“I’m Bringing Politeness Back”

If Justin Timberlake sang about politeness instead of sexiness, I think there would be a distinct and noticeable shift in the behavior of young girls ages 12-18. Just saying.

Happy Wellness Wednesday! I’ve been working on a series of videos on my YouTube channel called “Living Up To Our Own Expectations,” the premise being this: instead of silently judging others for their short-comings, we can turn that energy around and focus it in a positive way on ourselves, allowing us to grow into the kinds of people we’d like to become. I’ve slowly been churning these videos out for over a year now, and I’d like to share the inaugural video with you today. The following video contains a brief explanation of the series, and a whole lot about the importance of politeness in today’s culture.

I’ve only created five videos in the series so far, and I’m looking to post another one by the end of October. Have a topic you think should be talked about? Toss it my way in the comments below, because sharing is caring. 🙂

    Hey girl! Thanks for your comments on my blog. I’m wondering if you’d like to guest vlog on the topic of, well, vlogging. 🙂 Let me know. eatmovewriteATyahoo.

  2. Great V-Post … especially the part about each of us wanting to be better at being ourselves. Doug Carter once said, “It isn’t what you are doing that gets you the results you want … it is WHO you are BEING while you are doing those things that gets you the results.” See the article link for my post on BE-DO-HAVE

    Keep striving to BE even a greater inspiration (you’re already doing a great job), mj.
