Time for SPARKS on a Monday – a blog hop Annie of McGuffy’s Reader is hosting that has a goal of starting our week off with some inspiration – lighting up the corners of dark days – giving power to the positive things around us…….by sharing an inspirational quote, thought, photo and putting it “out there” for everyone to think about too! Thank you Annie for giving us all a forum for sharing some inspiration. Want to join us? Click on Annie’s badge above and sign up on the Linky form……….
It’s interesting but when I was looking for something that would be a good SPARK today, I found a quote by a former President that REALLY, TRULY, is “me”………..those who know me know I am always touting “POSITIVITY”……..looking at the positive side of anything rather than the negative side. Apparently our former President Abraham Lincoln was a fan of positivity too. Since today is President’s Day in the US, I just knew it was the right one for me to share today…………….
That’s positivity alright…………as far back as I can remember I have believed that so many things are effected by our outlook – are we looking for something to complain about or are we thinking of ways to make that thing better? Are we complaining because it’s raining outside or are we remembering that the rain helps keep our world green and beautiful? Seems simple but I have to admit that I know a lot of people who DWELL in the negative. Not me. Count me on Abe’s side!
Happy Positive Monday!
