    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    Appreciating Being Alive And Part Of The Great Big Whole

    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!
