Today’s post is a special one for me because I’m getting to share a value that means so much to me- and that’s positivity! I’ve always been a “glass half full” kind of girl, and looking on the bright side of things is second nature to me. (I even have a quote that hangs in my office at work that says “No one has every hurt their eyes looking on the bright side of things!”) 🙂 But even though positivity is kind ingrained in my DNA, I’m hyper-aware that the things we take in (social media, TV, books, etc) can take a toll on that outlook and effect ours. So I love sprinkling my life with positive reminders and affirmations that help remind my off all the good and the positives in the world!
So I was super excited to partner with Dayspring to share Candace Cameron Bure’s new line of tees – featuring my favorite phrase “Don’t throw shade.” Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Woah! Talk about a culture shift! In a world where gossip prevails (we have whole magazines devoted to it!) – this tee is a reminder that if it doesn’t build someone up or encourage them, don’t say it! Spreading positivity starts with making a conscious choice to do & speak better to others.
Now, that’s not to saw this is an easy feat! It’s a daily and sometimes minute-to-minute task to make these decisions and to stick with positivity- but oh man the impact that it has on those around you!! So let’s build each other up, encourage each other, and be the light in this world! 🙂 XO
