Happy Spring everybody.
If  it is not springtime in your world, please know it will return.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~Hal Borland
I do apologize for not being active on my site, as my computers are sick.
My desktop is getting repaired and my laptop is on the slow side.

It makes for frustrating moments at the keyboard.  ;) 

Thank-you for your patience with me and all your kindness.
Have a beautiful week.

See it Differently

“Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different.”
– Katherine Mansfield

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.” – Dr. Wayne W Dyer

Have a terrific weekend and try to have a positive attitude towards life.

We Just Might

“If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction.” ~Martin Kornfeld

It is feeling more and more like Spring has arrived in my world. The blossoms are out and the sun is shining real warm. I took this photo while on my walk this afternoon. I love the sounds and smells of Spring.

It would be beautiful to see more acts of kindness in our daily lives.

One kind word can change someone’s entire day.

Encourage someone.

Smile.

Give someone a hug.

Listen.

Say, “I love you” to someone you love.

Say, “please” and “thank-you”- and really mean it.

Kindness is contagious.

Have a really nice weekend and don’t forget to share some kindness.

Make it a Habit

Motivation gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

It never gets easier, you just get better.

I am an active baby boomer and only want to inspire others to be active as they get older.

If I am not at the gym, I am enjoying the outdoors. I love to do some brisk walking and a whole lot of running.

Exercise builds self-esteem.

If you are not into exercising, I strongly recommend that you give it a try.

Exercise lifts your mood. Grab some endorphins. 

It works wonders for me.

Exercise prevents muscle loss as we age.

Stay strong as you can!  

I may not be the strongest, but I am working my hardest!   ;)

Optimism

“Optimism is the Faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”  Helen Keller

About Helen Keller

American author and activist Helen Keller was born in Alabama on June 27, 1880; she became blind and deaf after a childhood fever.

When she was 7, Ann Sullivan famously coaxed her out of her sullen, angry shell and taught her to communicate.

From then on, Keller took on the world. She graduated from Radcliffe, traveled the world visiting sweatshops and speaking out for the powerless, helped found the ACLU, and wrote eleven books. She died on June 1, 1968.

“What is very difficult at first, if we keep on trying, gradually becomes easier.” Helen Keller

I have always admired Helen Keller.

It May Alight Upon You

“Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” ~Helen Keller

Have a terrific Sunday!   :)
