    We Can Do Anything

    When confronted with an urgency or necessity that is clearly humanly possible but still seems beyond me, my circle of friends, or a work group tasked to get the deed done, I think about Sunday, September 3, 1967. On that day, at 4:50 am to be precise, Sweden went from using the...

    Life Is Better With A Positive Attitude

    My favorite saying about life and a positive attitude is "life is what you make it".. if you want it to be positive then you have to have a positive attitude.. I have a friend who is always saying life sucks and is always in a bad mood.. he doesn't seem to get the "life is what...

    More than that, I work at least daily on

    maintaining and advancing a positive mental alignment. There are so many things that would trap you into focusing on things you cannot change, or problems you cannot directly solve, but when you focus on "how can I do this" rather than the negatives, then you can create a...

    Attitude is pretty much everything.

    I'm working the full hall alone again 30 residents all to myself, but hey the sun is shining and we're doing alright. I decided to put a smile on my face, Hank Jr. on the stereo, and dance with the old ladies.

    It's Relieving To Find My Positive Inner Self Again.

    For too long I have let the negativity of my situation influence my positive energy. I may have lost something important to me, but as I look back, clinging to that thing I thought I wanted to badly has destroyed my positive outlook and energy for years.From now on I will simply...

    The Super Bowl

    I am one American testosterone driven man who couldn't care less about the Super Bowl tonight. The more I hear about it, the more I dislike it. I even heard the Major League baseball Network talk about it. When I was a kid there was never so much hoopla over it.

    The Impact Of Attitude

    This may belong more appropriately in an expereince group about quotes, because it stands well on its own.  Although long, it is a favorite of many.  Its source is Charles R. Swindoll, a writer and clergyman, still very much alive as of this posting.   I also include another...

    We all go through hard times.

    . when we feel so drained, lost and sad.. But we need to remember that just because we've had a cloudy day doesn't mean the sun won't shine tomorrow. And just because it hurts so much sometimes that doesn't mean we won't feel amazing again.. you see? We all need to realise...

    You can't take life for granted

    because you never know what might happen tomorrow. I always keep that thought to remember to be grateful for every breath I take, for all those around me, for how far I become. For my body as it ages and my hair as it starts to turn gray. I'm grateful!

    Appreciating Being Alive And Part Of The Great Big Whole

    A Great Way To Begin A Year, Or Just Any Day Of The Year

    I borrowed this from Ann Landers. In that respect, it may be considered a long quote. On the other hand, I have carried a copy of it around with me for more than 10 years. It was a New Year's column, but it is a menu we can select from on any day of the year. Doing positive...
