Reverb - Wisdom

Reverb prompt:
Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?  Oy vay! That's a big question! I do believe the wisest decision I made this year was choosing the word "positivity" for my word of the year. I thought by focusing on positivity and all things positive, I would set into motion a tidal wave of positive energy, events and emotions that would swell over my life. Ends up my year threw a lot of challenges, heartache and disappointments at me. Positivity prevailed. Focusing on the positive allowed me to pause, recognize and appreciate the good. It simultaneously helped me to overcome the bad. To recover from negative emotions faster. To see the good where there was also bad. I have learned a lot this past year. Embracing the positive is a very wise decision.

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.  ~Alphonse Karr

You must start with a positive attitude or you will surely end without one.  ~Carrie Latet

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Worship," The Conduct of Life, 1860

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.  ~Maori Proverb

Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.  ~Art Linkletter

Why not learn to enjoy the little things - there are so many of them.  ~Author Unknown

(I love living surrounded by the creations of my children! Magical.)

This is a big one for me too.
But now that you have turned your 11 inside out, that is a beautiful step towards peace.
I'm in your corner! Sending positive thoughts your way. xoxo
