~ When Times Are Tough....~

~~I stumbled upon this wonderful piece. Hope you enjoy it, it is pretty profound .....

W ~ Whatever you believe creates your reality. Believe that life is a positive experience & it will be.

A ~ Attitude is the magic word. Your greatest asset is your attitude. Be positive regardless.

T ~ Together everyone achieves more. There are no limits to what we can accomplish together. I am more than I am but less than we are.

E ~ Enthusiasm is the wellspring of life. There is no limit to what can be accomplished with enough enthusiasm.

R ~ Respect yourself, as well as others. When you begin to respect yourself, your whole world changes.

M ~ Make commitments, not excuses. There is overwhelming power in words 'Yes I will'.

E ~ Everyday can be a fun day. Fun is the lubricant that keeps life moving forward. Laugh a lot.

L ~ Love is the answer. Whatever the question, Love is the answer. It's the greatest force in the universe.

O ~ One day at a time. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. All of life happens in increments of one.

N ~ Never give up or become a victim. You are guaranteed to lose if you give up. If you give up, Winston Churchill was right, 'Never, never, never give up.' It works if you work it.

Watermelon is fun, inspirational & a great reminder for us to always live life from our highest self.
