Keys to a Happy Life

Compliment three people everyday.!
Watch a sunrise.
Be the first to say "Hello."
Treat everyone as you want to be treated. Never give up on anybody; miracles happen.
Remember someone’s name.
Pray not for things, but for wisdom and courage.
Be tough-minded, but tender hearted.
Be kinder than you have to be.
Don’t forget that a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.
Keep your promises.
Learn to show cheerfulness even when you don’t feel it. A positive attitude is a choice.
Remember that overnight success usually takes 15 years.
Leave everything better than you found it.
Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do.
When you arrive at your job in the morning, let the first thing you say brighten everyone’s day.
Don’t rain on other people’s parades.
Don’t waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
Keep some things to yourself and don’t promote havoc by backstabbing people you love.
Enjoy a cookie from time to time. :)

A Man's Best Friend

I seen this picture today on MSNBC "Animal Tracks" and it said "Paying respects"
A dog sits for a second consecutive day next to the grave of her owner who died in the week's catastrophic landslides in Brazil, at the cemetery in Teresopolis, near Rio de Janiero.
What loyal friends..... I believe dogs are great examples to follow: We could learn things like:
To always greet our loved ones with great enthusiasm when they come home.
Take lots of naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

Just Be

(bē) v. to exist; have life; completely

From this moment forward…I stop the blame game and excuses. I am responsible for my life and for where I am today. I cannot blame the people and circumstances in my past, and I refuse to hide behind my past mistakes...

” Prayer for Peace”

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

“The power of gratitude” Recent studies have shown that practicing gratitude leads to a healthier, more fulfilling, others-centered life. People who focus on what they are thankful for (versus those who dwell on hassles and frustrations) are in a better place than those who don’t. They are less likely to get sick and are more active, hopeful and thoughtful of other people Yep gratitude is where it’s at…..

so I am going to try at least once a week to post everything I am Grateful for......
