When Was the Last Time You Practiced Positivity?

I have a confession to make.

Although I consider myself to be a very positive person, I wasn’t always that way. Actually, I was more like the opposite.

I was a complainer…  didn’t even realize it until one day long ago my brother called me on it.

“Y’all are always complaining” he said to my husband and me.

Oh, it hurt to hear that. I was pretty angry about his bold remark….right in my house… as my guest! The nerve of him!

But he was right, as I later realized. Thank you for pointing this out to me, brother Robert! It was a really good life lesson for me.

I had so much to be thankful for, yet I was not expressing gratitude.

Yes, I worked 6 – 7 days a week and had to bring the bookkeeping home to work on till late at night…. and never got 8 hours of sleep… maybe 6 hours if I was lucky.

But I had a good husband and precious daughter, a nice house that we owned, fine cars, fashionable clothing, short vacations in the Caribbean….  And my husband and I were owners of a successful business.

Ah, yes, we had the American dream of owning our own business. We had followed my husband’s dream and succeeded.

But we didn’t take the time to be thankful for all we had.

I hope you’re not making the mistake of complaining and blaming others and not being grateful.

Who have you thanked lately?

Is there more negativity or positivity in your life?

Why does it matter?

Because you attract what you project… so why not attract positive things like love and peace and prosperity to share with others less fortunate than you?

Go for a life of joy! Go claim what’s rightfully yours!

Heed the Laws of Attraction and remember to take action!

You know, it’s never too late to change. You should be striving every day to be an ever better person. It’s a never-ending journey.

There’s much to learn, and I find that rhyming and music and lyrics help me to remember better.

Don’t you find that to be true for you, too?

With that in mind, for today’s lesson I picked these lyrics from my song, ‘Start A New Life’:

What will you do today?
Will you remember to pray
and be thankful
for all you have?

Today is your day to start a new life,
To start out renewed
And let your dreams take flight!

The past is gone.

It’s your day to start a new life….
your day to start a new life!

Let not grudges become
the focus of your life.
Forgive, forget!
Let go of strife!

Today is your day to start a new life,
To start out renewed
And let your dreams take flight!

The past is gone.

It’s your day to start a new life….
your day to start a new life!

Learn from mistakes you make
and repeat them not again.
Get far away
from where you’ve been.

` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
Yes! Get far away!
