Fav Quote Friday | Body and Spirit: How To Stay Positive and Happy - Despite Difficulties


After a quite challenging months, I've realized that 
over the past few years,
(and due to the constant effort I put into making it happen)  
I have been able to change 
my reaction to difficulties 
from one of 'oh no,
 I'm doomed' to one of
'ok, what are we going to do about it.'

and I found that actively seeking 
the comfort of friends
makes a huge difference;
not as much in the things that happen, 
but in the way I feel.


 "Whether you think you can, 
or think you can't,
either way, 
you're right. 
~Henry Ford

 the most wasted of all days 
is one without 
~E.E. Cummings

LIVE simply.
DREAM big.
BE grateful
GIVE love
LAUGH lots!

Always Remember:
you are braver than you believe, 
stronger than you seem, 
smarter than you think,
twice as beautiful
as you've ever imagined.

wishing you a positively beautiful day!


  1. Hi Stephanie,

    For several months, I have been helping another family member with many serious health problems. And that caregiving will continue probably for a good part of May.

    Your "Find Beauty in Everything" is very positive, but sometimes I find it hard to stay positive. I just keep trying.

    I hope your challenges have not been too serious and that by now you have overcome them.

  2. Dear MikeB - Sorry to hear of your difficult situtation. True - it is often quite difficult to stay positive. But you have already found one of the secrets to making it happen; you just keep trying.
    Mine are merely a bump in the road, in the big scheme of things, and I am working to smooth out the road ahead, thank you!

  3. Glad to hear yours is only a bump. Hope the road ahead is indeed smooth.
