Tuesdays with Maggie ~ Positivity

It seems so easy to succumb to the feeling of negativity these days. The news talks of a woeful existence as stocks plummet, house prices fall, and the world seems to be in disarray. But luckily there are many people that brush all that aside and still consider life and the world we live in to be a rather good place to be. Dee often says “think positively and good things will come.” She’s right. I am going to take us all back a few weeks ago when we had the wonderful “volunteer dinner” at the Bartley house. It sure was a testament to the farm to see so many wonderful people gathered in one room. When everyone was asked to introduce someone else, rather than just point out the obvious, everyone had something wonderfully positive to say about another person. It just seemed to come naturally. Positive people attract positive people. Positivity also brings good changes. When things look dismissal all of a sudden there is a ray of hope and happiness that comes from the wonderful people who have chosen to be a part of A Chance for Bliss. We have had an increase in the number of people who want to help and donate their time to helping our kids. It’s a wonderful time.
I hope to keep these positive vibes continuing at the farm and in my daily life. Just spend an afternoon at the farm, and you will feel it too. I promise.
Thank you Dee (and Woody!) for always being so positive and keeping the faith. We need more people like you in the world!
