I have decided to make a very conscious effort to focus on all of the positive things in my life. And even on my worst day, there still has to be one thing that made me smile or made me feel good. It might be a thought, an event or even a phone call. Most of my entries will be brief - a "feel good moment", if you will! Please feel free to leave any comments you have (unless they're bad - there is no negativity allowed here!).

The thing that made me happy today was hearing my daughter's AP exam scores and knowing that all of the hard work she put into those courses has paid off.

Sometimes we wonder if something is worth the effort - it's nice to get the validation.

The thing that made me happy today was getting a phone call from a friend who was on vacation and heard a song that made her think of me.

I love it when I'm driving by myself and hear a song on the radio that reminds me of someone - I'm sure that there is a big smile on my face during those songs.

The thing that made me happy today was learning that someone took my advice.

We are often asked for our opinion or advice about something.  It's nice to know when someone actually thinks your advice is good enough to act on it.
