Positive thoughts for the day

For me, everything is about having a positive attitude! I get asked frequently how I stay positive or what motivates me. I believe that it is a choice that I make everyday to wake up and greet the day with a smile.  I love to read and save inspirational quotes that give me something positive to mull over. I'd love to share a few with you.

I don't expect to be happy all the time…
It's got on beyond that somehow.

I will need them all.” Anne Morrow Lindbergh from Gift from the Sea

  1. Great list, Peg…ever thought of working on a list site?

    It is the one choice we really have in life – our attitude. We can’t much control what goes on in our lives, but we can completely control how we react to it! Getting up every day and thanking God for the blessings in your life is a GREAT way to begin!

    1. List site? What is that? 😀

      Thankfully I have lots of friends with wonderful attitudes, like you, that make it easy to find joy everyday.

  2. Peggy, that’s an awesome list – a couple are new ones to me, even though – like you – I seek out positive messages wherever I can find them. Here’s another I’d add, from Dale Carnegie: “Be the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.” Knowing you makes this Carnegie challenge hard! 

    1. That really is such a sweet thing to say Ted – you are so kind to me. Dale Carnegie had many wise things to say!

      I appreciate your commenting and sharing my post.


  3. Peggy,
    A very inspiring list; I’m inspired to live them too – printing to share with my small group today and honored to say I received from you. Thanks

  4. Some say life is 10% what happens, 90% how you react to others you bump in to. Not everyone is going to be like you, agree with you. Love them any way.
