Today I thought I would share just a few simple thoughts I've found in "Stick a Geranium in Your Hat and Be Happy" by Barbera Johnson. I haven't read the entire book yet but some of these extra thoughts at the end of her chapters really stick with me!
RESOLUTIONS FOR AVOIDING MISERY
Choose to love- rather than hate.
Choose to smile- rather than frown.
Choose to build- rather than destroy.
Choose to persevere- rather than quit.
Choose to praise- rather than gossip.
Choose to heal- rather than wound.
Choose to give- rather than grasp.
Choose to act- rather than delay.
Choose to forgive- rather than curse.
Choose to pray- rather than despair.
Life is easier than you think-
All you have to do is:
Accept the impossible,
Do without the indispensable,
Bear the intolerable
Be able to smile at anything.
We do not understand:
Joy... until we face sorrow,
Faith... until it is tested,
Peace... until faced with conflict,
Trust... until we are betrayed,
Love... until it is lost,
Hope... until confronted with doubts.
Have a great week!
