The Positivity Wave #56

The Positivity Wave
Welcome to my Friday feature! Created by the wonderful Meggy @ Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles, it’s a remedy against feeling down by creating a list of all the good things happening in my life this week. I became so inspired by her weekly posts and later also that by Nickimags @ Secret Library Book Blog,  I felt it was time to begin sharing my own good feelings. It can be anything, from the smallest gesture from a stranger to a major event in your life that alters the direction of your day. Maybe something here will bring a smile to you in the moment.


I’m Grateful

I know deep in my heart that I have lots to be grateful for in the midst of all the worldwide worry and concern. If I keep my focus on gratitude, I’ll feel its constant presence.


Lemon Tea

My throat was a little scratchy and it feels like I might be coming down with a cold. Thank goodness for lemon tea. I feel better, even though it might all be in my head😏


The Nothing Man
I wanted this audiobook really, really bad and got approval earlier today!


Black Panther


I was devastated when I learned of Chadwick Boseman’s death but it was wonderful to watch Black Panther commercial free on ABC Sunday night. It was a great time.


Beach House #1
We didn’t have a rental for the Labor Day weekend but at the last minute, it was booked!


Chicken Stir Fry


I am not the best cook but I’m improving! I created my own chicken stir fry recipe (that’s not the pic but it has the right ingredients) and we both loved it! Even better? I enjoyed making it. My Mom is smiling down on me🥰


  • My older sister called me to vent about a work issue and she ended the conversation empowered and laughing!
  • My younger sister is up to a 20 lb weight loss!!!
  • I finished listening to a book I’ve been dying to get to and it surpassed my high expectations.
  • I got in two workouts last week! And, I started a plank challenge this morning.
  • It’s September, my birth month and favorite time of the year!
  • Audible has revamped membership perks and I now have a premium account that allows me to stream books without using credits. I added about six books this morning💜

I continue to pause and reflect upon the people and things in my life that truly matter. For that, I’m grateful.

What are you grateful for in this moment?

  1. Happy Birth Month Jo! I hope you have a great month. What??? Audible Plus lets you stream books, I need to check this out, I have a month right now to try. I loved The Nothing Man, I hope you do as well. I am going to try ratatouille, a new recipe, you give me hope. I love how close you and your sister are, great to have family support. Have a great week Jonetta.

  2. Such a lovely thing being close to relatives especially during this time. I read The Nothing Man and I think you are going to have a fun time with it. I am making a new Paula Deen chicken casserole this weekend plus a triple berry dump cake.

    I am grateful because my bp medicine is working and I am feeling so much better. I am also so very grateful that I have a wonderful friend in you, Jonetta! Thanks for all your input on the new doctor I will be seeing in October. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

  3. I’d love to rent your beach house but there’s only 2 of us so it seems ridiculous. I always love to hear the wonderful things for you. I’ll have to check out the audio you really wanted. Was the one you were dying to get to the newest Karin Slaughter? I’m glad the cooking is going better for you. You are lucky to have sisters. I always wished I had one.

    Have a lovely holiday weekend. I’m looking forward to the cooler weather.

  4. I actually dislike cooking, and I think that has something to do with my weight gain over the years, it’s so much easier to eat junk food, but I’m changing, and the last two month have been a vast improvement already. A stir fry sounds right up my alley. 😀

    Also, I have the audiobook for The Nothing Man on my tbr too.

    1. Corina, I HATED cooking until a few months ago when I had a beautiful encounter with a cooking angel in the grocery store. She changed my whole perception and experience of cooking. I’m still not overly enthusiastic but I’m enjoying it when I do. And, yes, it’s affecting my weight in good ways.

      I think we both are going to enjoy The Nothing Man!

  5. I haven’t heard of this Audible Premium Account – streaming without using credits sounds great! September isn’t my birth month, but it probably is my favourite month as well. I love the transition from summer to fall.
