Monday Musing - Encouragment to Hang In There!

Some days we need all the encouragement and positive input we can get…it’s just the way life is.  We won’t wake up every day to a bowl of cherries free of pits.  I opened an email this morning that dealt on positive reinforcement quotes and thought I’d share a few here.  So take the ones you can build on if your day isn’t the best and work to get back on track. 

Here’s to a great week for all of us, even if it takes work to make it one! 

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." - Mary Ann Radmacher
"Anyone can give up; it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength." - Unknown
"When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if  you can look up, you can get up." - Les Brown
"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life." - Jean Shinoda Bolen 

Thank you to Amy Sherman, for having a newsletter today that I needed for encouragement.  Check out her newsletter at    Yes, her focus is on the 40+ group, but a lot of what she shares applies to all of us, no matter our age.

It takes hard work to have a positive attitude. There are days it would be so easy to let yourself be pulled down. To smile and put a happy tone in your voice when all you want to do is let the unhappy side of yourself take over for just a little while is sometimes difficult to resist. For the most part, I do great, but like everyone, once in a while that mood monster tries to give me a hug. So THANKS Lizzie, these quotes are great! Encouragement is an awesome tool to help bring sunshine into your world.

We all get visits from the "mood monster" Shonna. The encouragement from others is what helps me kick him out. Have a great day!
