Putting a positive spin on my life


This is David, sitting in our patio (December 2016).


I find that when negative thoughts bother me, I try to put a positive spin on my life. In other words, I see the cup half full, not half empty. It’s all about positive thinking and counting my blessings. And my blessings are many.

For example, I am still married to David.

I own a big, comfortable house in the suburbs.

I own my car and don’t need to drive David’s car.

My two children are self supporting and are homeowners.

My two grandkids are healthy and doing well in school.

So, when I think positive and not negative, I pat myself on the back and say, “Not bad. My family and I are doing better than expected.”

    I find myself doing that also. Yesterday someone commiserated on my legs and I said my sight is perfect, as is my hearing and my brain. It’s too easy sometimes to slip into poor me’s. I like to slip sideways out of them and count the many great things.

    The negative things will always be there whether we think about them or not.
