All Good Things


I love this proverb and it’s really something I try to strive for.

I try to see the positive in all things and people. ( Some would say that’s naive.)

I believe in the benefit of the doubt, in the glass half full and things happening for a reason.

I definitely believe we should love more and not hate. What’s the point in it? Hate is exhausting.

I’d much rather give and receive love.

And I believe a smile can cure many ills.

So, smile… :)

  6. Very well said! I love this, it should be framed and hung on a wall! I especially like “talk less, say more” – I can be a chatterbox and that line reminds me to think before I speak :)

  9. I too believe it the power of the “glass half full” theory. I also think that when you keep your mind positive, things really do start to reflect more positively all around. Great Quote Susi!
