Random Positive Thoughts

Put it out there, it will happen!
This is a truism. When an inspired thought is worked on to the point where it materializes into writing somewhere - anywhere (a dream board, a journal, a list) - chances of it actually coming to pass are great. I have no
science to back this up. Just personal experience. experiences. When we let it be just a good idea and don't process it to the point of writing it down, it slips through. I believe in goal setting, planning, and especially dreaming big.

Separation is temporary.
Whether sending a child to school for the first time, or burying a loved one ... I absolutely know that we will be reunited. I also believe in feeling everything. Feel fun, feel joy, feel excitement ... but go ahead and really truly feel grief, feel pain, feel loneliness. Just don't hang on to the negative emotions. Feel them fully, and then bid them adieu.

Good things really can happen to good people!
It's not always bad things that happen to good people ... so I try to grab the good things and exploit them, bask in them, exaggerate them, dwell on them!

There is rest for the weary.
We just sometimes have to demand it. Not only will we tired people feel better, but everyone will like us more if we get our rest.

Laughing is good for me. And for you.
So laugh every day. Period.

On a different note:
I've had some good food success lately! And DANG ... I didn't get a picture of last night's dinner! Black bean burgers topped with quinoa salad. It was super-yum! But I did get some pictures of other successes in the food department:

  1. always good to hear you're feeling good!

    hugs :)

  2. OH my heck, those tomato-basil stacks look SO GOOD. Can't wait to try when you get here :) I wonder what they'd be like grilled?

    I really like what you said about getting rest. We really do have to demand it. Thanks for writing this stuff down so that I can come back and read it when I need a pick-me-up. Love you, Mom!
