Hi everyone!

I'm feeling pretty upbeat these days and I had a notion that I would look up that thread about positive quotes, but I couldn't remember what it was called, I thought it was maybe titled "Affirmations", so I typed in "Affirmations" in the search box and it came up with a big fat zero, apparently we've never talked about affirmations beforeSurprised

Anyway, I have a couple of positive things that I regularly say to myself, but I really desperately want to be reminded about all the positive things other people say to themselves, someone had a really good Buddha quote but I can't remember it.

My positive thoughts to myself are:-

I choose to be happy.

I deserve to be loved and respected.

I am a kind, honest, decent person and I do no-one any harm. (I know I know, I wasn't before, but I am now!)

And I think someone has this in their little saying at the bottom of thier posts, and I really love it, it's something along the lines of ....

I can't change the direction of the wind but I can adjust my sails so I get to my destinationSmile

Has anyone get any more positive thoughts, I know you've got hundreds ClarityWink

Good to see you upbeat and positive! I am now officially peeved about the state of play with the board. Every day it changes. I can't seem to send pm's now, or new ones at least! And don't get me started on the phone issues! There defo was a long list of affirmations in the HL but it's all gone awol for now. One of my favourite mantra's is "Never say you have failed until you have reached your last attempt, and never say it's your last attempt until you have succeeded"

Hope you are psych-ing up for the ghost and ghouls and as our Brucie would say keeeeep dancin

Something tells me there may have been something in the way of a positive affirmation awhile back (maybe I even started one?) anyway, it is wonderful to have this!! It is just what I needed to read today. Seems that many of my friends in RL are really struggling in their M's, relationships, etc. We all need to be reminded to keep our thoughts in the positive direction. :) Thanks so much, SoGladitsanewday!!
