Pollyanna is a vigilante.
A vigilante for OPTIMISM! I know it sounds corny, but it’s true. She is happy ALL the time! What else would explain it? You know me, I’m all for being happy and positive; I do refer to the perky side of me as Polli (with an “I” because it’s way more perky than a “Y”!), so that’s a bit ironic don’t you think? Or am I just the only one who never saw the connection?
I am thinking I need to join up with her; I can be her ”backup man” for optimistic justice! I welcome help for converting the “in the dark” people (get it? dark side…) to the “light side”, and it means I’ll have a friend if we’re tied with duct tape and shoved in a closet somewhere!
The word Vigilante is Spanish and Portuguese for “the watchman”. I like that. I like giving myself the opportunity to “watch” over the everyday well being of people I know, (admit it, it’s one of the things you LOVE about me!), and those I meet/and or come in contact with; I get a smile, even with the shaking of the head! And doesn’t it have such an air of a “mission with purpose”?
“No, I’m not trying to be annoying I’ve been assigned to watch over your well being and be of assistance and a positive influence”.
That’s AWESOME!!!! To be able to put forth one’s PURPOSE on a DAILY basis, I could not ask for anymore! This is a great plan-it makes me HAPPY and clap out loud!!
So I think “the perk” is about to be turned up a notch, if that’s possible?! There will definitely be more smiles and dancing in our days ahead. If you Dance In to your day, you can’t help but to Dance Out of your day!
