To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
– Christian D. Larson
Wonderful words can have an even greater impact when they are set to a tune. Pay attention to how you feel and what your body tells you as you listen to your favorite music. Whether you desire a jump start or a trip to the emotional dungeon, music can hasten the journey.

Maybe the most important message is that whatever you do and whoever you are – if you really want to make a dent in the world – you have to sing your own song … most likely it is already playing in your head. If it is the wrong song, change the channel or input a new one. : )
– Songs I sing and have no idea why….now worth another look…even when they are dedicated to someone else. Just one example: – You are my Sunshine. Have a wonderful Day! – (Sung by Elizabeth Mitchell) Another version on The O Brother Soundtrack.
