I am grateful for...

Every night before bed, no matter what my husband and I take turns saying five things that we are grateful for about one another. It's nice to just focus on the two of us for a moment and it helps to remind us how much we love each other. Besides, who doesn't love a compliment?

Always look on the bright side.

I force myself to find something good in every single situation. I always point on the bright side to everything. Even when things are rough I make a point to be positive & happy. Even if you have to fake it the more you do it the more optimistic you become.

Happiness...

I can't say this is MY mantra, but I do have it posted in front of me on my computer monitor.
I found this in SparkPeople, and now read it every day:
"The secret to happiness is not to get what you want, but to want what you have."
"Happiness is not a destination; it's a way of life."
