"Don't be afraid to go out on a limb...that's where the fruit is …The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else." -- E. E. Cummings

"Insist on yourself. Never imitate" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

A List of positive affirmations:
• I deserve to be happy and successful
• I have the power to change myself
• I can forgive and understand others and their motives
• I can make my own choices and decisions
• I am free to choose to live as I wish and to give priority to my desires
• I can choose happiness whenever I wish no matter what my circumstances
• I am flexible and open to change in every aspect of my life
• I act with confidence having a general plan and accept plans are open to alteration
• It is enough to have done my best

Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast.
-Norman Vincent Peale

Wonderful, wonderful quotes here. I really got lost in this post, realizing how important it is to be happy. I particularly enjoyed the e.e.cummings quote, which I haven't head in quite awhile. Thank you for reminding me of it!

Hello Positively Present :)
Your most welcome!

I so agree with you...I forget as well how important it is...We loss Dad last yr. to cancer and having that wake-up call reminded me how short life is...and how VERY important is to be happy - to live each day to the fullest with JOY!

Such a powerful quote by E.E. Cummings :)

Cheers & Hugs!
