A Quote to Ponder

“What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.”
-----As written by Maya Angelou for Success

I came across this quote on another blog and it really struck me. If I could follow this one bit of advice, it would change my life in so many ways. If everybody lived by this advice, the world would be a much happier place.

One more from Rhonna's 21 Day Challenge.
"Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times." ---Anonymous

Wow. You MUST be reading my mind. LOL. I was going to start changing somethings in my life starting on Easter. You know, a bit of a rebirth of myself. I am printing that quote out and sticking it on my fridge. To remind me not to snack and not to complain about it either.

I think this falls under that old saying "easier said than done", but if we don't at least try, then what kind of person are we? What kind of world would it be? So I am with you....stay focused, stay strong, stay positive.

I love me some Maya! I'm going to see her speak next month, and I just found out my tickets are in the FRONT ROW!!! I am so excited.
That is a great quote. Brilliant!

I really like that quote. One of my favorite is
"The hardest part isn't finding what we need to be, but being content with who we are" I always have liked that one too :)

If I could really live that quote I'd be a much happier person!
