Chapter 1, Page 26, Book 10


If someone were to ask me when was the best day of my life, I would have to say today!

Today is what I have, so I must make the most of it.

Life’s journey isn’t always easy and so I’ve made a list to help me to enjoy it along the way

It’s essential that you relax and take care of yourself. It can be as simple as a bubble bath or lighting candles. How about a long walk or a phone call to a good friend? Perhaps a nap, a massage or a shopping spree is in your future.

Have an attitude of gratitude- even when things are not going the way that you planned

Focus on making others happy. If you treat everyone the way that you would want to be treated, your joy will be increased

Don’t take yourself too seriously. Humor is one of the most common traits that people who live to be over 100 years old have. Don’t forget to laugh.

Never stop learning. I think that reading is one of the best forms of continuing your education

Take time to enjoy a rainbow, the beauty of a child, or a sunset. Your positive attitude will be contagious!

It’s terrific Tuesday! Remember good things are coming your way . Try seeing the good today , it is there if we take the time to look for it!

‘On Ya’-ma
