A New Pollyanna


These days I’ve started looking at the world from a different perspective; it seemlike I’m reliving the life in a new way like Pollyanna.  

“When you look for the bad in mankind expecting to find it, you surely will.” (Pollyanna- a glad girl) 

Pollyanna a best-selling 1913 novel by Eleanor H. Porter is now considered a classic of children’s literature, with the title character’s name becoming a popular term for someone with the same optimistic outlook. 

The novel’s success brought the “Pollyanna principle” (along with the adjective “Pollyannaish” and the noun “Pollyannaism”) into the language to describe someone who seems always to be to find something to be “glad” about no matter what circumstances arise. Wikipedia  

So thanks to Pollyanna’s  contribution to our way of thinking and making our lives full of gratification. 

At this point of time lots of thoughts want to find a way from my mind on to the paper. Well I will try to control them for the time being, ‘coz I want to bring them out beautifully during A-Z Challenge 

From now my job will be to:  

  • look at things with positivism, 

  • laugh on the issues that irritate me, 

  • understand that time will always change it will never be the same, 

  • be flexible and clear, 

  • feel complete from within; my breaths are the proof of this. 

  • do everything without expectation


While writing for the challenge, genres may differ but the message will be same, that is to find good and appreciate. Hopefully this will reflect in my blog posts throughout the challenge….

Happy Writing! 2014 A-Z badge
