The Power of Prayer, Words & Predictions

Looking for Things to Smile About

“I actually look for things to smile about.
If I’m going to a concert later that night and I start to feel in a bad mood,
I think about the wonderful melodies I’ll be hearing later. I make a conscious effort to be positive.
And if you want the most joie de vivre in your life, that’s what you must do as well.
Negative thoughts will pop into your head, as they do to me and everybody.
But why give in to those thoughts and allow your mood to be dragged downward?
My suggestion is to fight off the temptation to go negative and work at being positive.
Try it out and see what happens. I’m willing to bet you find the experience worth repeating again and again.”
~ Dr. Ruth Westheimer,
Sex Therapist, Media Personality,
Actress, Voice Actress & Author

Recognizing the Responsibility

“So I had to be careful. I recognized the responsibility that, whether I liked it or not,
I had to accept whatever the obligation was. That was to behave in a manner,
to carry myself in such a professional way, as if there ever is a reflection, it’s a positive one.”
