Some background from Kerry, the founder of Let’s be Positive.
The idea for Let’s be Positive began in 2016, when I took part in a 30-day challenge. I thought it would be 30 days of sit ups and fitness challenges, but when the first task was to download Audible and listen to a self-help book, I realised I hadn’t actually read up before I signed up!
I had never read or listened to a self-help book before and, to be honest, it had never really appealed to me. I thought of myself as a pretty positive person, plus I’d had therapy in my 20s which had given me lots of coping tools for if I did feel low, so I thought I had it sussed.
However, I knew within 5 minutes of listening that this could really change my life (my first book was You are Badass by Jen Sincero in case you’re interested!) – even though I hadn’t known I wanted this change until that moment.
As I made my way through one book after another and continued to complete various tasks set in the challenge, I started to realise the power of being surrounded by positivity.
One topic that often popped up was affirmations. I had never even heard of affirmations and I couldn’t get my head around the fact you should say nice things to yourself – I actually thought it was a bit weird. But I decided to give it a go, and one phrase that always crept into my mind was “Let’s be positive.” It was my answer to everything. Woke up tired? Let’s be positive. Bad day with work? Let’s be positive. Worried about the kids? Let’s be positive. Suffering with Mum Guilt? Let’s be positive. Feeling a bit insecure? Let’s be positive. It genuinely seemed to nip my negative thoughts in the bud (not always of course – it’s not really possible to feel on cloud nine all of the time!).
I also started to see how motivational quotes could lift me up. How being around positive people would inspire me. How wearing a bright colour could put me a better frame of mind. And I wanted to share these realisations. I wanted others to be surrounded by positivity. I wanted people to feel good.
And that’s how Let’s be Positive was born! Our mission statement is simple…
“To encourage a sense of joy and wellbeing.”
