Sometimes I think people who are continually sprouting and printing positive affirmations on all their text are sappy. I am just too cool for these honey inspired messages.  Keep your uplifting opinions to yourself.  You don’t know what I’m going through.  Yeah sometimes I think these things, but know what, I am wrong.

With the continuous barrage of negativity daily by television, newspapers, movies, and the net, there needs to be some kind of counter balance, or we would certainly all be on drugs.

There is a friend of mine, Sande, who begins every morning on her face book page with a beautiful picture and an uplifting message.  I’ve been reading them for a couple of years now, even when its a crappy beginning of the day for me.  They always make me smile and dissipate any early day clouds.

Lisa is another one of these people who take the time to paste a beautiful, or cute picture.  I catch these at the end of my day.  Her sugary message always fills me with a happy sign.  Often the real or imagined stress leaves for the rest of the evening.

The cutesy animal and baby pictures remind me what it was to have a baby in my home or a loving pet.  While, at the moment, I have neither, their imprint is refreshed in my heart.

Sure we can be too cool for this stuff and dismiss it as sappy, but once in a while that counter balance to all the harshness of the real world is good for our minds and souls.  If you choose not to note it, then don’t. No one will know one way or another. But as for me, I’ll keep the couple of moments that it takes each day to read and smile.

The Louise Hay quote, pasted on the top of this blog, was copied from the page of my late cousin Johnny’s son, Johnny.  It is a really good one and will surely become a new mantra  of mine.  Come on and admit it.  Doesn’t it give you pause to think?
