I've come to a point where I realize that being positive *in every area* is changing the way I perceive my life. It is helping me grow as a person, accept the inevitable, and find joy in the small things that make life special. Having the glass half full heals the soul and allows others to feed off of the newfound energy. Metaperceptions are lifted, and smiles can not be stopped! It is amazing how just telling yourself {silently, in a whisper, or in a yell} that you WILL have a good day - or that you are thankful for your blessings is an instant attitude ajustment.

Absorb the day - really take the time to observe details....the smell of your morning coffee (or in my case...morning, afternoon, and night coffee!!!!), pick a few leaves native to your surrounding and put them on display in a cute frame, become a tourist in your hometown and discover a little hole in the wall full of brilliance, thank a Soldier or thank a cop, introduce yourself to someone new, change up the daily routine, pick out a funky new toenail polish *you know, electric blue just because you've always wanted to* pick up a piece of trash and put it in the trashcan, use perfumes and lotions that compliment your mood, catch fireflies and put them in a jar like you did as a kid, hug your family and tell them you love them every day, pray hard, give, become selfless, exercise patience, exercise your mind, exercise your body, curl up with a good book by a pumpkin & spice candle *because it feels good*, BE who you've always wanted to be!!!
