the power of positive thinking.

there definitely is power in positive thinking. so, i'm surrounding myself with positive energy, good thoughts and all the warm fuzzies & love you've sent my way. i'm not going to let life get me down. so pull up a chair & read a quote or two. & if i've missed YOUR favorite quote, be sure to let me know. i need all the help i can get. i'm hoping that sending all these positive thoughts out into the universe is going to get me (& a few of you too), through this. in the words of one of my very favorite willie nelson songs: you've got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, don't mess with mister in-between. 

what seems impossible one minute becomes, through faith, possible the next. -norman vincent peale

today is the first day of the rest of your life. -american proverb

we should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or sorting the laundry. -e.b. white

everything happens for a reason. -american proverb

just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly. -anonymous

never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do. -h. jackson brown, jr.

the best is yet to be! -robert browning

never never never give up. -churchill

if you're going through hell, keep going... -churchill

finish each day and be done with it. you have done what you could. some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. tomorrow is a new day. you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -ralph waldo emerson

be the change you wish to see in the world... -gandhi

whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. -goethe

overcome the notion that you must be regular. it robs you of the chance to be extraordinary. -uta hagen

go with a spirit that fears nothing! -homer

when one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. -helen keller

have faith in yourself and in the future. -ted kennedy

believe in yourself and all that you are. know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle. -christian d. larson

it's never too late to be what you might have been. -george eliot

whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. -max ehrmann

do not go where the path may lead. go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. -ralph waldo emerson

find life experiences and swallow them whole. travel. meet many people. go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. try everything. exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life. -lawrence k. fish

whatever you are, be a good one. -abraham lincoln

go into the world and do well. but more importantly, go into the world and do good. -minor myers r. 

life does not put things in front of you that you are unable to handle. -unknown

life isn't about finding yourself. life is about creating yourself. -unknown

i think i can. i think i can. i know i can. i know i can. -the little engine that could

anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. the fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. the trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride. -gordon b. hinckley

"Change Your Mind" by Sister Hazel
(If you're tired of fighting battles with yourself, change your mind).

"Better Days" by Goo-Goo Dolls.

"This is the Stuff" by Carolyn Arrends.

"Crazy Maze" by Des'ree.

"You Get What You Give" by New Radicals.

"There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity; but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity." --Washington Irving

So grateful for the positive thoughts and words of others! It keeps me going, too. *B
