Daily, in my personal email, I get a short little uplifting, inspirational message sent to me that I try to remember throughout the day.  It's not easy most days - I'm prone to negativity and constant bickering in my head, and it's an ongoing struggle to pull my thoughts back to more encouraging, peaceful ones.  I don't know if any of you also have this struggle, but I'd like to start sharing the messages I get with you all in the hopes it might just make your day a little brighter!  (Really, y'all...you won't see this side of me for long, so just indulge me. LOL.  The old me will be back here venting soon enough laugh)

Edited:  Oy Vey!  Why can't I copy & paste?

Be The Positive Difference - by Jacob Samuel

When it’s difficult to be positive, that’s when being positive can make the biggest difference. When you don’t feel like being focused and disciplined, that’s when focus and discipline can profoundly improve things.

Just because conditions are extremely challenging, doesn’t mean you have to be negative about them. You have an opportunity to make a positive difference, and the best way to do that is to be the positive difference.

Let your attitude be based on the best possibilities, rather than dictated by the worst problems. When things are not they way you’d like them to be, then be completely different than the way things are.

Take it upon yourself to be the positive difference. Focus your energy on forging your way forward, and make the choice to take everything else in stride.

If everything were perfect, you’d have nothing useful to do. Be truly thankful for the opportunity to be useful, and vigorously seize that opportunity.
Be the difference, see a better world, and work to bring that better world to life. Be the difference, and make the positive difference that you’re here to make.

Help Make the World - by Jacob Samuel

Your laughter will inspire the world today. Let it ring loudly and often.

Your thankfulness will give life its beauty today. Your love makes the entirety of existence worth all the trouble.

Your actions will make life richer today. Your thoughts and words and feelings will bring new substance to the wonder that is life.

Your awareness will inform and improve things. Your curiosity will make a whole new set of experiences possible.

Whatever you do will matter very much, going far beyond you and coming back in wonderful ways you cannot even imagine. So do, and do, and do some more, with authentic joy and boundless, delighted generosity.

Your life will help make the world what it is today. Live it for all it can be, and more.

Thanks.  Keep sharing.

We lost two prize koi fish this week.   I'm sick about it and a little afraid that if two are sick, what about the others?    Your quote was helpful.

Feel Life Getting Better - by Jacob Samuel

Are your feelings held hostage by an uncaring, unpredictable world? They don’t have to be.

Are you joyful only when certain things happen, and sad when other things happen? There is a much better way.

Yes, negative things will happen and it is natural to be disappointed by them. Wonderful things will happen, and it is great to express joy.

But you don’t have to let the negative things keep you down. And you don’t have to hope or wait or beg for the good things in order to be joyful.

You can feel the way you choose to feel, no matter what may be going on around you. That doesn’t mean you are uncaring, but rather that you are intentional in the way you care.

Make positive use of that intention to choose the feelings that will improve the situation for everyone. Feel life getting better, act on your feelings, and make your world a more positive place.
