I try to read Pollyanna, by Eleanor H. Porter, at least once a year. Pollyanna introduced me to the power of positive thinking.
It was published in 1913, but the concepts are still relevant: There is always a reason to be glad.
I believe that, and its the outline for my philosophy on life. We have choices, and we can choose to be happy… or not.
For those of you not familiar with the book, Pollyanna is recently orphaned, and goes to live with her estranged Aunt Polly. Her Aunt Polly is cranky, but does her duty to Pollyanna. In the meantime, Pollyanna teaches the whole town about the “glad game.”
If you’ve never read it, definitely look it up. And if you have read it, it’s time to re-read it.
