After my post from yesterday I opened up my day timer only to discover my "QUOTES TO LIVE BY" list taped to the front inside cover.  More than once this little beauty has been able to do a complete 180 on my attitude.  I thought I'd share my list of inspiration with you:

"Be the kind of friend you want to have."

"Everyone is someone, make sure they feel like it"

"If our actions stem from honesty and kindness, then no matter what the result of our efforts, we have added something of value to our souls, and the world."

"The BEST is yet to come"

"Sometimes failures are simply opportunities to begin again, this time with more insight into what we really need to be successful."

"Success is not the key to happiness.  Happiness is the key to success!  If you love what you are doing, you will be successful." ALBERT SCHWIEITZER

"Everybody is a genius, but, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing it is stupid." ALBERT EINSTEIN

"Attitudes have the power to lift us up or tear us down."

"People will forget what you do for them.  People will forget what you said about them, but people will NEVER forget how you made them feel."

Obviously my goals for this year were to treat people better.  Most of them have to do with my having a more positive attitude.  I know we all have things that inspire us.  What is the one saying (or 2, or 5) that inspires you?  I hope you all have your cup full of sunshine today!
