WOW!!! 2009!!! How can it be?? Where has the time gone??
I am looking forward to what this new year holds with great anticipation, and hope that this little blog of mine might be a bit of sunshine and encouragement to all who visit. To that end, I am going to share happy thoughts, quotes, humor etc. at the beginning of each week. I'll let you know when I have it all together in my head!!
As for me, this year I am making a conscious, deliberate choice...I CHOOSE JOY!! I mean, after all, why do we choose anything else? It just brings us down, and takes away any zeal or motivation we have!! I can't stand feeling like that!! Will you choose joy with me?? Life is really to short to live it any other way. I know things can get yucky, but the attitudes of our hearts can make it so much worse than it needs to be.
I hope you'll choose joy also!! Let me know if you will!! These times we live in are turbulent to say the least. Let's lock arms and each ROCK our own sphere of influence by choosing to love, forgive, laugh, smile, help someone, and be the best we can be!
Here's a quote I love to help get us started in the right direction:
“When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.”
William Arthur Ward
Blessings for a Happy New Year! Know that I so appreciate each of my bloggy friends!!
