Despite the fact that I may have a cold this week, and some weird random lower back pain from probably doing something wrong in Body Pump - (Oops) – I am overcome today by the positive thoughts of some wonderful people. And I thought I would share them on this hump day.
Two of these are stolen from my friend Brigid – who in turn stole them from someone else. :)
“When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life.” - courtesy of Brigid
And here, an excellent post on what is truly important in life: http://paulocoelhoblog.com/2010/09/08/the-fisherman-and-the-businessman/
It’s not about how many fish you catch or how much money you make, but it’s about the quality of people who you surround yourself with and spend time with in life.
Bringing me to something my very good friend Stephanie told me several months back: “Only surround yourself with people who make a positive impact on your life” It sounds simple enough, but it can be hard to follow. But thanks to many fantastic friends, coworkers and family, new and old, I am so happy to say that I really making that happen these days.
And last – one of my favorite quotes that I have hanging in my cubicle at work:
“Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” Viktor Frankl
If you choose happiness, it will come to you. J
And if you open your heart to new friends, they will find you.
Happy Wednesday All!
