P is for Positive

Well, looks like Q is gone….blogger went down yesterday and took away posts. Unsure if it will be back, but I did write it, honest. q was for quiet. shhhh, ‘nuf said.

Anyways, on to the letter P. P is for Positive. Pollyanna-esque, perfectly preposterously, passionately positive is a part of my personality…..under the surface. Truth is, I can be cynical with the rest of ya’ll, sarcastic and hate on myself on occasion….but ultimately, I believe everything works out for the best. I see the sunny side of things and believe the best in people, often to my detriment…
A couple of years ago, I was thrown into a potentially crushing situation….but refused to “face facts”  instead I retreated into a new life…..  

A favorite quote from Robert Louis Stevenson
 Life is not a matter of having good cards, 
but of playing a poor hand well.

La, la, la…..I can’t hear you….. (I’m too busy dreaming up something new) ……la, la, la…..jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…la, la, la*…

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. You don’t have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes. Jim Rohn

  1. Six years ago, I suddenly and unexpectedly lost my beloved husband. The quote you sited in this post puts into words the path I eventually took. It was either that or die from the pain of grief. I had a visit from my husband (in a dream) several months after he passed away and in it he said "If you choose life, good things will happen to you" I chose life and I chose to be happy. I am remarried to a wonderful man and I am exceedingly happy. I will always love my late husband for the roadmap to happiness he gave me.

  2. That's a real shame. I couldn't comment on Q because Blogger was having problems. Just went to comment now, after having left the page open all day, and it came up with an error. Hope you get the post back.

  3. Cyndi, thanks for sharing such a bittersweet story. We are constantly being given choices, that is so true. &Kerri and Tony ~THANKS for the verification~ I did have a Q, I did, I did. :)
