International Enthusiasm Week

By September 6, 2011

Follow me on:

What are you enthused about? September 1-10th is International Enthusiasm Week, so I think it's a great time to get excited about the good friends in your life. If you've got some clunkers in the friend department? Let it go for this week and focus on the positive ones. In fact, I think too often we give energy to the negative friends, because those are the ones that give us the most drama. We may even spend more time nurturing negative friendships, because we think that's what it takes to turn it around.

This week, put that notion aside. Call up a friend you really cherish, and show them some love. See how spending time with people that are good to you can make a difference in your life. I know, what a concept! Except that sometimes we get in the habit of feeding the negativity, when it's really better just to ignore it.

What are you enthused about this week when it comes to friendship? Have you met a new friend or reconnected with an old one? Share your thoughts.
