Think Positive

Wherever we awake

Everyday we have a choice

Look on the bright side


I have the little saying “Positive Thinking Area” which I clipped it out of a magazine long ago, hanging in the hallway of my home, and often times my eyes just happen to fall upon it at exactly the right time that I need to refocus my thinking to be more positive.

I have little quotes, poems, pictures, scriptures, etc posted and scattered all about my home as reminders to me to keep thinking positive and to look on the bright side of life. For each day I awake is a blessing to me and I don’t want to waste a minute of it entertaining negative thoughts.

Writing poems makes each day different
Often they bring bewilderment
Or joy to a humdrum day
Their creation is my pay
As thoughts take on form
Not always norm
They excite
