    "Having a bad day? It’s okay.

    YOU are okay. But now you’re a little stronger than you were yesterday. Put your hand on your heart. Feel that? That’s called ‘a purpose'. You’re here today for a reason. Don’t give up and don’t give in. And above all, don’t let one or two dark clouds cover...

    An Intro.

    I see so many negative people these days.

    From online to just in the store. It's sad, there are so many positive things happening everyday! New life, raining in places that need it, you waking up alive. Try to find one positive thing everyday rather than focusing on all the bad things that could happen or the negative...

    Sometimes It's Hard

    Sometimes I feel like it's harder than it should be, to focus on the positives.  Maybe I'm around too many critical people.  There are times when I feel as if I will never please anyone, that I can't do things that are "right" or "good enough." The one thing I do to make this...

    This was my view for most of today.

    Pretty bleak. Grey. Chilly. Dull. Windy. But I was awestruck at the beauty of the sky, and now and again glanced at the cloud formations, seeing all kinds of things as the huge clouds shifted around. A sense of wonder on a wintry day. Saw a man struggle with his umbrella...

    A lecturer asked his students to count how many

    Tired Of Being Negative

    I always see the worst in myself, and the best in others. I'd like to balance things out a little more- see others for what and who they really are, and see myself as something besides a monster. I'm working on it, and I just happen to know a wonderful person who makes me believe...
