During the Spring Season we think of everything bright and beautiful. The flowers start blooming and the grass turns green; with newborn chicks peeping high above in their nests. The cool spring breezes blow through your hair. You lay down in the field and look up at the clear blue skies that display fluffy odd shaped clouds to ponder upon.
The children are playing outside with screams of delight in the air while the little ones learn to pedal a two wheeler for their very first time in their young lives.
Ah...these are the simple things in life that we enjoy. These are the little things in life that we will miss if we don't stop and take a moment to remind ourselves of these little joys and do something to get our spirits soaring. With all things "little and small" in life....give insight to spring fresh ideas ...during changing times.
The POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul was founded in June of 2007 to give a ‘safe haven' to those who needed a place to go when the soul got weary. This group has continuously grown and we continue to have these contests to support our ActiveRain Community and its members.

- Kathy McGraw Realtor® in Banning, CA- Celling Realty. She also moderates for the POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul group and has been a consistent voice in ActiveRain for almost two years. With her ‘no bones about it' she is the essence of "being positive does not mean I let you run over me"
- Ann Cummings RE/MAX Coast to Coast - Portsmouth New Hampshire Ann is a 2.5 year veteran member of ActiveRain and one of my favorite Localism writers (honestly...one of my mentors) She has supported all of our members throughout her time here and one of the most 'real' people with her straight forward attitude.
- Linda Bourgault is one of my dearest friends from Hawaii and we initially met because of my affiliation with her husband Bruce (he was a loan officer who frequented our office often). Since his death, it took her a year before she came back to ActiveRain...and in full force!
- Deb Brooks Lake Livingston Real Estate, in Huntsville, TX is founder of one of my favorite groups Diary of a Realtor and most recently started her outside blog for the group with loads of wonderful entries for not just real estate...but everything real estate industry related (which is just about everything).
Good luck and great writing!!!!!
