If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Reversal of Attitude

My daughter Jazzy forced me, as in F-O-R-C-E-D me, to watch a youtube video with her. Thinking it was another Miley Cyrus or Taylor Swift song, I pretended I was too  busy to be bothered. But she persisted. For fear of hurting her feelings, I finally gave in. And I did not regret it.

Jonathan Reed's poem, The Lost Generation, carries a timely message, not just for teens (like my kids) but for everyone else who cares about the world he or she lives in. The video that my daughter and I watched together is here but I found a clearer and better version.

Positive attitude can make a big difference. The fact that a meaningful awareness is spreading among our youth spells H-O-P-E. For it is true that change should begin with us.

This is truly interesting. Reading it forward didn't make sense but reversing it certainly does remind us of the importance.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
