“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.”

Thank you for these 9 years!NOTE: The anniversary offer is now over.

The Positivity Blog is now 9 years old.

That’s kinda crazy for me to think about. It’s been almost a decade since I started this website and the time has mostly just zipped by.

This past year has been a really good one. Many new people have found the website and the newsletter has grown a lot.

I’ve created my latest program – The Stop Procrastinating Now Course – and it’s been a really popular one.

This year has also been a time of more supportive emails and blog comments than I can count.

So I want to thank you so much for reading, for your uplifting support, for passing along something you read and liked to a friend, for the helpful criticism and for sharing your own wonderful and useful insights on the things I write about.

And I want to do something fun to celebrate this anniversary and to thank you for all your kindness over this past year.
