    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 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...

    Dot Dot Dot....I Am Not...but I Am...

    It truly doesn't seem to matter what you may be going through when times are rough or sad, as I have found that depending on your thought process the following may or may not apply. We all can fill in the dot, dot dot on a case by case basis. I Am Not...but I Am... I can't bare...

    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...

    I Believe

    This simple statement of belief in Don Williams' song "I Believe in You" offers all the hope and positive spirit I need on most days.  This song has been a part of my life for the past 20 years, and I just wanted to share it with anyone who might be interested in a simple song...

    If I am in your circle

    or you are considering adding me to your circle, its important that you know this. I am not a negative guy. I stress this because I do share about some of the difficulties I have faced and still face with Adult ADD. I do this not because I need to vent but so that maybe...

    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...

    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.

    Two dogs walk into the same room at separate

    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...

    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...
