I think this Lighting Up the Blogosphere thing really works. Put a positive message out there and see what happens.

Life has been good. Since I’ve been Lighting Up the Blogosphere… Our son got a new job that will pay him more money and give him more time with his family. Our daughter got goats. Seriously. She and her husband recently bought a small ranch and she really wanted goats. So now they have goats. (They also went on a three-day cruise, but I think she’s more excited about the goats.) My husband, who has had health issues over the past few years, is now testing within the normal range for everything! I’m finally in the groove and on the home-stretch with my final edit of The Bewitching Hour and I’ve managed to get to the next level with my workouts. (I burned 750 calories in an hour on the treadmill and didn’t die.) True, hard work and perserverance is what helps you meet your goals, but sending out good thoughts and focusing on what you can do rather than what you can’t do, opens the door to life’s possibilities.
Keeping this in mind, I’ve decided that I will not grumble about the heat, (so far our highest temp is 113) the price of gas or the parrot poop I have to clean up. When negative campaigning or rhetoric comes on, I’m turning off the TV. And when we have our next haboob, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haboob I won’t gripe about the dirt and dust that gets everywhere. I’ll just remind myself that it could be worse, turn on the pool pump and get out my microfiber dust cloth.
Okay, so maybe my microfiber dust cloth isn’t going to do much good but I’d still rather have a haboob than a hurricane, tornado or earthquake.
There are all kinds of clichés about staying positive. I won’t list them because you’ve heard them before, (which, obviously, is why they’re clichés) but the truth is, keeping a positive attitude can change your life and the lives of those around you. So think good thoughts, send them out into the Universe…
And have a great week!!!
