I decided to do this project as a new writing challenge, and in the interest of coping with aging better. I have heard of the popular term, ''positive thinking'' and was already beginning to try to apply it systematically and conscientiously to my daily living when I decided to make it the them of a new project. I began posting blogs the day after my last birthday and I pledged to continue doing it until my next birthday for 365 days in a row. A process of reflection through a kind of journal writing thus began, and it has been deepening my understanding of positive thinking and proving it useful in a number of ways. By the 120th post, I had over 150 pages and thought you might like it if I began sharing this internal discussion with you, to make it part of a dialogue with readers. At the end of this quarter, I have achieved a few things. I completed 120 days of blogging, developed a deeper understanding of positive thinking, facilitated by a few relevant sources that have happened along the way, and arrived at eight steps to living positively. My personal growth has been pushed forward by this process, and I feel clearer about what I want out of life. It has helped me to make decisions and take action, thereby enhancing my sense of who I am, my self-confidence and direction in life. I hope this text helps you. Please review and give me feedback. There will be more to come in the next volumes of this year-long project.
