"Every day, be full of awareness of the beauty around you.
Be full of gratitude for friends and family, for the goodness you find in others, for your health and all you're capable of.
Be full of acceptance of yourself and others - without conditions or judging - knowing that differences and changes make life interesting.
Appreciate the gifts of laughter and fun in your life, and find contentment in knowing that you can always control your ability to look on the bright side." By Barbara Cage.
"There is good in life every day.
Take a few minutes to distract yourself from your concerns; long enough to draw strength from a tree or to find pleasure in a bird's song.
Return a smile; realize that life is a series of levels, cycles of ups and downs; some easy, some challenging.
Through it all, you will learn; you will grow strong in faith; you will mature in understanding.
The difficult times are often the best teachers, and there is good to be found in every situation.
Reach for the good.
Be positive,and don't give up." By Pamela Owens Renfro
