In this day and age, we are continually bombarded with images that leave us empty: murder, war, terrorism, natural disaster, intolerance, hatred... the list could go on and on.

posts that provide help, hope, courage, love, forgiveness, peace,
motivation, encouragement, etc. A place to come especially on those
days when the woes of the world just seem too much to bear. This is a
place I would like to share with others who feel as I do. Therefore,
welcome to the 'Path of Positivity Challenge' -- a different sort of
challenge blog designed to inspire, nurture and provide support for the
soul by creating a positive path to follow, one project or post at a
