    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!

    Two dogs walk into the same room at separate

    times. One of the dogs walks out of it after a few minutes wagging his tail, and the other dog walks out growling. A woman goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise, she finds that the room is full of mirrors. The...

    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...

    Sometimes Im Too Nice,

    People Tend To Think They Are Better Than Me .. Just because I say "thanks" and "sorry" doesn't mean i'm weak .. It means I have manners ..

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    More than that, I work at least daily on
