You may think that I’m being a little too Pollyanna-ish, don’t leave just yet, hear me out. It truly astounds me that we have immense opportunities at our fingertips. We have the freedom to change what we’re doing and do something else or do multiple new things at a time. We can go back to school, learn to sew, bake or cook and we can start a new blog anytime. It’s truly mind blowing if you think about it.
It also amazes me at the diverse creativity and opinions people have and how far they'll go in order to express them. I have learned so much from others opinions, experiences and how they are so willing to share with amazing detail. I want to thank each and every person for sharing their invaluable information that they worked so hard to research and compile.
It encourages me when I see how much compassion people have for one another and the risks and the sacrifices they make in helping each other out. People are good.
We are so inundated with negative news that I think we lose sight of that. For instance, the people who helped out the victims of Superstorm Sandy, the military who fight for our freedom, the stranger who pulled a baby to safety from a wrecked car, the person who opens a door for the elderly or those with special needs and don't forget about those who Pay it Forward. God created people to be helpers and encouragers; we need each other.
We also have choices, you can choose to see the positive or negative in any situation. I would like to encourage you to take the high road and opt for the positive. It’s not always easy, but well worth it.
Smile; it may be the only smile someone sees all day!
