(There was a fire in the desert west of us. The smoky haze made the sky so beautiful.)
Well, the sun DID come out today!
And, it was a great day.
I was visiting with my mom this afternoon, talking about how I felt physically, emotionally, etc.
She said, among many other things,
"Well, Netty, I haven't heard you sound this negative in a LONG time."
She didn't say it to hurt my feelings.
She loves me.
She has genuine sympathy for my discomfort.
BUT, it got me thinking.
There really IS so much good all around me.
Sometimes when I'm hurting or consumed by my own problems,
I fail to look outside myself.
I lost perspective and needed a gentle reminder.
I'm starting a "power of positive thinking" workshop for myself.
Time to get that glass half-full again.
So, here we go.
I'm pretty excited:).
