Welcome! This is the first post in my new weekly blog feature which I have called Postive Vibes. It will be a weekly roundup of my thoughts and experiences of the week. Positive Vibes will comprise a variety of chillax music, gems, quotes and brief reflections on life in general. Each Positive Vibes post will fit under the positive, compassionate living theme.
Music Corner 🎼🎸🎷
With this in mind, my chillax music choice this week comes from the one and only Gregory Porter, and is titled Hey Laura. It is already on my playlist which is on the RnB, Soul and Jazz blog page: https://nicholemcintosh.wordpress.com/menu/rnb/
Listen here: Hey Laura by Gregory Porter
My husband is the biggest Gregory Porter fan and so this song has been on repeat on our iPod for a while now. Although, I’m a reggae connoisseur, I was exposed to many genres of music growing up in Jamaica. I must admit that Gregory Porter is simply amazing and I’m now a big fan. Have a listen and you may very well be his next fan. Captivating stuff!
What a Gem!💎
I’m always mining African proverbs from my wise ancestors, so I’ll share these from time to time in my Positive Vibes posts. I mined this gem this week and thought you’d like it too.
Challenge of the week: ‘Staying positive and confident’💪
This is where I’ll share with you how I managed to overcome a challenge in the past week. This week, I managed to stay calm even when I felt like screaming. I am in a new post at work and so I’m learning something new everyday. I managed to keep my composure even when I was hearing jargon-filled conversations that made me feel that everyone else knew what they were talking about except me. I had the presence of mind to take a deep breath and remind myself that I know more than I don’t and what I don’t know today, I’ll learn. No one is an expert on all things. Having the confidence to say, ‘I’m not sure but I’ll find out and get back to you’ is a perfectly reasonable response.
This week, I also managed to be dignified in my responses to others and ensured that I greeted everyone with a smile. Manners maketh the man. It costs nothing and yet the benefits are priceless. I love these three little fellas 🙉🙈🙊and their reminder to neither hear, see or say any evil.😂
Reflections of the week🤔
As I reflect on the week that was, I am feeling happy to be alive and blessed to be able to share my world with so many people. It makes life worth living when you give back to others in any way you can. Give priceless things like your time, your attention, your love, your smile. Give you!
