Smiles for the Week

A day without laughter is a day wasted.
The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed.

Positive and/or Motivating Thoughts for the Week
My purpose: to lift your spirit and to motivate you.
I'm looking forward to influencing others in a positive way. My message is you can do anything if you just put your mind to it.
A lot of times people look at the negative side of what they feel they can't do. I always look on the positive side of what I can do.
When you are enthusiastic about what you do, you feel this positive energy. It's very simple.
The best thing to do when you find yourself in a hurting or vulnerable place is to surround yourself with the strongest, finest, most positive people you know.
Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
If you are given a chance to be a role model, I think you should always take it because you can influence a person's life in a positive light, and that's what I want to do. That's what it's all about.
