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! :)

I discovered a great blog out there by someone who was concentrating on being Nice and doing Nice things. I love that idea because it is the ultimate positive act to be nice to others. I've added her to my sidebar so whenever you want to get some great ideas on being Nice you can just click on over and visit her. Her Name is Melissa and she also collects stories about Nice things.

Kind acts are very powerful! Kudos to you Melissa and here are some flowers for you:

Changing Fields

You may wonder what is so positive about these Soccer Fields? Two things...1) I was out for a walk getting some exercises and decided to walk over to where my daughter first learned how to play soccer when she was five years old. About a 15 minute photography walk...(that includes stopping to take photos along the way)....my destination was helping me to stay healthy so that's a plus! and 2) These fields used to be all grass and mud when she was learning to play soccer. I managed her team one year at these fields when she was on the Wildcats team. Seems like it was only yesterday...but now she is 23 and these fields have been transformed. She didn't have the benefit of these three now astroturf style fields. I can't recall the exact name of the turf here but it's not muddy at all. The great thing is that they are now truly first class for the soccer teams that play here...the second plus.

Things change and isn't it great when they change for the better? That's what happens when people champion good things. Without the force of someone's good idea and will to make it happen these fields would not exist today! Yay for those with good ideas and the will to transform their ideas into reality....that is the real plus and message of these fields. Maria

What we believe determines many things about us...our character, our future, our destiny. I especially like this entry by a friend blogger, Sharon:

This photo was taken when I visited Ixtapa, Mexico. When I look at it I find it easy to believe in each day as a unique promise of light and hope...:)

Norman Vincent Peale - A Positive Thinker

Some of you may know of Norman Vincent Peale. He was one of those positive thinkers who believed that an optimistic attitude was essential to a happy life. I happen to agree. It makes a huge difference. Having a good attitude about things is not always easy and sometimes we are who we are: grumpy, hurt, abused or even abusive to others. It's human nature that we do things reacting emotionally without thought. However, since we can't change others without them wanting the change we can do something else. We can change ourselves...if only we want to do it. I recently bought a 2009 calendar with the theme of 'The Power of Positive Thinking' quotes by Norman Vincent Peale....Here is one quote that I thought was profound:

"Select a few people to be particularly kind to today, those you were a little harsh with yesterday".

This I think would be the epitomy of a random act of kindness.....sometimes this is just sending that belated birthday card or note or remembering to thank someone for a thoughtful gesture. Acts of omission can be hurtful too......we can turn that around by remembering. The quote applies in all sorts of situations. I like to think that we should try to always be kind with our words, thoughts and deeds. Wouldn't it be a better world if everyone did that?

I believe we are all connected with some kind of energy or invisible force. When we do anything we impact someone else. It's almost impossible not to do that, from what I've observed. Every act, every work, or communication has an impact, whether large or small. I figure I will try to make that impact a positive one.

Dreams of a Warmer Place - Big Stress Buster

I'm dreaming of a warmer place! This sunset photo on the waves was taken in a much warmer place...Mexico! Almost every night on our vacation earlier this year we would get to see these magnificent sunsets over the water after a nice warm day. I think that a good stress buster is to take time to visualize these days, close my eyes, feel the warm breezes, hear the waves of water breaking onto the shoreline and smell the lightly fragranced air. It's a short trip into dreamland but it goes a long way to adding a little warmth to anotherwise cold day!

Always good, always welcome, always relaxing.
A quote for you: 'Live in the Sunshine' - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Make a wish!

Dandelions are very magical..especially when they go to seed....have you ever made a wish with them? When I was small we used to blow them in the wind and wish for fun and toys. Little did we know we were spreading the joy to our neighbors and friends yards as well. Wishes are great to have because they are like dreams. When we visualize what we want we are more likely to get our wishes. Listen not to the naysayers that chirp: 'Wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which one gets fuller faster'.....of course we can't just wish things into being! However, if we don't visualize them somehow then they may have less chance to exist.

The really important part of wishing is to envision what the future will look like with your wish in it and then work backwards to see what needs to happen to make it come true! Once you get to the starting point work forwards....and most importantly don't forget to write it down somewhere visible like a bulletin board or a whiteboard on your refrigerator. Wishes we see each day have a way of coming true! I've seen it happen.

There is power in this so be careful what you wish for.....:)
