    Practicing 'The Secret" Day One

    I had read the book "The Secret" several years ago...I didn't finish reading it. I also watched the movie. I was skeptical thinking "this stuff is crap". So, I only tried it half-assed. Today is day one of "positive thoughts". So far, its interesting and fun. You just write down...

    Positive thinking is great

    but we must be careful to do it in such a way that it doesn't justify a life of complacency.

    Positive Thinking And Health

    I have always been a positive thinker even when things seemed difficult or even tragic. In other words, life is full of ups and downs for everyone. We all loose people and pets we love. We all have issues with our finances at one time or another. Many of us have gone through...

    It Works~

    I believe in positive thinking because low points suck. But nothing sucks more than being at a low point and thinking that it'll never get better while making no attempt to challenge that thought. Challenge your debilitating thoughts. How you think about your life shapes it, it...

    Change the way you look today.

    Why waste time? It doesn't carry over the next day. It doesn't earn interest. Take every day and every moment, and make something of it. Make something positive!

    a beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset,

    when you wake up take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy, the moment you start acting like life is a blessing, i assure you that it will start to feel like one.

    Positively...

    I absolutely positively believe that being positive in ones life will help you get through even the toughest of times.  I am positive that this attitude is what has helped me walk the path that I have walked rather than giving up and throwing in the towel.

    How we think affects our daily lives.

    When we think, we attract. Yes it's true. Have you ever read THE SECRET? it's where everything lies on what they call as The Law of Attraction. We may not get it at first but it really works. When we think about having a good life, surely it will come. But of course, everything...
