Chapter 7, Page 13, Book 17



I try to walk on the sunny side of the street.

Tim McGraw

Positive or negative

As the Sun shines upon my heart, so may my heart shine upon others

Walking on the sunny side of life is a state of mind.  Whether you choose to walking on the sunny side or shady side we all have one thing in common, the sun is still shining.

No matter where we are or what our state of mind, if we raise ourselves high enough, the sun is always shining.

We can choose to to be positive even when the sun isn’t shining.  Don’t let others force you into choices you are not comfortable with.  We cannot change our circumstances, but we have total control on the way we respond to them.

On the sunny side, we find vulnerability, risk, fun, tolerance, optimism, home, connection, love, contribution and being.  Its only across the road or outside the door. Every single day we wake up we get to choose.  

When you can see the light through the clouds, always seek the sunny side.

Be a friend,
You don’t need money:
Just a disposition sunny.

That is so true that no matter how we feel or what we might be going through, the sun is still shining. Even if we don't see it behind the clouds. Great reminder to living on the sunny side of things!

Edgar Guest can always say the facts succinctly.
True, I do like the sunny side of the street. (Now it is on my mind. LOL Not a bad thing!)

Thank you, Ma, for giving me a mantra on which to hang my conscience... just 6 more months!
