    I have woken up and the day is bright and sunny with a lot of heat but the ocean looks beautiful and I have the courage to get up and face the world again today. Nobody is going to make me feel inferior or small and I am going to succeed at everything that I do today. I am also going to smile and be happy even if I don't feel like it and I am going to be thankful that I get to go to work and I get to smile again. Enjoy your day and do one positive thing for yourself and someone else today! In fact put a positive thought here for others to see

    Wow! I would love to see the view from your room. I miss waking up to the sound of the ocean and the sun streaming down my face every morning. I wish I could go on a vacation again. If I could, I would want to live in a hut just beside the ocean or below the mountain range. Fresh air, clear's totally the best.

    By the way, thanks for the positive vibes. :D

    One of my favorite quotes:

    “When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”
    ― Shannon L. Alder

    Don't seek happiness where you can't find it. If you project positivity happiness will seek you out.

    I woke up a title while ago. Opened the window and sniffed the air. The countryside air is so pure and fresh. I am filled with vigor. I look at the distance. I can see my wheat field. The plants are turning yellow, soon there will be harvest time. Life is beautiful.

    I loved your mantra for the day . Today mine is going to be to stay strong despite some stressful events in my life right now. It's going to be believing in myself, encouraging myself and being kind to myself. It's going to be choosing happiness over stress and seeing the bright side always.
