A quote for today

I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.

— Martha Washington


I love this. This quote really speaks to my philosophy on life. I really believe that being happy or miserable is a choice. You can choose to be miserable when bad things happen to you or you can choose to look for the bright side or at the very least deal with them and move on. That is the reason I chose the name of my blog. I choose to have a good attitude. So, I smile.

Sorry if you were looking for me this morning. I didn't get up early enough this morning to post before I went to work. Some days, you just gotta hit that snooze button a couple of times.

Using the random number generator, yesterday's winners were #2 Mel, #9 Cheryl Wray, and #11 Whippet. Please email me at dettaowens@texasearch.com so I can send you something fun. I have yours, Jan. I will send it all at the end of the week.

I totally agree with your philosophy. My life's like a bad country song lately but I still try and have a happy spirit. Life's too short to be cranky. I refuse, and if I can't do it on my own, I pray for divine assistance!!!
