Yeasayer – Wordplay Wednesday™ 04/24/2019

The Yeas and Nays of Life

We all know the naysayers … never a good word to say about anything or anyone. As the dictionary says, they … oppose, refuse, or deny, esp. habitually.

Ignore them. Turn instead to those who lift your spirits every time you encounter them …

YEASAYER (yāʹʹɘr) n. – a person who has an affirmative or positive attitude toward life.  [WW #213]

That isn’t to say negative, frustrating, or devastating events never happen to them, it’s simply how they deal with the experience

Perhaps a short “cursing a blue streak” in the beginning, but then with some thought … and a little invisible effort … the yeasayer looks for a positive outcome in every negative event. Be it in their life or yours.

Every day may not be great, but every smile is.

Word Challenge: YEASAYER. Celebrate those in your life who make every day a life-affirming happening. Are you one of them? Terrific! Never underestimate the power of a smile, as you slip yeasayer into your week of uplifting conversation and writing.

Learning knows no prejudices or boundaries, and it isn’t fattening! Expanding your mind is a no-cost, simple joy. Do you feel that way too? What’s your inspiration? Share your creative genius and Wordplay Wednesday comments below.
