the power of positive thinking.

by @according2kelly on November 9, 2009

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.

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


Totally agree that positive thinking will do wonders. I keep myself surrounded by positive things like inspirational and/or spiritual artthat I collected over the years. Great post! Thanks for sharing.
