The groundhog saw his shadow, six more weeks of winter!
(Editor’s note: Meaning Spring will officially begin March 21st like it always does.)
The days are getting longer, and the hope of spring is getting stronger. Spring hides her head in the darkness of winter only to come rushing forth at the first hint of warmth.
Positude, like Spring, understands the certitude of winter must bow in homage to hope.
The beauty of hope and grace have the power to overwhelm our jaded sensibilities.
So that Feartude must give way to Faithtude. Lightude always dispels Darktude. Joytude claps her hands as she dances triumphantly through whatever Sorrowtude throws into her path.
So Positude celebrates life as Negatude whines and complains. We are all powerful beings; our words can build up or tear down. Therefore the children of Positude shine like rays of sun.
Light is life!
Be well my beloved friends.
