This week marks one year of PositivelyAnna! I haven’t decided if I’m going to call it an anniversary or a birthday but either way I’m very excited!
I clearly remember how it all began…my mom was in town visiting. We were lounging on my roof deck enjoying a beautiful day and I mentioned that I was thinking of starting a blog. My mom immediately shot up as this was the best idea she had ever heard (God bless my mom for thinking almost all my ideas are the best she has ever heard). I said I wanted to recommend upbeat song for people to listen to when they are feeling down. My mom thrust the tiny pad and pen she always carries around (the original Genius Journal) into my hand and demanded that I start writing this all down. She also insisted that I use my name in the title because when Oprah announces how much she loves my blog, which she undoubtedly will, we don’t want someone else taking the credit. And so PositivelyAnna was born.
Thanks to everyone for making this a great first year for Positively Anna!
Song of the Day
I'm sure by now you have all heard the news of the untimely death of Michael Jackson. While there has been great debate about his personal life, there is no denying that he was an amazing artist. I greatly appreciate his effort to put positive music into the world. The first song I played on PositivelyAnna was The Way You Make Me Feel and it remains my ultimate pick-me-up tune. So lets play it again!
