“Sometimes We Have To Be Positive On Purpose”Welcome to the homepage for Purposely Positive. Be sure and visit the “BLOG” page to see the current posts. Purposely Positive is my take on trying to maintain a positive attitude after some life changing events and dealing with a chronic illness. I realized one day that I didn’t hold much hope anymore for good things to happen in my life. But God gently reminded me that He still had blessings in store and a purpose for my life, but I needed to change my attitude in order to be open to the possibilities that lay ahead. I am and always will be a work in progress, but I’ve learned through many things God has done for me, that even if our body is broken, we can be a light to others for Him. If just one person reads my blogs and finds any kind of encouragement, then I feel something good has come out of the accident and illness that has changed my life in so many ways. I first began blogging about the aftermath of the accident which can be found at http://www.lauriefharrison.wordpress.com (Getting Through By God’s Grace). But I wanted to do something that gave me a more open canvas, so to speak, to share my experiences in trying to find the positive in the negative, through laughter and deep thought, while still praising God through the storms. I hope you can find something hear that can touch your heart as I share my journey.
