Happy New Year 2019 – Do You Make Resolutions or Proactive Goals with Focus Words or Phrases?

  Resolutions or Goals?   Happy New Year! After a 3-month hiatus, I’m endeavoring to return to blogging in this new year.

Happy October 1st – and Why I Started Words of Encouragement

Happy October 1st! Welcome to Words of Encouragement!     Happy October 1st to all! I have once again joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) this month, so for my first post, I thought I would re-introduce the back story and purpose of this blog (can also be found on my About page). I thought this would also be a good idea because I’ve recently joined several new blog groups on Facebook. I decided to revise this blog, which was…

Turning Negatives Into Positives – Is It Possible?

Turning Negatives Into Positives – Is It Possible?

From Negative to Positive?   [**NOTE** I first shared this post back in March, but with all the worldwide events taking place – from wild weather events, to political unrest, to wars and conflicts and atrocities… it seemed appropriate to share it again!]   This has to be one of the more difficult situations in life to manage: Experiencing a negative situation or a host of negative circumstances, and holding onto the belief there will some how be positive outcomes…
