I see each day as an opportunity to live positively. When I wake up each morning, I count my blessings. Doing this helps me to have an enjoyable day.
My positive attributes shine through, regardless of my circumstances. I recognize that my blessings result from positive living. When I see those blessings, I am more encouraged to stay on a positive path.
I practice basic social graces when I have the chance. Expressing thanks to someone else has an impact that is often overlooked. I enjoy seeing someone smile when I express my gratitude to them.
I ask instead of demand. People feel important when they realize you are relying on them. They are more willing to help in those situations.
I am a firm believer that I receive what I give out. I am kind to others and receive kindness in return. Some of life’s most precious blessings come when I least expect them.
Self-respect allows me to easily give respect to others. I am aware of my value and how I expect to be treated. I give that same regard to others.
Today, my quality of life is better because I remain positive. I know that being positive helps me to maintain my happiness. I am committed to being a shining example for anyone I come across. I want to do my part to make the world a better place.
1. How do I encourage my children to smile, even when situations are unfavorable?
2. When was a time when I felt discouraged by my circumstances?
3. Do I allow the negative energy from others to dictate how I feel and act? Why or why not?
