Positivity is a Choice

I have taught myself, over the years, to see beauty in everything.  There is something positive to be discovered, even on the darkest days.


Positivity is truly a choice…

Happiness comes from within…

Your thoughts become your quality of life…make those thoughts amazing!

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…




The Gift of Gratitude: Laughter

Today celebrates Day 9 of my 31 Days of Gratitude…Laughter.

This is one of my favorite photos!  Pure Joy!

I love to laugh!  My kids always make me laugh!  Wifey is hilarious and makes me belly laugh, often.  Tonight, I was trying to write this post.  But, I was consistently interrupted by my Little Bro, who lives in New York City.  He is quite funny, but don’t tell him I told you that or it will go to his head!  I am the Big Sis and I have to keep him in line!

I tend to multitask throughout the day.  After teaching little people for 20+ years, I have become an expert at tackling more than one task at a time.  Because of this, I tend to dictate my text messages and e-mails.  It is just faster for me.  Well…let’s just say there have been a few times that I have left actual voice messages for people in “dictation mode”,  leaving not only a detailed message, but complete punctuation!  I gave the office ladies at the dentist quite a chuckle, a few months ago, once they listened to my voice message!  Oops!

Tonight, when I was sending Little Bro an audio message, the dictation bug bit me in the bottom once again!  And, he will NEVER let me live it down…ever!  So, I thought I would share another quirky “Roda tidbit” and let everyone enjoy a little laughter!
