Show your good side

Yesterday, I caught a bus and then a train to and from a wonderful community event. On the train there was a poster displaying a poem promoting good behaviour while using public transport. A line of the poem I really liked was “show your good side”.

Show your good side: be positive; respect and be considerate of other people.

I believe showing our good side should be our intention everywhere, including on public transport 🙂

Turning clouds into silver lining – changing potential negatives into positives

Last night I experienced a liberating, fun and challenging class of air yoga. Air yoga is form of yoga using hammocks suspended from the ceiling.

My plan after class was to catch the train back into the city. As I walked to the train station I saw the train arrive and ran to meet it. Unfortunately, it departed just as I arrived to the platform and the next train wasn’t for another thirty minutes.

Instead of cursing and burdening my mind with negative thoughts about the situation, I took it as an opportunity to eat dinner at the nearby cafe strip. I enjoyed my fish and chips and was happy and back at the station ready for the next train 🙂
