Sometimes it just takes a reminder to find that optimistic place again.

Got this as a Sparkpeople mailer today. Just when I needed it. I always get what I need when I need it.

A pocket is no place for a smile.

Letting your optimism out

We all have natural talents and abilities that we bring to any givensituation. Likewise our motivations are usually different as well. Someare motivated by money and success, others by a need for recognition,and still others by the simple satisfaction of doing a good job. Butwhat determines HOW you behave is your attitude. Positive people areoften respected, and others naturally gravitate towards them.Conversely, no one likes being around a chronic downer or someone whocomplains all the time. Next time someone says “Good morning,” reallyembrace the idea! No one can take away the good feelings you haveinside, so let them shine!
