Quotable Sunday

Today I am participating in Toni's Quotable Sunday. I am going through a lot of self healing and I think a majority of the progress comes from attitude, my quotes are based on attitude.

Carlos Castaneda:
The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.


This has been such an eye opener for me when I realized how much effort I was spending on making myself miserable. Step one is too learn that you do truly own the power to have a good day.


Helen Keller:
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.


This one is just a reminder to not get hung up on things we can not change and to roll with the punches. I do play the what if game a lot in my life and don't realize all the opportunities in front of me.

I like those, sometimes things are about perception and opportunities.
