     Nothing is more important than a positive attitude. For years I’ve studied the effects of ‘self-talk’ ~ what we say to ourselves ~ and let’s face it . . . we wouldn’t talk to our best friends the way we talk to ourselves.

     I firmly believe ‘attitude is a choice’ . . . and that is how I live each day. I wasn’t always so positive . . . but be sure I am now. I have used many aids to teach myself how to create a positive attitude in my thoughts and actions. I believe a smile can be heard over a phone . . . just try sounding angry while you’re smiling!
     So, if you wake up and feel a bit ‘cranky’ or ‘under the weather’ . . . choose to smile and change your day around. You’ll find it becomes habit. People will comment on how you’re always happy and refreshing to be around. That encourages you to be even happier . . . cheerier . . . your smile becomes a part of you ~ and everyone around you. Positive attitude is a win-win.
     Recently I’ve come across a fabulous tool to keep that positive attitude in my office . . . a daily habit that is exciting. What am I reading?

    In this concise yet information-packed book - which you can listen to on the enclosed CD or read at your leisure - bestselling author Louise L Hay shows you that 'you can do it' - that is, change and improve virtually every aspect of your life by understanding and using affirmations correctly. Well known for her positive affirmations, Louise explains that every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. Many of your own thoughts are merely habitual and learned from childhood - they may work well for you but you will also have thoughts creating experiences you don't want. You can learn how to eliminate these and replace with affirmations to give you the confidence to attain the wonderful, joy-filled life you deserve.

Power Thought Cards (Beautiful Card Deck)
Louise Hay

    These are fabulous cards . . . and I can hardly wait to start each day with a random affirmation card.  Affirmations are the best tool you can use to teach yourself positive 'self-talk' and a possitive attitude.  Each day - place a card in an obvious place . . . where it will reaffirm you all day long. 
    A card a day sends a smile and positive feelings your way!

Funny you should ask...and mention cards in the same post. I just finished reading Dark Knight, and I was enthralled the entire way through. I left a review on Amazon, and this is definitely a 5-star read because I read the book in one day, couldn't leave it sit for more than fifteen minutes before I was back at it. The ancient medicine cards is something I doubt anyone else would have dreamed up as a plot line, and it was magnificent!

yo, girlfriend... did you mean DARK SPIRT?? I knew you were reading it ... and wow...what an incredible 'review' you gave it on Amazon. Thank you so much. Glad you liked the medicince cards. I had a set ... but didn't want to infringe on the author ... with plagerism and all that' ... so I just made up my own to fit the book. Makes me feel good you liked them. :) smilin' Rita
