Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results. Willie Nelson
Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don't give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people. Tena Desae
In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision. Dalai Lama
We all feel down now and again. The more life seems to beat us up, the harder we fight to pull ourselves up out of the doldrums, to find positive in our lives. Sometimes we find life easier if we give in to negative thoughts, expect the worst, keep plodding along in life. We have the power. We can give the power to the negative or we can take our power back. Today we take our power back :1. The day begins, we step in a mud puddle as we walk our dogs. Dang, shoes wet, we start to cuss, when suddenly, we turn our thoughts to 5 years old, we allow ourselves to stomp more into the mud puddle, splashing, dancing under the rainbow left in the sky after the rains, dogs having a ball, splashing with us. Yes we have to now stop before going in, to hose down everyone and everything, but we are left laughing as pups shake off the shower waters. 2. Work seems to be stressful, everyone in the office seems to be having tantrums, or nose In the air. So at lunch, we take the notion to get comfort food, hit the Baskins and Robbins, then buy an ice cream cake for the whole office. Everyone smiles at the Snoopy dog on the top! 3. Kids are screaming, husband having to work late, dogs need out, and supper will be delivery pizza again, a ton of paperwork brought home from office. Eek! Another negative thoughts creep in, yet as we settle the kids down with crayons and paper, asking for them to draw happy thoughts, husband rushes in to kiss as even the pizza comes, soft music playing in the air, we can be thankful for the chaos of our family life. There is a positive and a negative to all in life. Smile we will find our dreams
Animal totems: Puffer Fish: otherwise called balloon or blowfish. A warm water totem, Bro Puffer defends himself by sipping water and air in quickly to “blow” up rounder, bigger than normal. His sharp thorny sides then can hit the danger with poison to defend himself. His totem reminds us that we may feel insignificant, but can stand up for ourselves, love ourselves despite our flaws, while his medicine shares that we are strong in our own power.
