Chapter 5, Page 9, Book 14

When you live with positive purpose, a positive attitude and positive expectations, you’ll make positive, life enriching choices. Those choices will reliably create a life of great fulfillment. What you think, what you feel, what you say and what you do all matter very much. In every moment, with every choice, you move your life in a specific direction.  Make the commitment to always make that direction a good and meaningful one. Choose wisely, and live magnificently.
Ralph Marston

Day 19 of 50:. Throw some water balloons!

Balloons represent happiness don’t they?  They are always fun to see and fun to play with too.

Don’t let People Pop Your Balloons

Dream big, laugh hard, sing loud, travel everywhere.
Live life everyday not only like it is your last, but also like it is your first.
See life with wide-eyed enthusiasm.
If life becomes mundane, change it.
Keep clear of people who drag you down.
Surround yourself with people who support the life you are living.
Be open to sharing what you learn with others. At the same time be open to letting those go who attempt to bring you down.
Love everyone, but trust in the love you have for yourself.
Live as you say you want to live.
Act as you want to act.
Be who you are and strive for the changes you want to see.
Always be yourself.
Make mistakes and learn from them.
Throw perfection out the window, and just do the best you can.
Love with all of you, and when you do get hurt, love yourself even harder.
This is your life and you choose how to live.

1653.  for warmer weather to go without socks
1654.  for things to repurpose and use a little differently

So true about balloons Ma! One can't help but smile when they see some, especially a bunch of them in someone's car because you know they are going to some celebration :)

I like the idea of throwing some water balloons, especially on a hot summer day! That's how they always end Vacation Bible School here, with lots of water balloons for the kids to play with :)
