All Good Things

June 18, 2012

 

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… ๐Ÿ™‚

    People should definitely smile more! The world would be a better place. Love the Swedish proverb. Will have to remember it.

    I am going to print this out and post it on my wall board. It says so much in so few words.

    I’m a huge believer in smiles and laughter. I love your positive attitude!

    • Susi June 19, 2012 at 9:16 am

      Thank you. I try very hard to be positive, it’s not always easy!

    If I didn’t smile and laugh, I’d be in a ditch somewhere. Seriously.

      Yup. I think, the more positive your attitude, the easier it is to deal with things in life.

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      I know, what you mean… I get caught up and tend to prattle on and on.

  • Harriet June 19, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Good reminder. It’s easy to spiral into the negative. I talk too much too Bee!

      Yes, that’s why I like this quote… as a reminder to keep thinking positive. I’m a big talker, too!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Exactly. Definitely, something to strive for!

  • Kate F. @katefineske June 20, 2012 at 8:40 am

    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!
