Keep On The Sunny Side

 There's a dark and a troubled side of life
        There's a bright and a sunny side too
        Though we meet with the darkness and strife
        The sunny side we also may view

        Keep on the sunny side,  always on the sunny side
        Keep on the sunny side of life
        It will help us every day it will brighten all our way
        If we keep on the sunny side of life

A popular American song originally written in 1899 by Ada Blenkhorn  with music by J. Howard Entwisle

May 12th - Love brightens every day

The cheerful live longest in years, and afterwards in our regards. Cheerfulness is the off shoot of goodness.

Christian N. Bovee

Looking to the bright side of life benefits all we think and do.  We must pay attention to every thing that matters because everything is interconnected.  It helps us to gain a love of life to share with others.

One must put all the happiness one can into each moment

Edith Wharton

Unhappiness is something we’ve all felt at some point in our lives.  We cannot control what happens but we can control our attitude.  The choices we make and our willingness to accept whatever happens determines our happiness.  

The best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer everybody else up

Mark Twain



I like that song about the sunny side of the street. A wonderful way to start the day. Love your quote, "We must pay attention to every thing that matters because everything is interconnected." This is indeed true.

There is seldom a mistake when we meet the person who lives on the sunny side, and it is such a joy in this world.

It is so true we can control our attitude, even if the circumstances around us are not ideal. Always good to take a walk on the sunny side and stay on that path!
