Annie of McGuffy’s Reader is hosting Sparks, an inspirational and positive thought for the week link-up, every Monday.
“The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change.” ~ McGuffy Ann Morris
I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.

Some lessons are easier to pay attention to than others 🙂
This is true, but paying attention is key. 🙂
Me too, Regine. 🙂
Everyone can teach us something if we pay attention. Thanks for the reminder!
Many people never pay attention. They are too busy with other things. 🙂
The only positive thing I know is the red lead to my car battery.
You crack me up. You have a wicked sense of humor. I like that. 🙂
I BELIEVE THIS. Yes, some people come into our lives and stay. Some are lessons learned. Some are lessons taught. But, everything happens for reasons. We need to pay attention and learn our lessons well. P.S. I remember Marla Gibbs, too. Thank you for the Sparks. Hugs, my friend.
Yes, everything happens for a reason. We just need to pay attention. 🙂
Avoiding negative is difficult but it can be done with commitment. Your blog is always positive
There is so much negative right now. I'm always looking for the positive. 🙂
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out…I love the laughter and inspiration I get form your blog!

PS I don't comment as much as I should, but I do read your blog
I can't find your blog. I'll work on that. I know Marg is one of your visitors. 🙂
I truly believe this also, there is a reason for everyone we meet to be in our lives no matter how briefly, sometimes that brief meeting is a learning or teaching moment if we only pay attention.
It's the paying attention that some folks miss out on. That's a whole lot of wonderful things they are missing. 🙂
Good advice. I wish people could see and follow that.
Perhaps the reminder will help. 🙂
Yes, great advice. So often people don't learn anything and perpetuate hate and negativity. I'm hoping for change. Either that or a big smack upside the head! 🙂
I love that Annie is doing this. Focussing on yhe good is what we all need to do. 🙂
We certainly could use some more positivity in this world.
Yes we could. Lots more positive thoughts and deeds. 🙂
I do believe in fate and learning from our experiences.
Me too. I always have. 🙂
