This is the third or fourth in a series of books that straddle the line between 'professional development' and 'self help' that I've read of late, none of which have managed to switch the glass-half-empty attitude I'd found myself adopting to the much more satistfying and productive glass half full approach. For anyone who wants to develop professionally and develop their own 'brand' at work, it's highly recommended... I've been putting some of the tips regarding positivity, optimisism and making things happen by thinking big into practice and, whilst the results won't be immediately visible, it's certainly helping to get me back into a positive place.
A good day and a strong start to creating a life I love again..? I think so.
