It is all about perspective my friends. I have always known this. We all know this on some level. There are countless sayings meant to inspire a positive outlook, sayings about silver linings and glasses being half full. Life is far more rewarding if you embrace the positive. Sometimes we just need to be reminded.
Well guess what?! I get to remind you!!! Yup, I have been appointed a Positivity Ambassador by the California Milk Processor’s Board. What’s that you say, you’ve never heard of a Positivity Ambassador? You do not know what a Positivity Ambassador does? I’ll tell you what this Positivity Ambassador is going to do, I am going to remind you that the glass is indeed half full. I’ll remind you to look at all the positivity that surrounds you and I also get to tell you about milk and why I love it. As far as I’m concerned any day that ends with an ice cold glass of milk and some cookies was a positive day (I end most of my days with this ritual).
When I was approached about this campaign I was so excited because I really do love milk (I drink local organic milk every day) and I do my very best to have and encourage a positive attitude with a bit of humor. Humor speaks to my soul and keeps me positive.
I find that wisdom often comes in the guise of humor, that’s why I am thrilled to introduce you to the “Master of the Glass Half Full” (Maestro del Vaso Medio Lleno).
He is a riot! His inspirational journey from negativity to positivity is chronicled on Facebook. Aren’t we all on that journey? And like any modern day guru you can also follow him on Twitter. Here is the first peak I ever got of the Master of the Glass Half Full and he managed to make me smile within 14 seconds:
Now the Master of the Glass Half Full may make you laugh, but he is not a fool. This man is wise, profound, and somehow simple at the same time. He is also eminently quotable. For example,
“For every angry minute, you miss 60 seconds of happiness. Your daily glass of Positivism.”
You see what I’m talking about? Tell, me he’s not absolutely right with that observation.
What do you do to keep yourself positive? Share your tips with me and I’ll drink to your health with ice cold glass of milk (and some cookies on the side).
