I watch too much The West Wing because this story came straight outta Leo McGarry’s mouth!
Why am I doing this – the bigger question – because I have a message
Mood – how you feel, the emotion, the umbrella covering your actions, speech, thoughts
Mindset – thoughts and ideas going along with the mood. Eg depressed might have mindset of too stupid to deal with this, going to go lay in bed and watch netflix til I die
Motivation – what can help turn them around to be happier, more productive, feel more in control. All about the why – why do you want to do that, why is doing that so important to you
Hi, I’m Kriss, and I’m the Positivity Powerhouse.
What’s a Positivity Powerhouse? I can tell you what it’s not. It’s not a fakey-schmakey overbleached smile telling you it’s all going to be ok.
It’s not fiddling while life burns down around your ears.
And it’s not Insta-perfect fake positivity where nothing’s ever wrong and everything’s just super, thanks for asking!
A Positivity Powerhouse can use language to flip-turn a situation upside down.
A Positivity Powerhouse has an awesome sense of humor and can use it to laugh at herself.
A Positivity Powerhouse knows how to give motivational kicks in the ass without them being condescending or dismissive.
A Positivity Powerhouse shares generously despite anxiety, depression, panic, or mania, because she knows she will inspire others.
So I’m the Positivity Powerhouse.
Helping people tilt their head sideways, squint their eyes, and then look at their situation is a necessity.
Showing folks the absurdity that runs through everything in life is, so they can learn to laugh at themselves is, too.
So is sounding my barbaric YAWP over the rooftops of the world.
And searching for the ananda – the joy – in everything is, too.
So are Netflix breaks.
Flamingos all over my room.
I will do no harm, but take no shit.
I will dare greatly and give no fucks.
So mote it be.
But at the end of the day, breeding new Positivity Powerhouses is all that really matters.
