Saturday Quote


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 
Pollyanna.

I used to even belittle people
by  calling them a Pollyanna
As in
someone who only saw the good in everything.
And
was missing reality.

In my youth I thought I was so much wiser than
silly  Pollyanna.
Her bubbling happiness and joy
and
 ability to see the good in the worst
bothered me to no end.

Now
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
and
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
and
now I realize
the only thing I can truly control
is how I choose to see my life
and 
how I 
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
to 
pray
that I may learn and grow from the situation.
and 
when 
I do
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
and
learn to
See the Blessings In Everything.

Who knew I would grow up 
to see
Pollyanna had it right the whole time.


As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  2. Yes very wise but sometimes following circumstances if your life and not living in such a marvellous sunny country, it is very difficult to see the best of the things in my life. Very often ill, I cannot share your wise thinkings dear Tamera. Maybe from time to time.....
    The philosophy of seeing the good everywhere is absolutely what I would like to practice.
    I will try......
    All the best
