Things I Tell Myself Posted on March 13, 2014 by kathryningrid …and whatever you do, think of your glass as half full. You’ll tolerate your self-criticism better, put it to more positive use, and still remain thirsty for truth, goodness and happiness.

Thank you, my sweet! 🙂
Ah good philosophy! We all know these things, but sometimes have to step back and acknowledge them. One thing I would add – you are the only person who has the power to make you happy.
Absolutely true! I realize (having been there myself in times past) that there are times when some people are—whether biologically or situationally or chemically or for whatever reason—unable to make the necessary Choice to pursue happiness, let alone to *Do* it, but for the vast majority of us in the vast majority of times, we should be constantly conscientious about working to be happy. And I would add, too, that that very act of will can be contagious. 🙂
You are definitely a glass half full person. I love the pics and the sentiments here. They always cheer me up in the morning. 😀
Sometimes I’m just a half full-of-it person! But I’m nearly always an optimist, cockeyed or not. 😀 xo!
Kath, I could do with you telling me a few things.
Have a beautiful happy day.
🙂 Mandy xo
Much of my generally joyful attitude comes from surrounding myself with people who make me feel joyful, and you are a star among them, my darling Mandy! xoxoxo!
And as you give a pep talk to yourself, Kathryn, you do to others! I love the full-length mirror in the heart concept! Choices are always before us – especially as it affects our happiness, productivity and attitude that, of course, affects most everything. Isn’t it magical how spilling gratefulness and positivity fills every glass that ‘listens’ a little closer to its brim? Thank you and blessings, my friend! XO ♥
I know from our conversations that you and I have the same attitude about the multiplication potential in shared happiness! Thank you for adding to *my* daily dose yet again, sweet Diane!
