Positively Wonderful

(I thought my clown bell looked jolly, until
a family member said it just looked creepy!
Oh well ... 'tis the season!)

Three Ways to Improve Your Outlook

Positive Books:

I'm halfway through the new book Change Your Words Change Your Life by Joyce Meyer, and it's a keeper (for me). The longer I live, the more I become convinced that there's definitely something to replacing negative thoughts with positive ones. This book sheds more light on that process:

   

Positive Songs:

Happy talk, keep talkin' happy talk,
Talk about things you'd like to do.
You got to have a dream,
If you don't have a dream,
How you gonna have a dream come true?

Talk about the moon floatin' in the sky

Lookin' at a lily on the lake;
Talk about a bird learnin' how to fly.
Makin' all the music he can make.

Happy talk, keep talkin' happy talk,

Talk about things you'd like to do.
You got to have a dream,
If you don't have a dream
How you gonna have a dream come true?

If you don't talk happy,

And you never have dream,
Then you'll never have a dream come true!

(part of the song Happy Talk from the musical South Pacific by Rodgers & Hammerstein)

Hear Paul McCartney sing "Accentuate the Positive".

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine" ... how do we get a merry heart?  Change our words (and thoughts) to happy talk and accentuate the positive!  Hanging out with ... and learning from ... positive people helps, too.

Have a positively wonderful weekend,
