Anything and everything you could think of that you feel has improved or changed your life. Little things or big things. Examples could be, take a bubble bath, feng shui your bedroom, a saying you tell yourself, etc.

There will always be something posative out of every situation. I have this weird way of finding the posative in EVERY situation. It helps me get through the really dark times to find something good in any of it. Even if I just tell myself, that which does not kill me will make me stronger.

Use extremely reliable birth control unless you are 100% certain that you want a child, your partner wants a child and both would be good parents. Oops is not a good reason to reproduce.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Leo Buscaglia

Never date your (guy)friends.

Physical exertion cures sorrow and anger.

Get as much human contact as possible, good, bad, ugly, beautiful, and LEARN from it!

Make people earn your love and loyalty.

Be a brick wall of protection for the people and animals under your care.

Always keep your house clean enough to have guests.

"Bloom where you're planted."


My husband and I both tend to think, Life will be better when....


Just recently I have adopted this new motto to help me make the most of each situation and be the best I can be NOW.

Accept yourself unconditionally.

If you're suffering, look for whatever it is that you're stuffing out of sight. It's probably something you don't want to think about. Be fearless, bravely think about it!

I used to have a signature that said something like, "how you spend your days is how you spend your years". That isn't the quote exactly, and darn it, I can't find it. Regardless, it's a great concept to keep in mind, especially hear at MDC!!

You are stronger than you think you are.

Sometimes we can think too much. Suck it up. Deal with it. Move on with life.

Keeping busy helps.

Do not wait forever for thing to be "just right" to go after what you want. "Just right" rarely happens and you will wait forever.

Have things in your house you find beautiful.

Find a form of activity you love - making time for it will be easier

Spend oodles of time doing fun stuff with your kids.

learn when to let go - on big issues and small.

Do not overdrink or smoke - both are so not worth it.

Embrace nature!

Every day thank God for being alive.

Keep a gratitude journal. This has been life changing for me. I just jot down little things every day. On the bad days, I go back and look at previous years' journals. Then I know that it's gonna be all right.

Great thread.
