The original game was played by Pollyanna in a book published by Eleanor Porter named after the character in 1913. She decided to change her small town by playing a game that her father had taught her called “The Glad Game.”
Basically, it meant that she always found a reason to feel glad.
For example, think of something that doesn’t give a glad feeling, then try again by rethinking the same thought by finding some part of the original thought that has a fiber of gladness. ” I am feeling overworked, tired, and stressed out over my job, but I am truly glad that I have a job and can support myself.”
Try this idea with yourself, then expand it to your family and friends, especially when you hear a negative thought expressed in your presence.
The game is an experiment in which all parties playing the game can find a way to be glad. Come and discover some fun and enjoy.. Teach a child to play and you will learn something different.
