Surviving the unwanted divorce

The “Positive Spin” – – –

on March 24, 2015

I recently posted about some disappointments I’ve had in people I considered good  friends, and how much that can hurt and deflate you.  Since some of my followers are people that I see on a regular basis, I received questions of concern and curiosity.  Not only is it great to know people do read what I occasionally send out, but heart warming to realize that there are still many who care and hope for the best for me.

While I wish that everything that I share could be positive, sometimes there are things that I send you to be thought provoking; then there are the things that cause my heart sorrow and I just need to get it off my chest during my most alone times.

I need look no further for a positive spin on the disappointments in life than this quote from President John F Kennedy who knew the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows.

“Change is the law of life.  And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future”

While I’m pretty sure this statement had little to do with my feeling down and disappointed, and everything to do with our great nation’s future back in the early 60’s, it still rings true for “life in general”!  I’ve written before about the difficulty in driving “forward” if all you do is look in “the rear view mirror”.

This is just another way of saying it.  Such an easy concept, and such a hard thing to put into practice.  Instead of a “New Year’s Resolution” – maybe the thing I do is have a resolution every day to try to be more positive.  Look for the things you can add to your life to make yourself a better, brighter and happier person, and walk away from the things – or people – who drag you down.

Rose colored glasses and glass “half full” are my mantras of the day . . . what are yours?
