Spreading positivity is the new car game

Good morning from the road and Merry Christmas Eve!

Are you done with your shopping? We are just short a bottle of champagne for our lovely hosts that we are planning to bunk in with once we arrive at New Jersey for the holidays. So anxious. Our road trip would include various stops and if you are planning to join us closely in our journey, follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/kiran_) and tweet with hashtag #positivityrocks.

We left Orlando around 5:30pm. It was dark and gloomy weather but the traffic was surprisingly smooth. Touchwood ;) Won’t want to jinx any of that.

I first thought we could kill some time by playing car games such as license plate. It was way too dark for that. And how long can we listen to songs? Yeah, we are one of those people.

The Hubs was pretty relaxed with all the driving. I was getting so bored. I took out some Post-It (sticky) notes and started scribbling away. Why?

Because I am planning to spread positivity… one post-it note at a time.

We would be traveling with a total distance of 1,050 miles (1 way) from Orlando to New Jersey. With numerous stops in between, I am leaving Post-It notes at public places. Long road trip’s are never easy, but you can always turn it into a fun and adventurous activity. Why post-its? Well, if you are unaware of OperationBeautiful.com‘s initiatives to encourage positive body image and eliminate fat talk, it’s never too late.

Caitlin Boyle is the founder and creator behind this beautiful and great initiative. I have had the pleasure of meeting her during our Chevy Girls on the Go promotion. Alas, she and the Hubs had to move all the way to Charlotte. Nonetheless, she started a great movement that supports my belief in cheering for positivity. And you can too as well. If you want to end negative self talk for yourself, loved ones or even a stranger, click here and learn how you can be a part of this wonderful mission. Here are my first two notes from last night :)

Left these notes at public restrooms between Orlando and Walterboro! I hope these notes made you smile, stranger :D and ignore that hideous hand writing that has been crippled by technology.

Off to have some breakfast and we would be on the road again. Catch up with you all soon. Merry Christmas Eve :)

What are your favorite method or ways to spread positivity?

For me, my favorite method of spreading positivity is by simply smiling to different people I know. Simple but effective – most of the time. :)

Kelvin,
I love your take on the simplicity approach towards spreading positivity. A smile goes a long way. When I moved to US, I had a different impression about Americans. But as time flew by, I’ve grown to love and appreciate their friendliness :)

I hope you had a great time and a safe trip back from the trip by now, Kiran. :) What a delightful way to show positiveness. Well for me, probably like Kevin with a smile or sending text messages to friends with encouraging quotes. For online friends, maybe a tweet, a visit to their blog with a little comment to wish them a lovely new year ahead!

Ching Ya,
We had a fabulous time and break from the online world, if you know what I mean :) I agree with you that Social Networking does evoke and promote positivity with a simple tweet and blog comment :) An interesting perspective.
