The Power of “Positude”

The Covid Pandemic has calmed down, our weary eyes are watching Russia and Ukraine.

We have sprung forward into the issues of life and death.

The beat goes on and the drama never stops. Time marches relentlessly on and life is easier with a positive attitude.

We encourage each other on the journey. We all need help sometimes.

It is so easy to get off track, situations and circumstances make us feel hopeless and helpless.

Positude helps us to see around the difficulty. Getting or going through the ordeal with Compassiontude and dignity.

I have a Gratefultude for all my Positude partners.

It is so easy to fall into the dumps and throw your own pity party.

It is just as easy to have a Celebratetude  and focus on the good stuff.

Every day I have a Thankfultude, I take time to count my blessings. May all your challenges be met with Positude!

Be well my beloved friends.

Always Agape,
