We all have a choice of how our day will take form.  At times we do not have control on some unpleasant events that takes place or news we receive.  We do have control on how we react and interact with others.  How you emotionally take control is a true statement to your character.  Sunshine spreads, it uplifts, gives purpose and makes you not only a great family member, friend, but professional.  Would you rather be in the presence of beautiful positive people or lifeless, stale, and flat out negative ones?  Next time you have a choice, think before reacting.  Tone it down, be pleasant and deal with the situation in a positive manner in the moment of blow up.  Just remember you will move past the moment and how you deal with your disappointment, anger will be noticed by all.  Would you rather be remembered for being a positive force or one others will avoid?  You have a choice, make it a good one.

GOOD MORNING CONNIE!  Beautiful words for today!  A friend of mine will enjoy this post. In any situation, especially when she is posed with a challenging or emotional question, she pauses and says nothing for a couple minutes. She uses those minutes to gather her thoughts and checks the tone of her voice before she speaks!  Often, I've had to break the silence and ask, "Did you hear me?"!  And she will respond, "Yes, I am just making sure I don't sound mad when I respond!" -- Gab

Connie ! - If I ever thought I liked and connected with you before today - well this post confirms it 100% !

I am soo with you with regards to the choices we can make. Especially when it comes to how many people allow their emotions to dictate - and often upset or ruin - their days !!!

I hope that people feel that I am like you - someone who they enjoy having around because they know that I am always a glass half full guy, and love to see the smiles in almost every situation.

...this one spoke to me loud and clear my friend !

Cheers !


... oh and I apologize I'm only getting to it on Saturday, but business has been booming, and my little one has been somewhat demanding for a 2 week old !!!lol  ...have a great weekend !
