• Think Good Thoughts, People!

    Seeing the trending topic #WorstMemoryOf2011 prompted me to turn something intended for negative to be something positive and uplifting. Here was my response: ” #WorstMemoryOf2011 Hmm. I don’t think I want to dwell on the negative. We know things happen, but we can’t just sit there. #MovingForward “ Life itself can be so discouraging. We know that things don’t always happen for us when and how we want them to happen. We’re often inconvenienced, and things “pop up” unexpectedly. We lose loved ones that were the close to us. BUT.
