I have been nominated for this challenge by Melanie Bee Cee of Sparksfromacombustiblemind.


The challenge was initiated by my Pal Beckie of Beckie’s Mental Mess.

“Pop of Positivity” aka “POP!” Debut and Test Run: Time To Be Happy


Beckie states:

“Pop of Positivity”

“Pop of Positivity”   It’s based on one simple thing.  “Life doesn’t have to suck all the time.”  Let’s face it… There is a Helluva lot of negativity in the real world, and it’s pretty hard to escape it.  I thought of this as a means to brighten up everyone’s day from thinking negatively for a moment out of their day.  Perhaps, share some smiles along the way too.


  1. Each Thursday, I’ll pick a Theme (Naturally something positive).

  2. I will, therefore, Tag Two Bloggers to continue the themed positive message along.

  3. You, the recipient of the tag can select anyway fit on how you want to share this positivity.  (Example: Quote, Affirmation, Music Video, Memes, Pictures, etc… As long it sticks to the Theme).

  4. Please create a ping-back to the original post (Beckie’s), as well as notifying your tagged bloggers that you have selected them.

Fairly easy, right?  Let’s say we give this a shot, okay?

Topic: Time To Be Happy”


So here I go:

“There isn’t much more positive than watching the Sunrise on a brand new day, feeling like there is a world of opportunity out there ready and waiting for you to grab it.”


You could be positive about winning the lottery….

But watching my chickens pecking around my garden gives me more pleasure than Gold.



Enjoying all the plants and flowers in my garden, that always puts me in a positive mood. IMG_3724

Of course, a bit of meditation is always nice….

But I find dancing around to cheesy music gives me a lift (even if the pictures blurry).


Maybe I should relax more and do a bit of Yoga on the beach….

But then again, maybe not. I’ll just enjoy staring at this picture of a sunflower instead. 😉

So, if you fancy taking up the baton and sharing some pictures of what makes you feel happy and positive, then please go right ahead.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
