Cheerful and Happy…does it work?

“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.” – Martha Washington
I am a huge believer in the power of having a positive attitude.  It creates a reaction of positive thoughts, feelings, and actions.
How has having a positive attitude helped you in your life?

Lesson from my mother’s office

I saw this quote posted on one of the cabinets in my Mothers office today.

“To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy, is to set our own conditions to the events of each day.  To do this is to condition circumstances, instead of being conditioned by them.”  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Remember…We may not be able to control our circumstances, but we can ALWAYS control how we respond to them.

Thanks for the reminder today Mom 🙂
