“The sun always shines above the clouds.” – Paul F. Davis
I start with a bag of optimism,
Add a growing gratitude list
Toss in a willingness to try
And serve it with a positive attitude.
People continue to ask:
“What specifically is in your toolbox?”
Here is a partial list of the contents:
*1 GIANT barrel of Hope.
*Lots of trial and error.
*A strong will to keep moving forward.
*1/2 box of dual purpose tissues. (Perfect for sad or joyful tears.)
*2 bottles of Elmer’s glue, leftover from when I had to put my pieces back together.
*Last hugs from people I have loved and lost or had to leave behind. They are pieces of my foundation.
*New hugs for people I have yet to meet.
*An old worn out pair of hiking boots that remind me of the mountains I have climbed and the deserts I have crossed. They are a reminder of the obstacles I have overcome.
*One of many favorite books- “The Language of Letting Go, written by Melody Beattie with numerous dog-eared pages.
*The Rainbow Bridge Poem. Link to Rainbow Bridge poem
*Bing AND Google search bar(s) for researching motivational quotes as needed.
*Compassion, forgiveness and patience for myself and others.
*A “note to self” to remind me: IT’S OK TO ASK FOR HELP.
*Purple crayons borrowed from Harold. Link to Harold and the Purple Crayon overview.
