    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...

    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...

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It is what has kept me going

    even when I felt down and out.It is always better to count the stars then see the clouds.It is difficult though and requires a lot of will power.I am on the lookout for the time when I can get out of the tunnel.

    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.

    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...
