Believe Anyway….Just Because

Are you having a tough week, and it feels like God is busy with something else?…believe anyway. Are your family members being inconsiderate or getting on your nerves?….believe in them anyway. Is your bankroll shot, upside down in your house, overwhelmed by debt and it feels like there is now way out?….Believe Anyway….it costs nothing….Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, overworked, underappreciated, worn down?….and you don’t believe it can EVER change or improve? Believe Anyway.

Are you struggling with a serious health issue (mental or physical)? God, friends, doctors, and loved ones can come to your aid. Things can get better…so go ahead and believe anyway. Are you lonely and you don’t believe it will change?…you know the mantra—believe anyway. Go ahead. Be ridiculously stubborn. Believe Anyway. Snap off the depressing news on the TV/radio or wherever….it can infect your psyche, soul, heart, and optimism. No, I am not saying bury your head in the sand.

But I am beginning to think that Pollyanna had it right. I think it would do me [and everyone else] a world of good to play the glad game. I am hopeful that things will get better. I refuse to believe our ship is going to go down. There are a lot of bright, creative, loving, joyful, giving people in this world. I am resolved to kick my cranky to the curb for the day. I have been absorbed in worry and it turns my inner Tigger into Eeyore…I declare today, Thursday, to be my Tigger Day. Believe Anyway…Just Because….I am going to build my courage muscle and believe that optimism is as always, the better path.

I wish you love, joy, optimism….because I am a perennial optimist.

    Amen Kate!!! Did I tell you that my “middle” name is Pollyanna? At least it used to be. I’ll work on re-earning it!

      I’ve always been a Pollyanna, too Amy. …except for the times when I get out of balance and lose my inner Tigger/outer Pollyanna. One of the reasons I started blogging is to keep myself on track. Another reason is to be able to reach out to others!

    I hope you don’t mind, but I send this to a couple of people that I thought would appreciate it.

  3. Great thought on the first line. Believe anyways. I need to remember that.
