It has been a very long time since my last post here, and rather than this being because I’m so busy, it’s mainly because I’m just not feeling Pollyanna and haven’t for some time now. Nothing terrible has happened and I do have a word with myself now and again, but that feeling of goodwill, happy and generally being at peace with where I am in the world has deserted me. Or rather I’ve lost touch with it, because nothing has happened to make that feeling impossible.
So. I’m going to see if writing from a Pollyanna perspective will help. Each week! And perhaps by Christmas I’ll be my more usual chipper self, glad of the good things instead of wallowing in the not so good stuff.
We are not homeless, we are not hungry, we are not really horribly ill with something that may kill us, we have people who love us and we do have a more readily-available option to feel happy.
Let it be so.
