Day 282 in my attitude adjustment, as I try to grow, while I wait to meet up with Mickey Mouse at Magic Kingdom in October
Today my plan was to get up and go to church. I planned to open my heart to whatever God had for me there; whatever healing, whatever mercy, whatever message, whatever. I went; God showed up, as he promises to do every time. I am feeling blessed.
I want to share a saying I saw on FaceBook and Pinterest today: “I really just want to be the warm yellow light that pours out all over everyone I love.” It is credited to Melissa Garcia from her Pinterest site called Quotes and Things. Check it out. I looked at her Pinterest site for 20 seconds and I was hooked. I am now a follower.
“I really just want to be the warm yellow light that pours out all over everyone I love.” I love this! I hope and pray to be that for those I love. I have some GREAT examples in my life: my brother Gene and his lovely wife Patsy, my cousin Lyn, my daughter Emi, my friend Shelly and many more. They have a gift for seeing the positive side of things, of seeing the good beyond the bad. They are real silver lining, glass half-full people in my life and I am so grateful for them!
I know there are those who would say, “What a Pollyanna attitude! What a bunch of Pollyannas!” Have you every seen the Disney movie, Pollyanna? It’s such a great portrait of what a positive attitude can do in life. Here’s what Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has to say about it: “A young girl comes to an embittered town and confronts its attitude with her determination to see the best in life.” Holy wah! Is that cool, or what? The movie has a great cast including: Hayley Mills, Jane Wyman and Richard Egan. Check it out, if you can find it. I love it, and will watch it again soon.
So I have decided to own being a Pollyanna. I am going to revel in it. I am going to wallow in it. From now on, I choose to believe the best about people and about situations. God can use every person and every situation to His glory. I claim it, and I believe it.
Jump on this bandwagon with me, dear readers. Let’s let God be the light that shines through us to others. Woop woop!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
