In my quest to be a more happy person, I realized that my focus word for 2016 should be POSITIVE. Sorry, joy, hope, grace, and peace. While you are each wonderful, I am going with the word positive to remind myself to always look on the bright side of life.
Every time I hear, see, or think of that phrase, “always look on the bright side of life”, I automatically start singing that song from the Monty Python movie Life of Brian. Thank you, Eric Idle, for this quirky gem of a song that is not only true - well, except for death being the final word, but always brings a smile to my face and laughter to my lips! (And, makes me start whistling too!)
My New Year’s resolution is to not only be a more positive person, but to laugh a lot more. I am going to seek out funny things to watch, read, or listen to. With the interwebs close at hand, it shouldn’t be that hard.
Finally, I am going to be a lot more thankful. I am going to spend more time talking to God. I am going to give Him lots of little moments throughout my day, just to thank Him for all His glorious gifts, big and small.
Don't forget to laugh and smile and dance and sing!
I am so glad you are here! I am Erica Strickland, a girl who loves God. My goal here is to simply share His love and light.
