GOOD THINGS ARE COMING MY WAY

Good things are coming my way! One late night of watching T.V., I came across a motivational speaker. I dont remember his name or much of what he was talking about, but something he said has stuck with me and Im going to try to live by it for the coming year. This is what you do.... You tell yourself many times a day GOOD THINGS ARE COMING MY WAY!!! Anything and everything that comes into your life,you take a look at it and say to yourself "Oh, is this the good thing in my life?" The speaker said we miss alot of great oppertunities in our life because we just dont see them , or we are distracted by depression or sadness or just negetive self talk telling ourselves that nothing good can happen to us. So by looking at everything in a positive way and thinking good things are on the way, we will be sure to see the great oppertunities that will be coming into our life. 2009 will be a year that will have good things for all of us!!

This is a great way to look at our lives. It's like choosing to be happy. I never used to get that but I do now and love that saying. So "I choose to be happy". And GREAT THINGS ARE COMING MY WAY! Great things have always been coming my way . All I have to do is look at great friends like you to know that.

Amen to that! Sounds like a great idea. I know I do sometimes miss blessings because I get preoccupied or negative about other things. I love you, Lori! It was good to see you at Thanksgiving.

Thanks for reminding me. In the grand sceme of things, we have so much to be grateful for. Why should we ever think those blessings would stop. They are constantly being sent our way. I don't want to miss any of them. You are one of those great blessings in my life.
