#writing challenge in English

For my self, positive people include 2 aspects: positive thinking and positive action. 

Positive thinking is the way that we recognize and evaluate things, problems in a good way. For example, when my 5 - year - old daughter broke the glass just because she tried to bring me water. In that case, I ignored the full piece of glass and water splattered on the floor, I smiled happily with her love. Instead of complaining, I cleaned the floor with my lovely daughter and we had fun moments together. It was a positive action for that situation. With the problems of work and daily life I always analyze to find the cause, thereby bringing out the proper solution. It is obviously an effective method. However, in order to avoid problems that need to be solved, I always plan for everything in my life and take the initiative in every situation. Besides, I also make myself more useful by giving away. I help free young peole through start - up projects with my experience in finance, accouting and business analysis. Every day, before falling asleep or waking up every morning, I silently thanked the beautiful life for giving me many things and also giving me the oppotunities to give away.

One important thing is that you can not maintain positive thinking with a weak body. Therefore, ensuring a healthy body is very essential. Besides using healthy food, you need to workout properly. Not only taking time for work, but I also spend time for my family and studying as well as consulting time for start - up projects as talked above, so I do not have enough time to go to the gym. So I exercise in my own way. I take every chance to walk, such as: instead of using the elevator, I will take the stairs; Instead of ordering food online, I get up early, breath in fresh air and walk to the supermarket in the early morning sun. I do not hire the house helper. I do housework by myself (of course with the help of some household appliances). Doing housework makes me active and this helps me get better. 

After all, I love myself. I do not hesitate to shop for beautiful clothes, beautiful makeup and partying with real friends, self-awarded a day just to enjoy a favourite book or movie...

All of these things make me happy and nurture the positive in my thinking. That's how I practice daily to become a positive person.

Today is the first day of my 100 - day English writing challenge. Definitely not perfect, but there is no problem, right?
Let's start!

Topic 1: Many people aim to achieve a balance between work and life, but few people achieve. What are the causes and how to overcome the problem?
Nowadays, people aware clearly that unbalancing between work and life is the serious problem in the modern society. In this essay I would like to bring out some ideas about the reason and the way that
helps us to avoid this matter based on my personal opinion.

Firstly, we easily realize that the development of economy as well as technology empowers us to have diversified choices for life. Expecting to possess high quality material and service is our  tendency that makes us always to try our best to achieve. We know that the high quality we chose, the high cost we have to pay. This is the radical that we have to spend more time for working to earn money in order to supply our demands instead of relaxing.

Secondly, the fast development of society also requires the higher quality of labor resources. So, not only spending more time for working, but we also have to improve our knowledge to meet job’s demands. If we are not better than the others, we will not have opportunity of promotion as well as ability to earn much money. That is reason why instead of returning our home, we decide to go to a university for the second degree or a foreign language center to enhance language skills, etc…

After the whole day, we go back home total exhaustedly when it is very late. Of course we almost have not enough energy to enjoy with our family. It makes the time for family is more and more decreasing in both quantity and quality.

In my opinion, to solve this problem, we must think seriously about the length of our life. Let listening to the persons who had spoken when they did not have much time to live. There was a common point that they all were regretful because they had not spent more time for their family.

Finally, so short is the life that we can not do everything. We must find the way which is suitable for each other by reducing working time as well as increasing family time to achieve the balance in our life./.
