Gratitude in Advance

1st August 2011 | 0 Comments

Gratitude in advance is the most powerful creative force in the universe. – Neale Donald Walsch Gratitude in advance. What a concept. I find it hard enough to be grateful for what I do have, because what I do have isn’t always what I want. Of course, if you’re grateful in advance for what you […]

My Own Personal Thoughts and Growth

31st July 2011 | 0 Comments

I was  reading this post over at The Daily Love, and it was like getting hit over the head with an anvil a la Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.  Parts of it were like reading my own life story.  Think Positive 30 started out on Live Journal.  One of my dear friends and […]

Positivity in the Grocery Store

I really need to share this with all of you.  Last night, I was in the grocery store, and I was NOT happy about it.  It was late, and I had been ready for bed when I realized that there was not enough milk for morning.  Plus, I wanted nothing more than to go upstairs […]

The other day, I read this blog post called You Give What you Get and Get What You Give at  and it really resonated with me.  Because I work with kids, I see a lot of selfish attitudes all day long.  This is in part because their teenagers, but also, the kids I work […]

I had an incredibly insanely busy weekend.  I’m a single parent and as such, all the to-ing and fro-ing of my kids falls to me.  And let me say, they are very busy kids.  I was sitting down a little while ago, queuing up the daily positive thoughts for the week and to be honest, […]

Why Blog, journal or keep a diary

10th September 2009 | 0 Comments

I’ve had a lot to say this week, but oddly, I haven’t said a thing.  Why?  Because the things I’ve had to share are painful.  I hurt badly, but in the pain there are positives.  And that is why it is very helpful to blog or journal or whatever you choose to call it.  Sometimes, […]

Sometimes you need a swift kick in the tookus

I’ve been in kind of a gloomy, depressing mood lately.  Okay, let me be completely honest, I’ve been MISERABLE.  Nothing I’ve done has een able to pull me out of the gloomy mood.  I honestly tried everything I could think of.  Nothing worked.  Now I receive many different motivational type things on a daily basis, and […]

A big part of looking for the positives is being grateful for what you have.  Stop focusing on what you don’t have and celebrate what you do have.  Be grateful from the top of your head, to the tips of your toes.  It is such a great mood enhancer.  When you get up in the […]
