I think we should all do something that makes us in a positive state of mind each day. Today I read a bible verse which tends to help me a lot. I will also be today making sure I laugh with children today. That always helps my mood and lifts me up. What will you do today to stay in a postive mind set?

Every time i close my eyes before i sleep, i say a simple prayer thanking God for all the blessings i had for the day. Every time i open my eyes from sleep, i say a little prayer to thank God for keeping me alive and to guide me through the day. A tight hug and a warm kiss from my wife and kids are enough to keep me going through day to day.

That is so heart warming. I think it is always important to thank God for our blessings. Sometime we get caught up in asking for what we want and forget to thank Him for all we have.

Yeah I agree with obe because we should thank God for all the blessings and for his love and presents. It is so nice to see that in this world of material things we find religious persons as us.

A prayer of gratitude everyday for the life that was given to us should be forever be expressed, day in and day out. As we experience life, i think the right path to happiness and peace would only be achieved with His guidance. Life has no meaning at all without being grateful to the one who provided your existence on earth.

You really need to have these positives. Look at what others said and maybe that will help you find ways to stay positive. I know how hard it is when you have someone that seems to enjoy making our life so negative. Instead of fighting with him turn it around and try to think of something funny about what he is saying. I had lost a lot of weight and yet the one I was with at the time tended to call me names include fat. One day he said it and I burst out laughing and said you can't use that old line anymore it doesn't work. He was so shocked that he said yeah I guess you are right. It totally ended his fighting with me for a time because he couldn't get a reaction from me anymore. So try to find positives to keep yourself happy and only laugh at the silly things he says to you to start a fight. You will be amazed at how silly they sound when spouting off once you do that. You will also get stronger if you are taking care of yourself!

I had a list of things to do before the day ended and I accomplished each of them. Whenever I can do that, I feel like I really accomplished something. By nature, I can't just lay around unless I am sick or just that tired.I can remain stress-free and positive as long as I accomplish something I set out to everyday..

Reading is very good for you and even better if it has positive stories. Delicious food is always a good pick me up!

I did a lot this morning (doing the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, to the hairdresser with my son, looking for an other bike for him I can afford, doing a lot of shoppings for the animals, answering letters/e-mails, making an appointment for one of my daughters because of her skin etc. etc.). I am very tired now so in a few minutes I will take a (relaxing) sunbath and hope I can sleep a bit. Plus I won't cook today since I am too tired for that.

You got a lot done today good for you!! For the bike you might want to look at craigslist you can get some very nice things through there for a good price. Good idea on the sunbath and no cooking that is great that you treat yourself to something nice.

This morning I went by a florist and bought 4 little pots of primulas and this afternoon I am going to plant them in a container with a tulip in the middle which I expect to flower and fill the room with perfume. That is what I have done to lift me up today. The sun is shining so I shall lift my face to that for a little while too. I shall think of Spring which is almost here now and ignore any cold winds that blow in my direction while I am doing it.

Oh I love the idea of planting flowers. That is such a great idea. I may just do that myself this weekend. I am not the best for taking care of plants but what a wonderful thing to start doing. That is sure to brighten up a day. I really want spring to be here and this would be just the ticket to make it seem like it is here!

Every day one positive thing I do for my self is take out of schedule to relax my self. And if time permits I also watch people around me which is very interesting for me and makes me understand more about human behaviours.

excellent idea. I had never thought about all you can learn from watching others. Keep up with the relax time that is really important.

I am going to make a small goal and then I am actually going to work towards that goal. That will make me postive. I think I already have decided on the goal so all that remains is for the day to play out. There are a number of other things I have to do though including go to the dentist which is always a treat. It is tuesday so I was considering taking in a movie as they are cheaper on tuesdays.

well it may beto think in the good things and the funny moments of the day. maybe a nice meal, or a friendly comment or a nice smile, use imagery, Feel the moment as if it were happening rith now, and that exercise will make us feel happier and to think that tomorrow we will have nice persons to meet and that we will get what we want and that mental visualization of nice moments is very good

Well, today, I was able to go to the mall alone. I really didn't want to buy anything aside form the Chocolate Rhumble that promised my sister in law. I missed walking alone. I used to have some time alone. It has been years..... Lovely morning walk indeed.

Everyday i would like to be in a positive state of mind always. So, i would always start my day by praying and reading a verse too. One thing i notice, when i wasn't able to pray in the morning, my day turns out not good.

I will stay happy no matter what. Instead of complaining about even the smallest thing that would irritate me on a normal condition, I will make a positive turn and declare over and over again that happiness is my choice not for today but every single day, and I've proven many times already that as I constantly speak positive and happy things, my state of mind follows through. This is very doable especially when you know how to pray on all occassions and just believe that your day is going to be alright.
