Open your curtains, turn down the thermostat, unplug the technology , make your day brighter and go outside to play. Whether you have children or not taking a journey outside can easily brighten your day. I know sometimes it's hard to look at the bright side of life when everything seems so dark, but if you look for these small glimmers of light you'll find that they lead to one large spotlight. YOU.
We create our outlooks by our own intensions. Its hard to believe that if we intend to live happily it will just happen, but think about it. If we dwell on the things that don't go our way and forget how much we would appreciate what we originally desired, the negative is sure to shine through. My goal is only to gain an interest in making our surroundings positive. Our beautiful town has a potential like no other. Our community has the privilege of being on the shore of one of the worlds most beautiful rivers. Why then do we not take advantage of this? Why not have an annual celebration of the beauty in what we have. This would create many opportunities for our community.
