Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Today’s Positive Thought

Sunrise   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  This is a favorite.

“Finish every day and be done with it.  You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.  This day is all that is good and fair.  It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterday.”

Friday

Friday is here and for most of us we are at the end of the work week.  With the transforming of ourselves into the “weekender” plans are made for our relaxation and enjoyment be it with others or by our self.  We bid the past week and all of its absurdities and unique experiences adieu and move on. 

Have an enjoyable weekend filled with surprising and unexpected good.

Time To Laugh

The time to laugh is now.  At times we forget to have a really good belly laugh. 

Laughter is healing, as Norman Cousins wrote in his book, Anatomy Of An Illness.

   When was the last time you laughed at joke, at something you did or saw, or to yourself about some faux pas you or someone else made?

We all have so much going on in our life that we may be consumed and preoccupied with situations/conditions that can stress us out.  Time to step back when we feel overwhelmed by “things” and laugh.  Laughter releases stress and other good things into our mind and body.  Laughing is good for us, it lightens the load.  Why not watch a comedy that makes you laugh, we all have our favorites, be it a movie or television series.  One favorite a friend has are reruns of Laugh In from decades ago with Rowan and Martin.  When I really need a laugh I pop in a favorite comedy movie or read George Carlin.      

A friend of ours is a stand up comedienne and has performed all over the country.  It is such a pleasure to be with her as she always has a joke to tell, points out some absurdity going on or comments on the ridiculousness going on in the world.  The smile on her face and her ability to make us smile and laugh is priceless.  A visit to her neck of the woods is something we look forward to and enjoy to the max.  I’m sure you have someone who brightens you up when you get together with their smile and joking around, etc.    

Taking care of yourself and being successful go hand in hand.  Laugh and enjoy the day as it will have a very positive and direct impact on your outlook, your dealings with others and your life.

“I will laugh at the world…And so long as I can laugh never will I be poor…Only with laughter and happiness can I truly become a success.  Only with laughter and happiness can I enjoy the fruits of my labor…To enjoy success I must have happiness and laughter…” Og Mandino   

Laughing is good medicine for the mind and the body.  Trust me.

Saturday

   Enjoy the day with family and friends.

Kick up your heels and dance the night away or at least part of it, or just toe tap to the beat of the music.    

Laugh at the absurdities and smile at the rest. 

Perhaps it is merely a whimsical day in which to play.
