We have the opportunity on the daily to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Whether one goes through their day searching for good deeds to be done,
or simply takes advantage of random opportunities to spread love,
every action (or inaction) has a resounding impact.
The question is: Is your impact today going to be positive, negative, or indifferent?
I have been told that one person can't make a difference.
I affectionately call these people "dummies"...
Those who actively try to hold the rest of us down,
those who would rather watch you drown than help you soar, those who can't grasp the power of positivity to create change.
Whether it's a great recipe found, or an uplifting story to share, you can be sure to find it here.
Let's start a Positivity Revolution, and drown out the dumb!


This is what I'm talking about, people! What a simple way to spread positivity, within yourself and around your being.

This is a movement promoting positive thought and action:
1) Sign up at http://100happydays.com/,
2) Share pictures via your preferred form of social media a single happy moment each day for 100 days in a row,
3) And feel the happy...
They claim most folks who begin this project won't finish because they don't have enough time!(How silly and kind of sad...)

I am going to accept this challenge, and should complete in mid-October 2014.
Please enjoy this collection of my happy moments over the next 100 days!

The drive to and from work is always terrifying, mostly because Ohio drivers are terrible!
This morning I was tailgated, almost hit, nearly missed my exit, and started seeing red.
I realized that I had a decision: either follow this path and start my day super angry,
or take a deep breath and realize that I do not have control over other's actions, but I certainly have control over my reaction.

arrived at work safely,
