Acceptable “B” Words for a BETTER You

cropped-cropped-twinklelights.jpgBonjour, Beautiful Blogosphere Buddies,

As I’ve BEEN thinking about how to make the world around me prettier and lovelier, I BEGAN thinking about how when we make changes in our lives, everything can become more positive. As I pondered this, I was getting dressed this morning. I had to run errands, and I wanted to wear something pretty and feel good about myself. Positive affirmations are real, and we need to accept our lives for what they are and be happy and contented with ourselves. I truly BELIEVE this.

I searched for “positive ‘B’ words,” and from the site Positive Words Research, the list BELOW popped up indicating positive words that start with that letter.

BEATIFY, BEATITUDE, BENEFICIAL, BENEFIT, BENEVOLENT, BELOVED, BEST, BETTER, BLESS – BLESSING – BLESSED, BLISS – BLISSFULNESS – BLISSFUL, BLOOM, BLOSSOM, BALANCE – BALANCED, BEAUTY – BEAUTIFUL – BEAUTIFULLY, BELONG – BELONGING, BOLDNESS, BRAVERY, BRILLIANCE – BRILLIANT, BLISS ON TAP, BEYOND FABULOUS, BIOPHILIA, BRIGHT, BRIGHTNESS, BALISTIC, BLASTING, BLAZING, BLINDING, BREATHTAKING, BUBBLING, BUSTING, BLISSCIPLINE, BUYANCY, BULLISHNESS, BRISKNESS, BUOYANCY, BREEZINESS, BRIO, BE EXTRAORDINARY, BE HAPPY, BEAUTIFY, BEING AT REST, BENEFACTOR, BENEFITS, BENEVOLENCE, BENEVOLENTLY, BENEVOLENTLY CHEERFUL STATE OF MIND, BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS, BEYOND, BEAUTY IN ALL THINGS, BEINGNESS, BELIEVABLE, BLOOD-BROTHERS, BOHEMIAN SOUL, BOHO-SOUL.

Those words are all poetic in their own right, for sure. They are indeed, positive words we can incorporate into our own lives. Then, there are everyday things that can make us feel good, too. So I decided to make my own list of “B” words that make me feel BETTER about myself. Below is what can put me in a positive mood.

It may seem like such a little thing, but my BIKE makes me very happy. BEING on my BIKE and riding it around offers a sense of freedom and allows me to feel like a kid again.
This BLANKET SCARF makes me happy for three reasons: the colors, that it's fashionable, and that my husband bought if for me. The BROOCH has been in my jewelry box since I was a fashion consultant. It's fun to BREAK IT OUT now and then.

These BLOOMS make are BEAUTIFUL. During the cold months when winter looms, flowers BRING sunshine into the house.
These BLOOMS make me happy. During the cold months when winter looms, flowers BRING sunshine into the house. And those of you who know me well or see me regularly know how I am most definitely BOOT-OBSESSED.
BLOGGING has become part of who I am. I cannot imagine my life without it now. And BANGLES, well, they're just fun.
BLOGGING has become part of who I am. I cannot imagine my life without it now. BEING a BLOGGER takes time, and it requires connecting all your social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. And BANGLES, well, they’re just fun. As for BLACK coffee, I prefer flavored coffees such as Hazelnut and Vanilla Creme.
BIG sunglasses protect your eyes and sure do help when you have dark circles under your eyes from too many late nights and not enough BEDREST.

BOOKS have had a positive influence on my life, both writing them and reading them. Hot off the press as of yesterday is a textbook that our BUSINESS Communication students will be using for our Event Planning course, written by my colleagues and me! We are very excited to finally see it in print after a year and a half of research and work on it. BASEBALL Girl is a fictional story I wrote about a girl who works in professional BASEBALL in BAY City, AND BENEATH The Mimosa Tree is a love story about two people who grow up next door to each other and fall in love…BUT something happens and they must see if forgiveness can BE found.
BANANA BREAD. Honestly, do I need to explain this???

I have a love-hate relationship with my BODY. I have a tough time losing weight, especially as I've aged, and sometimes I get lazy and don't exercise and eat properly. With all the BODY shaming that is going on constantly, especially over social media, I can BECOME so angry when I see people disparaged about their build or weight. For me, it's a constant BATTLE. BUT, here's me BEING positive and moving my body today. It takes effort, willpower, and time, BUT it can BE done.

Saw this gem at my parents' house and asked them if I could have a copy. When I look at this picture, one "B" word comes to mind: BLESSED.

There you have it. My positive “B” words. I’m curious to know what you would choose.
