Cheer Up Ye Saints of God, there’s nothing to Worry About, (Everyone on the Chorus)

June 4, 2014


It was a beautiful morning and as I walked toward my Smart Car I pushed the magic button that would retract the roof.  Really, what’s the sense of having a convertible roof that you can open with a button if you never open it with the button?  And as the roof began to open a horrible screeching sound started and my first thought was “Great, just what I need.” It had been that type of week….. I mean month. And then the noise stopped and I realized that my neighbour was using a pressure washer. 
And I immediately asked myself, “Why had I defaulted to the negative?”  I consider myself to have a fairly positive outlook as I’m the kid still digging for the pony. And yet I have discovered that lately I have been allowing my circumstances to dictate how I view life. And that’s not the person I want to be. 
And so I am choosing to embrace the positive, notice that I said choosing, because I believe, at least in my case, I have the ability to make that choice.
And really, it’s no harder to look for the positive in life rather than the negative.  So why not try it and let me know who it turns out.         Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
