Positive Thinking takes conscious effort as you retrain your mind to minimize negativity. Trying to see good in everything and everyone can be a struggle some days so I want to highlight small moments of positivity that I see as I live day to day. These moments are featured as "Heart Smiles".
My regular 9-5 job is as a trainer for behavioral health agencies, I teach on a variety of topics from understanding autism to performance management. One of my most requested classes are those on basic computer skills as many of the staff at my primary facility have little or no computer knowledge. These classes always make me smile as I watch people start out so intimidated by computers that they barely want to touch the mouse then they leave a few classes later smiling happily after they've sent their first email. Of all the training courses I've taught over the past 10+ years these computer classes have yielded the most immediate results of any other. When I think about the things they will be able to do just by learning how to use computers it makes me so excited for them. Now, people who were previously limited to their surroundings have the whole world at their fingertips. So my heart smiles...
