a vacation state of mind
lessons learned from a week away

happy anniversary, positively present!


"That first peak is the best place to pause and look back,
to see if you took the easiest route, to learn the lessons from the first climb.
It is the best place to examine the terrain ahead to change your plans and goals,
to take a deep breath and begin climbing again."

Michael Johnson


Today is the six month anniversary of Positively Present. It was only six short months ago that I was sitting up in bed in the middle of the night on Valentine's Day, creating my very first blog post. Every post I've written since then has taught me so much about myself and about the world and I couldn't be happier that Positively Present has made it this far. I love writing and sharing my thoughts with you and it means so, so much to me that you actually read what I write and that so many of you contribute via your comments and emails. Thank you for being such a big part of my journey towards positivity and happiness. I know I wouldn't be where I am today without all of the amazing support of readers like you.

While I'm off in England vacationing and celebrating, I'd love it if you could take a moment to give me your feedback on Positively Present. I've created a brief, 10 question survey for my readers and it would mean a lot to me if you could take a few minutes and let me know what you think about Positively Present. The blog has been an amazing experience for me and I want it to be an amazing experience for you too. I can't wait to return and hear what all of you have to say about the blog. If you can think of any other issues you'd like to talk about that aren't brought up in the survey, please feel free to leave me comments in the comments section.
