What is SPARK on Monday???? If you don’t know what posting a SPARK is all about, here’s the history! SPARKS is a Monday tradition – how did it start and what IS IT? “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own. Why? Because sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort. Please feel free to post your own SPARK on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way.
I always enjoy looking for what I want to call my SPARK for the week……….this week I thought it should be about starting off a new year. I found two thoughts that I liked – for different reasons……..but with a SMILE on my face, I’ll present them both to you and see what YOU think…….ready?
Well, sorry about that but I quite liked both of these…………….The “chill pill” thing is something people used to say years ago when they were around someone who might be a little TOO excited, TOO anxious, TOO loud, TOO TOO TOO “anything” ! I do kind of think the Minion in the poster just might be right though – maybe we ALL need a chill pill (but promise me you won’t choke on it!).
Maxine shoots from the hip – she “calls ’em the way she sees ’em” and pulls no punches. That’s why I like her. What she’s saying in this poster might actually be close to how I feel – even as an optimist – I’m not sure I see a “good” year ahead so you might just say I have a NEW attitude and it might not be a GOOD attitude…..I’m reserving judgment on that I’m afraid. It’s starting out looking a bit too much like LAST year if you know what I mean. Maybe we’ll turn that around…….time will tell.
SO there you have it – two interesting SPARKS……………I’m in a wait and see frame of mind. I hope I don’t have to wait too long……….I’m as impatient as the next person to see some changes this year in a lot of ways. Fingers crossed.
