Week 3/Day 21 ~ 21 days to a Positive Attitude (Saturday March 22)

Day 21 - Saturday

1) Every day write down 3 good things that happened that day for which you are grateful.

A. Up the repetitions in my required exercise to 30 reps today, and could still walk!

B. MAK's special team work out under the direction of our two demo team coordinators, did an awesome job at the workshop and at the Tri-County YMCA, as well as the SWAT and FIST teams under their directors.  It is awesome to see the school, its instructors and students perform so well when my contribution is doing 35 reps on exercise and learning to walk up stairs

C. I got to teach the 4 hour Teen Men's night at MAK. 

2) Journal about one positive blessing. One of the three, and explain why that good thing is better than the bad things that happened.

A couple of times a year we run a teen encounter group where our teens get together, play games, do crafts, and do a sensitivity exercise where they discover the diversity of each other's lives, skills and fears.  We do this so they can interact with each other, support each other and function in the world at large better as well.  We have not done one for several years, and today was the first for this group of teens, and it was Teen Men's Night ... 

I have not taught 4 hours since surgery, so I was experiencing a great degree of fear that I would not be able to keep it together for the whole event.

I planned it as I was asked to, and my family put the physical pieces together so I did not have to carry them, and both my wife and my daughter helped, so the event went off well, but it was still a blessing that I got to do it, that my wife and daughter helped so it happened, and that our teens rock.

3) Meditate and detach from multi-tasking, by focusing on scripture~ read it, research it, think about how it might impact your life.

Acts 1:4-5 (CEV) - "Don’t leave Jerusalem yet. Wait here for the Father to give you the Holy Spirit, just as I told you he has promised to do. John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."

It's interesting that at the end of John, Jesus breathed the spirit on his apostles, and here Jesus is telling them the will be "baptized with the Holy Spirit."  It seems there might be two different levels of Holy Spirit.  

4) One random act of kindness a week. You can do more. (Try one a day)

None today.

5) Pray. Lay down the hurtful things and gather strength.
