Sparks - positivity


Some days it is difficult to have a positive attitude, but I try not to complain and always believe in silver linings.

This is another of Dad Tom’s photos. In fact, I used it in its original form for a Spark in June. This version was “artified” using the Phoenix effect from Picas.

In case you are not a sports fan and thus unfamiliar with Wade Boggs, here’s a little information. Wade Anthony Boggs is a former American professional baseball player (third baseman). His career lasted 18 years. He played primarily for the Boston Red Sox but also for the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. While with the Yankees, Boggs won the 1996 World Series against the Atlanta Braves. He was with the Devil Rays when he reached 3,000 hits. You can learn more about him here.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

I am also joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. I think this butterfly and art deserve an “awww.” Click on their badge to join.

Another great read! I find that attitude is by far one of the most important things to develop in life. We reap what we sow, so we must always have a positive attitude towards ourselves, our dreams, and others. A negative attitude towards others can never bring us success. Thanks for the enjoyable read!

TRUE! I never realized just how toxic a bad attitude is until The Boy moved in. He’s completely miserable and tries to take the rest of us down with him! He thinks everyone else is happier and has all that he wants – but he doesn’t understand that true happiness is a state of mind and not about possessions.

I am so glad you gave instructions. Without them, I would have continued as I was. I was trying to keep any spammers at bay. It worked but apparently it also kept some of our bloggers furriends at bay too. 🙁

Artsy photo and it somehow matches the positive thought. Right on my friends.

Lovely photo and spark! We completely agree and do our best to always be positive!

We didn’t realize there were issues with commenting on Blogger blogs. Not sure if that applies to us but we’ll try to figure it out.

That Butterfly Art is a huge Aw. Beautiful and butterflies are very special to me.

The Margo Adams affair and palimony lawsuit was and interesting read. Always out to get the money from the ones that have it and it usually involves a relationship. What a shame, but he won so that’s some consolation. I’d never heard of this player until today.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

Petcretary says she always tries to find the bright side of things, or to make the best of anything that may not seem to be good in her life. She knows a little of positivity goes miles and miles to brighten up the outlook of the day or the problem.
It helps her at her work too.

We didn’t change our comments to a full page because then there is no way to reply to an individual comment…though having said that we only reply at random times, MOL! We do have a WordPress account so that should make it easier for you to comment there. There is a link on our blogger blog, as well as when we post the selfie blog, we are now adding a link right there in the hop. Hope that will work for you. ♥
