The Positivity Pause Podcast Episode 3: The Island of Positivity – An Origin Story

Hey there Positivity Posse!

You might be wondering, where did the island of positivity come from and who are the Positivity Posse? 

The island of positivity is the home of my girl, super surgeon that I mentioned in the previous blog, Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo.

I conceived of her 15 years ago and published the first book eight years ago. It was really important to me to empower young girls and kids of color to believe in themselves, that it needed to be done from a perspective of "I can!", and to remind them that it is possible to pursue your greatest dreams.

It was obvious to me that this message had to be done from a platform of positivity, and so the Island of Positivity was born. 

I love the island life. I love the beach. I love the water. I love the promise of the hot sun, the birds chirping, the sea breezes blowing against the coconut palm trees...

The Island of Positivity is where you can remember that not even the sky is the limit...

One thing I really enjoy doing is creating a way that we can take complex concepts and use real world everyday experiences to simplify them. The island of positivity is one of the ways that I have been able to do this work...

So on this pause, I really want you to know that Island of Positivity is a mental construct.

It is not only a place that you can create physically around you, but it is a place that lives within you and lives within your mind.

You have the power to create your own island of positivity. Where you can take the opportunity to get away, to take a break, to transport yourself, and to press the pause button on all of the things that challenge you.

You can literally come to this place that allows you to shift a perspective, to take the things that you might be seeing as challenges, and to figure out how you are going to construct them in a way that serves you.



"You have the power to create your own Island of Positivity..."



The Island of Positivity allows you to recharge, to take some deep breaths and to refuel. It allows you to reset.

Sometimes when you're running, running, Helter-skelter or frenzied, you just need to press a reset button to get to zero.

Your #PositivityPause today is just an opportunity to construct your mental Island of Positivity.

I'll leave you with this question: What does your Island look like for you? 

Remember: Not even the sky is the limit!
