Important things to remember as you go through your life!!
-Be thankful and count your blessings for what you have, rather than what you want.

-Don’t be afraid to take risks. If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.
-Every life is a story make yours a best seller.
-Argument is the worst sort of conversation.
-Don’t be offended if someone offers you criticism, appreciate that they cared enough to notice, and respected you enough to tell you.
-The secret to happiness is not in doing what one likes to do, but in liking what one has to do.
-Don’t be negative. If we both think of the glass as 1/2 full, then we’ll make a full cup together!

-All children behave as well as they are treated.
-The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.
-Bad things happen to good people. You must be doing something amazing for the devil to have targeted you.
-A great way to show yourself what is possible is to help someone else to learn to grow and do more than they ever thought they could.
-Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power.
-Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.
-It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.
-Lashing out at someone because of your failure only shows that you are not able to learn from your own mistakes.
-When you consistently maintain a positive frame of mind, you’ll become known as a problem-solver rather than a complainer. People avoid complainers. They seek out problem-solvers.
-I would rather regret the things that I have done than the things that I have not.
-I had no shoes and complained, until I met a man who had no feet.
-Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain.

-Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.
-The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
-First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
-Parents need to fill a child’s bucket of self-esteem so high that the rest of the world can’t poke enough holes to drain it dry.
-To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.
-A reputation for a thousand years may depend upon the conduct of a single moment.
-The best way to persuade people is with your ears – by listening to them.
-Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him.
-Truth fears no questions.
-That’s my gift. I let that negativity roll off me like water off a duck’s back. If it’s not positive, I didn’t hear it. If you can overcome that, fights are easy.
-Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things.
-A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
-You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.
-Treat people as if they are what they ought to be, and you can help them become what they are capable of becoming.
-Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
-The trouble with most people is that they think with their hopes or fears or wishes rather than with their minds.
-If you hear a voice within you saying, ‘You are not a painter,’ then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.
-Don’t let grumps bring you down. Instead bring them up to your level. HAPPY HAPPY!

The Optimist Creed
by Christian D. Larson
Promise Yourself –
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Today You Can
by Catherine Pulsifer
Today you can choose to count your blessings or you can count your troubles.
Today you can live each moment or you can put in time.
Today you can take action towards your goals or you can procrastinate.
Today you can plan for the future or you can regret the past.
Today you can learn one new thing or you can stay the same.
Today you can seek possibilities or you can overwhelm yourself with the impossible.
Today you can continue to move forward or you can quit.
Today you can take steps towards resolving your challenges or you can procrastinate.
You see today the choices are up to you in deciding what you do today.
