next on the calendar: my birthday and new years.
today is my 33rd birthday and due to the fact i have SO much to be thankful for i am actually celebrating this year. in past years i have not really celebrated my birthday... i now realize because i didnt think there was anything to celebrate. grateful i can now see i have SO much to celebrate - life changing i tell you :o)
you may wonder, "what are you so thankful for? what is there to celebrate?"
- my son and how amazing he is
- how far i have come emotionally and mentally (in the last couple of years)
- my family and all they do for my son and i
- friends who have been through hell and back with me
- the amazing new man in my life (he makes me feel beautiful... special)
- my dogs and their unconditional love
- my business growing
- life!
it is so easy to focus on the negatives in life, but it is so rewarding to find the positive we DO have in our lives.

some quotes i would like to share with you...

"A strong positive attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug."
~ Patricia Neal
"Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us."
~ John N. Mitchell
"Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can't be done."
~ Bo Bennett
"The only disability in life is a bad attitude."
~ Scott Hamilton
"Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference
between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude."
~ William James
"Your attitude can take you forward or your attitude can take you down. The choice is always yours!"
~ Catherine Pulsifer
"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."
~ Winston Churchill
"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination."
and last, but not least...
"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.
It will make or break a company, a church, a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.
And so it is with you - we are in charge of our Attitudes."
~ Charles Swindoll
 i wish you all the best, and a very happy new year!
