It’s That Time of the Year Again!

tree-line-281216Yes, I know. We all make plans for the future. We all set ourselves goals, impossible targets. Lost weight, write a book, go to the gym, take up running. Somehow at the end of each day the goal posts keep on moving further away.

Well, this year I’ve decided to settle for being POSITIVE.

Yep, just that!

Positive is a powerful little word. Whatever life throws at me I’m going to look for the positivity.

I was watching the News this morning about the shooting in Turkey on New Year Day and one of the survivors was talking about how she was in the toilets when the shooting started and was positive she was going to die. She said she hugged her friend and they said their goodbyes when the shooting stopped because they believed the gunman would blow themselves up.

Is that accepting your fate?

Do you think it is wrong of her to accept her fate, that nothing could change what was going to happen next?

I felt the young woman was very brave to go quietly into the darkness, to accept that death was the only option open to her, no knight in shining armour.

Her experience will never leave her. She has been changed for ever by it, and is all the stronger for it too. For her whatever fate throws her way, her positivity will always help her deal with the rest of her life from now on.

We must all believe in our dreams and fight on, keeping our eye on our target, but not allow it to rob us of our sense of joy and the pleasure of living life to the full.  Happiness

We all have mountains to climb, so allow me to wish you a Positive New Year as we step forward into 2017 and the next lap in life’s little adventure.

Keep on Writing!

Keep the Faith and Keep Safe!

I shall catch up with you again soon.
