I decided to partake in a week long challenge that entails viewing and reacting positively in all situations. I have agreed to not judge, not compound problems and to emulate people who consistently display positivity.

I began on 8-1 and on 8-8 my official week will end. At that point I am going to write an essay and submit it to the challenger (a counselor here in prison) for review.

I issue this challenge to you as well. Make an intention to be positive no matter what. Go ahead and try and every time you have to tell yourself to be positive in this circumstance, document it so you can see just how often you react negatively.

With Love
Ruth Utnage
