I have learned as I have gotten older
that my life changes
depending on where and how I set my intentions.
In my youth
one of my very least favorite Disney movie was
I used to even belittle people
by calling them a Pollyanna
someone who only saw the good in everything.
was missing reality.
In my youth I thought I was so much wiser than
Her bubbling happiness and joy
ability to see the good in the worst
bothered me to no end.
all these decades later
I can see her wisdom.
So much of our life
is how we choose to view it.
In my youth
I believed I could control my life
through working really, really hard
doing the right things
(Not that I always did by any means
but at least I thought I could get back on track
by excessive effort).
The years have tempered me
now I realize
the only thing I can truly control
is how I choose to see my life
respond to what happens in my life.
So it is with decided intention
that I choose daily
to focus on
the beauty and the good in my life.
I choose when hard times come
that I may learn and grow from the situation.
to be able to share any wisdom I may have garnered form
along the journey of growing my soul.
For me it is a daily
regearing with intention
to focus on the good
See the Blessings In Everything.
Who knew I would grow up
Pollyanna had it right the whole time.
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
