For Christmas 2019, I asked for an LED letter board. I thought it would be fun to have a quote or saying lit up for my family to see. My goal was to change the board every week with a new saying. I will admit that in one year there were only 29 new messages, but I did take the time to think about what I would post. And every time I put a new saying up, I would smile as I took a photo of it. I would also repeat it as I walked by the board almost inhaling the message.
The location of the board is at the entrance of our home so others would see it as well. As they entered our home, they would read it aloud. As they left our home, it would again catch their eye. And hopefully, it let a bit of positivity cross their minds.
Some were amusing like “I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS” & “30 DAYS OF FAMILY TIME” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some were inspired by holidays like “THANKFUL, GRATEFUL, & BLESSED” for Thanksgiving and “DON’T SPEND THE NEW YEAR DOING THE SAME STUFF”. But the others focused on being grateful, being positive, being generous, and being the best you could be.
I think we should all be gently reminded to create a mantra. Perhaps you can make it your cell phone’s screen saver or set a daily reminder to pop up at a certain time every day. ‘POSITIVITY IS A CHOICE”.
