Howdy Peeps,

I just did a Google search for ‘positive affirmations’ and received about 2,650,000 results. That’s a lot of results. A lot of people have a things to say about positive affirmations. Even my Dad.

I notice 3:12 on the clock. Thank you Dad, hello to you too (3.12 is Dad’s birthday, he passed in 1984). What inspiration can you give me on ‘positive affirmations’? Then I notice the battery time on my laptop right now is 3:12 (that updates every couple of minutes). OK – Dad – what do you have to tell me, us? We’re listening!

What I remember about him, having to do with being positive is more what he did rather than what I remember him saying. He ‘acted as if’.

I decided to close my eyes, tune in to Dad and see what he has to say.

I always wanted you to do your best, and that still continues. The best way I knew how to show you when you were growing up is for me to continue to go after my dreams – never give up.

I started the body shop in the garage which led to my own business. After several years in I pursued another dream, owning a restaurant. Changing it into another restaurant wasn’t all because it wasn’t doing well, it was about still pursuing my dream, focusing on the positive – what is my dream.

When I was diagnosed with cancer, I didn’t give up. I looked for the positive things – how the surgery would remove the tumor so I could live longer, what the chemo would do so it wouldn’t come back. I looked for the positive in things and kept my attitude positive.

Remember when you would come into the hospital, I would put on a smile so you would know things would be all right though I knew I wouldn’t be with you much longer. I kept the positive outlook.

Thanks Dad! You did teach me a lot about positive affirmations in the form of ‘doing’. What we do speaks volumes and our kids do notice.

There’s a quote I like: “What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Thank you Dad! Angel Blessings to you.
