A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery, while on a detour.
Every cloud has a silver lining ~ as the proverb goes.
Is the cup half full or half empty?
A pessimist says " the cup is half empty " and an optimist says " it's half full."
The longer I live the more I realize the impact of a good attitude and a positive outlook on life.
Life is full of so much beauty, from the small child, a smiling face, a kind elderly person.
Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive, enjoy the day live life to the fullest, make the most of what you have.
Quote ~ Horace ( Ancient Roman poet.)
I have recently read Michael J Fox's latest book ~ Always Looking Up.
Struck with Parkinson's, a debilitating degenerative disease, at the height of his fame Michael J Fox has taken what some might consider cause for depression and turned into a beacon of hope for millions.
He writes with warmth, humour and incredible honesty about his journey. He says "it may be one step forward and two steps back, but after a time with this disease, I've learned that what is important is making that one step count ~ Always looking up!
You have to love this Guy and admire his courage and optimism.
We have a long weekend here in NZ ~ so looking forward to it!
It is Labour weekend and we have a holiday on Monday so will be great to spend some time in the garden and doing some of the chores on the list.
After having being away the past two weekends, home seems like a lovely place to be.
I hope you are all well.
Have a wonderful weekend
