What are you building?

I'm like most men--I enjoy finding some project to do around our farm so I can go to the hardware store and look at the power tools and other important things I need. One time I was building a wooden fence with a couple of gates. Of course that meant a trip to the store to look at hinges and latches.

Now I'm by no means an expert on hinges which means I was forced to do what most of us men dread doing--ask for help. The associate made it easy on me though. He offered. I figured it was less disgraceful that way.

So I tell him what I'm doing, give him the dimensions of the gate, and pick up a hefty size set of hinges and say, "I guess I need something this big."

"Oh no sir, Dr. Joey," he says. "You can use something much smaller than that. Small hinges swing big doors."

That's true about making a positive life, too. You probably think you have to do something huge during the holidays to be positive. Not really. Just change a small habit despite your hectic schedule and watch as your life swings better.

Listen to your life for what that small habit might be and make a positive life.

Do you look up?

I planted some pansies in a flower garden one fall. They really started blooming a couple of weeks after I stuck them in the ground. I was excited because they looked so great. And I mentioned them to my wife, asking her, "Hey! What do you think about those pansies?"

And she said, "Well, I really haven't noticed. When I walk by them, my head must be down. I must be thinking about something else."

Now she walks by those flowers beds numerous times each day taking the horses to and from the barn. It's not a matter of not having an opportunity to see them. It's more about what she's looking for.

You see what you're looking for. If you keep your head down in life, you miss the beauty blooming all around you that's planted for your enjoyment. If you look up, your perspective broadens from your own thinking to experience what's blooming all around you.

I know this time of year is really busy, but look up today as you Live Positive and Work Positive. And enjoy the world around you.
