Fall Season of Miracles Contest | Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul Group

We could all use a postive story, so if you have one, tell it and get a few extra points in the deal! Sally Cheeseman is running another contest in the Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul Group. Easy peasy, join the group, follow the rules, write your post and take a chance that you just might win!


The leaves change colors during the fall season and are a signal that a miracle is about to take place.  It is the season of miracles.  The weather turns cool after a hot summer and it becomes more comfortable. We experience a sense of renewal, a time for change and to switch gears in our businesses, our relationships and everyday life experiences.


The fall season reminds me that I have a few months left of this year to gear up for the coming year with a plan for the miracles in life that I long and dream for.  I may need to get my home office organized, have more time for my family, or implement new ideas with my business plan.


Maybe we’ll just plan to take a bit of time off and travel to see my daughter, son in law and my new grandson. THAT in itself has been the biggest MIRACLE OF MY LIFE since I gave birth to my own children.




The POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul group gives you the opportunity to share the miracles in your life during this fall season with a creative writing challenge . What  miracles have you experienced in your life, relationships and business so far this season that you believe came from your good morals, values and beliefs?
