I am so looking forward to the movie, " Hidden Figures".
It inspired this little piece for the cover of the fall issue of
SCBWI. The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
SCBWI.org. If you are interested in learning about how to write or how illustrate children's books you want to start here.
Sometimes we live life just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
We expect bad things to happen to us most of the time. I use to
think like this. Recently I just went through one of the roughest
seasons in my life and people had lots to say. I find that some
folks just like to hear themselves talk. They don't want truth
they just want to have their ears tickled with negativity and then
want to spread it everywhere they go, but what if those same
person lived with expectancy? Expect some joy, peace, creativity,
laughter and love. What if they went to their mailboxes and found
some good news or a check? What if they expected good news on the
daily news? What if they looked for it in every situation?
Disappointment shows up because you expected it too.
Doubt, hurt and fear showed up because you expected it too.
It had to show up so that you won't think you are crazy.
My challenge for you today is to EXPECT something WONDERFUL
to SHOW UP TODAY! Just for today!
