Happy Positive Day!

I was encouraged to participate in this special holiday by my Queen, Mimi, who discovered it here. I think it's a wonderful idea, and the perfect prelude to kicking off the August Happiness Challenge, which begins here on This Gal's blog for the third year in a row tomorrow.

So I'm "accentuating the positive"
by reminding msyelf

how I start each and every day.
For my morning routine really is all good.

First, I pet a cat. One of my trio is always in bed beside me. I don't know how they work out amongst themselves whose turn it is, but they do. It's wonderful to wake up and stroke the soft fur of a little soul who loves me no matter what, and to remember that I did a good thing by saving his/her life, since all three of cats are shelter rescues. I am rewarded by that "good thing" I did with this acceptance and affection each and every morning.

Then I take a shower. The whole world always looks better when viewed from under freshly shampooed hair. And there's my shower radio. I always have it turned to the oldies station and I love to sing along. I am amazed by how I can't remember where I left my keys last night, but I have such happy, detailed memories of where I was the first time I heard, "Ain't No Woman Like the One I Got" by the Four Tops. (An after school/before dinner run to Jack in the Box with Joanne from down the block.)

and the very simple instructions.


  1. Oh man, now I have to think of something POSITIVE when I am all about the MEH today. /sigh/ Okay, I will do it since I have to steal everything from you, this included.

    (PS: Cookie wouldn't make a good vampire. He's way too 'earthy' looking with that yummy arm porn to be all ethereal and whatnot. Robert Patterson (pattison?) is pretty much what I would imagine a vampire could/should be.)

  2. Of course I had to swipe this. I'm all in for the August Challenge, too.


  3. Thanks for participating. I read a post where someone listed clean water as what they were positive for. It made me think - really, there is so many things that we could list. And a shower and freshly washed hair do make me feel better too.

    I am going to add you to the linky on my blog, OK?

    Be blessed!

  4. starting the day by petting a cat is fabulous!!

  5. I'm here from Jen's linky.

    Petting my cat is one of the first things I do in the morning too.

    Happy Positive Day!

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
