Have you seen POLLYANNA?

By Lori Eastlick, Director of Nursing

If you have not seen this old movie, then I suggest you do and share it with family and children especially. It is about a town that was influenced by one little girl, Pollyanna.

I have often said to myself “self, how can I positively influence those around me?” 

I was told one time to bring rainbows to other people’s lives so I had my daughter put rainbows is my hair. The elderly who I took care of would just smile and laugh and they were right it helped to brighten others’ lives.

I was told being upside down can cheer you up. Try it. It works.

I want to share the amazing gift that is caring. Caring for those who need us. Helping others to live a fulfilled life when they seem down and out.  I remember not long ago I made a choice. A choice to be different. To take the challenge to smile as much as I can and to say “hello” to a stranger. To do the little things that can make anyone’s day, and I found I was happier.  I challenge all of you to do something for someone, to smile bigger when it’s a gloomy day. To not tear down, but build up.

Last night I found a 30 day Challenge on Pinterest.

Day 1 FOR EVERY WORSE CASE SCENARIO YOU THINK OF IMAGINE THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN….

It goes on to list 30 days’ worth of ideas, read if you feel inclined.

I hope that this holiday season finds you and yours healthy, happy and grateful to be a part of the human race.
