    I agree, appreciating the positivity around us and even the fact that we are still alive can make us feel grateful and thankful to be alive. We should never take for granted the little things in life.

    A beautiful quote and thanks for sharing!...It is true that Life is beautiful that is why we should enjoy it while we are still in this world. Live each day loving yourself and other people and no hatred in our hearts and always live a peaceful life.

    We should do what we love and when that happens the problems go away and we become different, better people.

    That is a good post, because how often do we fail to see the good in our life and only concentrate on the negatives? It's the whole I can't see the forest for the trees mentality. We have to work on seeing every day as a gift. There are lots of things we can feel grateful for in our lives.

    When we have the capacity to see beauty in the little things we are definitely going in the right direction.

    I think that taking time to smell the roses is one of the options that you are looking forwad to. It is just one of the many ways you can stay positive. Even the bad things that happen to you you can try to look at in a positive vein, as an opportunity for learning or personal growth.

    I know what you mean there, but I am allergic to roses ahah! :D

    We should try to focus on what we are doing, in that way we will spend less energy.

    Here is an interesting thought about honesty. It is from Warren Buffet, one of the richest man on earth. Warren Buffet says, "Honesty is very expensive gift, don't expect honesty from cheap people."

    Haha, that's something slightly different because if I stop to smell the pizza I will be tempted to eat it! :D
