This year my new years resolutions were the normal:
Cut out Soda
Then I had a few very personal ones:
speak at a event/meeting about blogging
help small businesses get online for less than $400
Delete The Negative
So far I have:
Cut out Soda, spoke at TWO events/meetings about blogging, in the process of helping two small businesses get online and Deleting The Negative.
I think that is the best start on News Year’s Resolutions ever for me but I really wanted to to talk to you today about the Delete The Negative one.
This is important to me.
The rule in my life is:
Even if you could help me make 1 million dollars or gain 1,000 new followers for the blog-if you are a negative person then you are not allowed in my space.
I started by not taking calls from a certain person who wasn’t really a friend and would only call to complain.
Then I went on facebook and I ‘hid’ the status updates from about 25 people who only complained or posted a lot of negative political or religious status updates. (and no I did not hide the ones from people who opposed my view-I hid quite a few that were posting from my point of view). I did not un-friend them because that would create a negative space when they realized I was no longer a facebook friend but I hid their status because I don’t need to see all of that in my news feed when i just want to log in to see a cute baby picture or check my Creative Kristi page.
I also try really hard to keep my negative nancy days to a minimum-at least publicly. I don’t share those things online anymore if I can help it.
I stopped working with a few bloggers that were negative.
I wanted to share with you how I keep this idea in the front of my mind:
I ask myself each day “Where will you be a year from now?”
It’s easy to ask myself that because it greets me when I turn on my computer
So I decided to create a desktop background to share with you.
