C'mon Get Happy!

Good morning!  It's the start of another fresh new week.  The possibilities are endless and blessings await!  Someone said (I don't know who and an internet search credits several people) "Each day you are about as happy as you make up your mind to be." That's the truth.  I've learned that we can actually train our minds to think either negatively or positively.  If you constantly think negative thoughts, wish for what you don't have, grumble about what you do have, etc...your mind will learn that as a go-to response and you will become a sad, miserable person.  If, however, you purposely look for the good, count your blessings, and act happy even when you aren't...your mind will learn that as its go-to response and you won't have to act, you will be happy.

To help you smile today:

I kind of felt like this when I woke up.

Well, he always makes me happy.

It'd be a lot quicker than waiting on nature!

True, when you think about it.

So, it was always about the shoes!

Oh my goodness, I had to laugh.
This is the mood of most people on Monday.

Reminds me of my older grandson.
Hey, dream big!

I've got a lot of running to do today.  This morning I have to take my CDL physical forms over to the bus garage.  The mechanic is going to be there since he's back from vacation and the papers need to get filed.  Then this afternoon my daughter and I are meeting with a friend of mine who has generously offered to cut the kids a break on wedding photos....all day for only $300!  Pray my daughter will be receptive and responsible and not choose the expensive photographer and pay way more than she can afford....as long as my friend shows us she can do quality work, that is (and I believe she can).

I'm off to get some breakfast and get moving.  Decide to have a beautiful and happy day my friends!


  1. I try every day to be positive. Love this post, the pictures are hilarious and the baby is adorable!

    1. I try, too. Some days are harder than others, but it's always worth the effort.

  2. If Monday was a person.... that is so funny.
    I needed the laugh for Monday

    1. Yeah, I think I actually snorted over that one!

  3. After a rocky beginning to the work week, I saw these on my phone at lunch and just thanked God for perspective!

    I hope the appointment with your friend-the-photographer was a positive one!

    1. I'm glad you found it encouraging. And thank you, the appointment went well. We had a very nice visit/reunion and I think my daughter has decided to go with her. :)
