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! :)

What makes me happy - Gazebos!

I made a past an entry on what makes me happy and listed well over 20 items... see link: http://areyoupositive.blogspot.com/2009/08/light-your-day-with-smiles.html

One of the items listed was Gazebos! I love them. They make me smile whenever I see them. They remind me of many things like: the Sound of music, of people on their happy wedding days, of carousels and bands playing old time rag tunes, of beautiful craftsmanship, of vacation resorts, of friendly times and happy faces..just to name a few....sunsets and backyards too!

One Heart- Two hands and Audrey Hepburn - Spotlight

Sometimes you run into a soul mate. Someone who might think the same as you and feel about things the same as you do. People who think it's important to bring positive things into the light strike me as soul mates. I recently encountered a blog that I really liked. It is fairly new but the thoughts and ideas are so similar to my thinking I had to spotlight it. I had a comment on my last blog that I followed up on and discovered a very neat lady who has a blog called: One Heart – Two Hands. Her site title happens to have the last part of an Audrey Hepburn poem. I had taped a printout of this poem to my computer wardrobe door a couple of years agoe and it's still there. I love Audrey Hepburn..she is the soul of sophistication and elegance.

Anyone can see this quality in her photos, her movies, her voice. Here is the entire poem which ends with the reference to Two Hands. I am told that Audrey Hepburn favorite poem, by Sam Levensen, when asked to share her "beauty tips", was this one ....It was read at her funeral years later:
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed;
Never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one
the end of each of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
For helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

Thank-you to this wonderful blogger know as One Heart – Two Hands.
I'm thinking why is it that I think a lot of people will visit her site? Why is it that she has something of value to share?

Why is it that Audrey was so kind and elegant? You tell me....
here is a wonderful site with some of her accomplishments and more photos: http://www.princessmonkey.com/audrey/part1.html

It turns out that my wedding dance song came from one of her movies...Breakfast at Tiffany's...the song is "Moon River".....:)
