Day 154: Change


Day 154: Change, it can be a very good thing! Maya Angelou said,”If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

I think all of us knows someone who always complains. This person is a “buzz kill,” never having anything good to say. It gets tiring for those who have to spend time with people like this and it has got to be tiring for the complainer as well!

Why not change your circumstances? It is a win-win for all concerned! Life is too short to be and feel miserable. Happiness is a choice! It is a false assumption that others can make you happy. Only YOU can make YOU happy! Life is full of unfairness and disappointment, but why wallow in your woes, when you can try a smile and see where it leads. It can’t hurt, but it could certainly help. If you wear a smile, you are sure to get positive feedback from others.

I urge you curmudgeons out there to turn that frown into a smile! If you know a curmudgeon, take them out and “kill them with kindness!”

Day 90 of 365: What makes you happy?


Day 90: What makes you happy? Is there something that you come across or see that immediately makes you smile? That thing for me is flowers, specifically sunflowers. Their large faces to me are so happy and when you take a look at them in nature they all face the sun, like happy little campers! I have heard a quote about bacon that goes “bacon is a gift that pigs give us when we are good.” I say sunflowers are a gift that God gives us when we are good.” Actually He gives us unconditional love, whether we are good or not! So go out and find what makes you HAPPY!
