May 25th - the power of positive thinking 

Live life to the fullest and focus on the positive.

Matt Cameron

The way we think influences the way we feel And the way we feel determines the quoliy of our actions and behaviors. If the thoughts we are thinking are healthy, empowering and positive so will our lives be.

It’s all about focusing on what you want, not on what you don’t want. Don’t focus on your problems or headaches.

We have to train our brains to stay away from what bothers us and focus on what we love and want to have happen in our lives.  

There is always a lesson in everything that happens to us.  Its wise to look for them and learn from them.  When we do that we learn that nothing happens to us, but it happens for us.  

Life gives us lessons so we can grow and learn.  A great way to develop positive thinking is to express your gratitude for everything that happens.You build a healthy habit of looking for things to appreciate.  And when you taste the joy of being grateful, you will no longer waste your time and energy on stressful chaotic and painful thoughts, people and experiences.

Life is just to short to be anything but happy.  Make peace with the idea that everything in life happens for a reason.  We are not in control of anything except for our attitude toward the things that happen to us.

When we allow ourselves just to be, to go with the flow and not against it, we’ll return to balance and order and harmony. Life was never meant to be a struggle and your thoughts were never intended to master your life. You were ! 

Delete the negative, Accentuate the positive!

This sure holds true for what Tom and I are going through with the patio project ... or, I should say 'non project.' He's been so stressed. Yet, travelling to Birmingham yesterday and having a pleasant lunch made all the difference in his mood. And mine, too. Sometimes you just have to take your mind off what you can't control.

It's all in our attitude! :)
