Find something you like and make it your own.

Enjoy natural beauty


I'll tell you how the sun rose,
A ribbon at a time.
The steeples swam in amethyst,
The news like squirrels ran.
The hills untied their bonnets,
The bobolinks begun.
Then I said softly to myself,
"That must have been the sun!"
-Excerpt from a poem by Emily Dickinson

If you're healthy and you know it clap your hands

This is the modified version ... if you're healthy and you know it clap your hands.  

Love the health level that you have now!

Change and be happy

If you don’t like something, change it.  If you can’t change it, change your attitude.  Don’t complain.

To stay afloat

Hard times get you down?  
Develop a mantra.

Mine: Just keep swimming.

Not only does it contain the "staying above water" reference that motivates me to hang on, it is also a reminder to exercise (Endorphins!) and get out (Sun!).

Portland was the place

I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom 
for me and you.

And I think to myself, 
what a wonderful world.
