Am I POSITIVE? - Yes, I am!!!!! Optimism is good for everyone! It's not just a fantasy...because I can make it a reality.

I love fantasy art..it is so inspiring and gives me lots of ideas....Thus it is like Positive Art which helps me visualize the best in things around me. Positive movies, paintings, songs, buildings, poems, stories, ..and more.

In keeping with my theme:I will attempt to always keep the sunshine in my heart and share with others the cool breezes of my smiles as much as possible.

I will Visualize the good things and dream how to be amazing so I can make it a reality! :)

Goals and Spirit!

Here is a little uplifting entry ...

This was one of those photos that I took not realizing the duck was going to fly....:) Turned out nice.
The reason this is in here twice is to test the difference between what is uploaded directly to blogger and what is loaded from photobucket....the bigger one with better resolution came from Photobucket...the littler version was the same file but uploaded from my hard drive. Good to know....I can resize to a smaller size without losing resolution but I can't enlarge the smaller and still have it look decent. Blogger must resize....
Another thing I found out was that you know how some photos show up on the sidebar when you add the gadget to keep track of the blogs you follow and some photos don't show up? The ones uploaded from my harddrive directly to blogger show up...the photo bucket photos don't....so if you want to have your photo show up as an icon use the ones from your harddrive...they take up space on blogger so that could be a drawback. Not that much space though....

Here is a little Haiku too:
Lift off in the Park
Wings aloft for this ducky
Rocky beginning
This is a month of spirits...October! I leave you with the Spirit of the Duck....makes you want to fly..doesn't it? Or at least to have wings. It does take spirit to accomplish goals. Time and lots of steps and little goals to accomplish the really big goals. So remember to draw on your spirit to help you to get things done! It starts with a little enthusiasm...then it graduates to SPIRIT!
I began framing some of my photos with black and including a quote. I had a goal of making a calendar and I collected quotes little by little and voila...I had 12 photos and then I ordered a calendar with them from a photo place. I look at it every day at work.....it's so inspiring.

Change - I'm Positive about this

Change is the one thing I can say with absolute certainty that I am positive about. It happens and there is nothing we can do about it...so why not take the time to enjoy it as it happens. Whether watching the colors of the leaves change, or listening to them rustling in the winds as they fall from the many trees, or feeling the cool autumn winds blowing through the air carrying the leaves fluttering here and there..

With the Autumn season comes change and a hope for something new and different. It somehow all makes sense in the grander scheme. If we stop and take time to enjoy it and embrace it we can learn to accept it. The human being is such an adaptive creature. Every season we adapt, we find ways to enjoy the change. That is the secret of change..it can be both a curse and a blessing...it is up to us to decide whether we swear the curse or count the blessing.

The change of seasons is a great reminder.....I'm thinking I'll be counting my blessings!

Sunflowers bring sunshine

I'm always happy to get flowers...of any kind. I love flowers because they are so beautiful and they just make me smile. I know that they don't last and that maybe money is better spent on something more practical. I'm not sure how you measure the value of making someone smile for a second, a minute or longer. I think a smile however fleeting is worth a beam of sunshine...at the very least. It seems appropriate to me to call all flowers sunflowers! However, that term does go to some very special flowers that remind us of the sun....the golden rays coming out from the center.

I believe that flowers are full of a positive energy and that when we share flowers with others that we are sharing that energy. You can see this energy because it manifests itself in a smile. So go ahead and give someone some flowers today. It is a burst of positive energy that will leave you both with a happy expression on your faces.....

Flowers are like music for your attitude!

One door opens....

Hello, There is a great saying:

"When one door closes another one opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us" - Alexander Graham Bell.....

Letting go of the past and embracing change can be just that simple...if we let it. Maria

When one door closes...

Hello, all,

I think that this blog will be a lot of great quotes and smaller photos that go with them....vs. my other blog being more of a photo blog.
