Now that I have been released to get my thyroid surgery I am turning my mind to the positive side of life. I don't have to worry about tests, I've completed them all. I can now concentrate on relaxing until the day I have my surgery. I have always tried to live my life fully and not sweat the small stuff. There are so many things in life that we can become anxious about that the little things become unimportant. I tend not to worry about the things I have no control over. I look at the positive side of life. I truly feel that you need to love, laugh, and live every day to the fullest. The following quote explains my philosophy of life. "Let life be an adventure. Live your life to the fullest, unfettered by fear of the ghosts and goblins of what might occur. Calamity and death happen as well to those who hide from life as to those who squeeze every drop of zest from it." by Jonathan Lockwood Huie How do you live your life. Are you looking at the sunny side of life?

@marlina I am so glad to hear that. A positive mind can accomplish so much more than a negative one.

I wake up everyday with happy thoughts and start my day right. If something not good happens, I always look at the bright side of it.

I had to practice looking on the sunny side of life, but that practice was well worth the effort.

I love hearing that you look at the bright side of life! Keep doing that, live life to the fullest and don't worry about everything! I'm always positive and looking at the sunny side of life! Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best! Just smile and have a good day filled with joy and happiness !
