Eliminate Drama

I have a friend that I used to work with a few years ago. For some reason, we clicked - able to laugh a lot, talk about the kids, just smart women who got to know each other. This blog post is from her Facebook page. Makes perfect sense to me! Thanks to 'The Rose'.

No Drama!!! Keep your drama out of my life!!! There comes a time in life when you have to let go of
all the pointless drama and the people who create it and surround
yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the
bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be
anything but happy.

Life Philosophy of Charles Schulz

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.

You don't have to actually answer the questions.  Just read straight through, and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.  These are no second-rate achievers.
They are the best in their fields.  But the applause dies..
Awards tarnish.
Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners..

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!!
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.


The lesson:
The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials..
The most money...or the most awards.
They simply are the ones who care the most.

Right in Front of You

The Solution

Sometimes what we are looking for is standing right there in front of us.  Funny situation I found myself in, my 17 year old son decided that mom needed a pep talk...and guess what?  He gave me the talking to of my life - about how to be a winner, think like a winner, how going through obstacles makes us stronger.  He was simply amazing.

Don't look too far for support and solutions
 -they are usually right there in front of you!

Get the Best from Others with Your Positive Attitude

Ever have a day when the whole house is in a bad mood because one person is in a bad mood? Or it’s a bad day at work, because the boss is having a bad day? Our attitude is reflected in those around us. To get the best from the people around you, start with a fresh and positive attitude and try the following:

• Turn negative thoughts into positive thoughts – your own or those of others
• Keep a ‘grateful list’ and add something to it everyday
• Look for the bright side of every situation
• Help someone in a time of need
• Say ‘Good Morning’ and mean it
• Push yourself through tough situations
• Smile

It only takes one positive action to change your attitude and the attitude of those around you – do one thing every day to make your attitude a positive one.
