    A Man Who Teaches Important Lessons

    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...

    Appreciating Being Alive And Part Of The Great Big Whole

    Each of us learns many different things in this life at a different pace, but sometimes it takes a life shattering event such as death, trauma or loss to really jolt us into appreciating each and every thing/encounter/person in our life. I have learned the meaning of...

    A very old lady looked in the mirror one

    morning. She had three remaining hairs on her head, and being a positive soul, she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today." So she braided her three hairs, and she had a great day. Some days later, looking in the mirror one morning, preparing for her day, she saw that she had...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
