There is hope

For Real

I enjoy looking for the good in people and noticing their potential.  Deliberately noticing the positive doesn’t mean I’m blind to the negative.  In fact, I’m hypersensitive to negativity; I just refuse to take it in as part of my reality.  If you like living in a world of negativity, hopelessness and just plain unhappiness; just know that you are seeking to be misery on purpose. If that’s what you want, go ahead and wallow in it. Me, I going to enjoy life, notice the good in others and be a positive force for good; on purpose.

I’ve lived in both of these realities: the negative and positive.  When I was wallowing in being a pessimistic, I was quite skilled at distrusting what life had to offer and made sure that others noticed too.  That cliché, “misery loves company” was true in my case.   I truly was a mean person, who used her wit and sarcasm skills to create more misery.  I truly hope those I harmed were not so damaged by my behavior that they have not been able forgive me.

There was a day, when I realized that what I was doing wasn’t working for me, so I worked very hard to change my reality.  It was slow and frustrating process, but I was able to do it.  I even remember the first time I had an optimistic thought float through my brain; I was so shocked that I actually looked around to see who said that.

In my current reality, I am a strong and positive force for good.  I radiant happiness, because I see so much joy in the world and in myself, which in turn gives me the chance of brighten someone’s day rather than tear it down.  

No matter which reality you choice to own, you attract more and more of it into your life.  I choose to see your potential and assist you in seeing it for yourself.  I choose to be happy and to feel joyous, because every day is a great day.  What is your reality?

Life is good!  God is great! All is right in my world.

Many Blessings,



Baby Girl

Last week a small dove-gray kitten was found by my mother in our backyard.  The little one was trapped in the walled area that leads to the access door for underneath my house.  I had been hearing a cat meowing loudly for a couple of days, but couldn’t find it.  I would have tried harder had I realized it was a trapped kitten.  I just thought it was one of the many strays that roam the neighborhood and didn’t think about why it was sticking around.  After all, I love my yard, so why wouldn’t it?  Anyway, Baby Girl, the kitten, was so small she couldn’t jump out of the hole on her own.

Despite shaking with fear, Baby Girl didn’t panic when I touched her; she was so calm when I picked her up, she didn’t scratch me.  This was a divine experience for several reasons.  Namely, for the first time in years, I was able to get down on my hands and knees AND get back up myself.  Last year alone, I fell four times in the parking lot at work.  Namely, because I had a wheelchair lift on the back of my car and I had to walk to the driver’s side after loading up the wheelchair.  Strangers passing by would have to pick me up.  If you want to feel like a huge waste of space and I do mean huge; having a couple of strangers have to pick you up when you fall will do the trick.

Baby Girl has a soul of an explorer; the minute I set her down she took off into my garden.  It took us a couple of minutes to find her again.  Once I had her back, I held her in my arms, but the girl just wanted to explore.  Baby Girl walked laps around my neck, shoulders and lap; I perhaps should have named her after Nellie Bly or Amelia Earhart.

Baby Girl was too young to drink from a bowl.  To help her out, I dipped my fingers in the bowl and let her lick the milk off my fingers.  Why am I going into so much detail about Baby Girl?  I am supposed to be highly allergic to cats; so much so that I didn’t have to be near a cat, just near someone who had been near a cat sometime that day.  Huge hives spread throughout my body, just because somebody had been near a cat.  So the second part of this divine experience was finding out that I’m no longer allergic to cats.

In case you are wondering, a neighbor who feeds the stray cats and dogs in the neighborhood found Baby Girl a good home with her daughter and grandkids.  Yet another divine experience, a stray kitten, which was lost from her mother and siblings, has a new home filled with kids and new adventures

Life is good!  God is great! All is right in my world.

Many Blessings,


Where Baby Girl was Trapped

Becoming Positive

My healing journey has been a long one so long it’s no longer in my memory of when I started on the journey itself.  What I can tell you is what worked for me.  It was trial and error process and I’m hoping my sharing what I worked for me will shorten the journey for you.  The first step, I took was to change myself from a pessimist to an optimist.  Not an easy task, but it turns out it was doable.

Some of the tools/techniques I used to become a positive person:  affirmations, journal writing, forgiving those who harmed me, became a volunteer, gave away items I hadn’t used in over a year, found a spiritual home, stopped hanging around negative people, found new friends who are positive and supportive, started new hobbies and found interesting free events happening in my community.  There are endless opportunities and activities that are available that will assist you in creating a positive path.  Just remember if it doesn’t bring you peace, let it go.

Be a positive force for good and expect amazing things to come your way, because that is how it works.

In 2007, I posted online an article called “It’s Your Attitude” under the pen name of Genie Walker.  Genie is my nickname and someday, I’ll write why I was given this nickname.  To read my article, here is the website:

Life is good!  God is great! All is right in my world.
