                                 “When life gives you lemons make lemonade!”
I believe the world is changing for the better and this is the best time to be alive. I believe more people believe this that not.   

We can believe it and we can play a part in the positive change. We can maintain our peace of mind requardless of what is going on around us.  We can choose to feel good and do good.

Give up the time you spend in worry, stress and fear and put your time and energy into happiness and gratefulness to be alive.

 If we put our faith in a positive, loving world we have the power to affect everyone around us. I invite you to take time to celebrate you, your life and our world today.  Give yourself a break, lighten up and have fun!

Just in case you need a few suggestions put your party pants on and try a couple of these:

Celebrate life, your health and well being invite others to come to the party!

    Thanks for the post Tess. I agree in particular with exercise. While hard to get started if you’ve inactive for a while, it really does work wonders once you get into the groove of things!

    I like “tell everyone you’re having a great day.” I find that if I do this, even when I’m not having a great day, suddenly the day becomes a little better.

  • Jannie Funster March 13, 2009, 5:42 pm

    Yes, yes and double-triple quadruple yes on this whole list, Tess! This is what we need, not doom and gloom.

    I do not watch the news at all. Do you?

    Thank you.

    Tess,

    I liked your line about catching a great attitude! Spring cleaning works best for me when I really need to feel good. Next best is probably reading a good fiction book where I can get lost in the story, instead of dwelling on my own story!

    Tess, I love your use of these words, right off the bat: believe, faith, and celebrate. And look at the order in which you used them! Cool. Double-cool, because that’s the perfect order for moving forward into happiness.

    Your wonderful list is one that could just go on and on… For as many people who read this, there could be 50 more things in 2 seconds flat that could be added—-and isn’t that great! Some people could look at your list and pooh-pooh it, saying it’s silly, there’s no time, they’ve obligations… They’re the ones who need the list the most. Your list describes simple things in life that are exactly what ENRICH life. Yea for you! (I bet you are just the funnest mom and grandma!!)

    btw, I did try the afternoon at the library idea but a hoeless guy kept following me around and eventually asked me for date. Yikes!

    You are very right. This is a great time to be alive. I believe that we are going through a huge shift in our society. More and more people are starting to awaken and realize that there is more! We are perfect beings with the ability to create our own circumstances. Thanks for this post.

    Hi Tess! Thanks for all those nice suggestions, maybe I could try one of those today. Just reading them helps me envision what good times I could have by spending time on simple activities that lift us up from boredom and from being too serious in life.

    HI there Tess – I quite agree that the world is changing for the better! It’s all a matter of what we are perceiving, I think. Love your list!

    Cheers – Robin
