I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

Positive Thinking

Life is beautiful and I know that for sure!

I have been through a struggle.

Sometimes I feel as if I am still stuck in that struggle, in some parts of my life.

  • Why do I feel that way?

On certain days I feel good and happy and on other days I feel like I can't do this anymore.

Time has passed by too fast and the years to me is like a few.

  • It is not like I had known what will be but then again who really knew?

I did not come this far to look back and walk away. I came this far to go further with my great strengths.

So much has slipped by me and I feel like there is no end to what I have to face up to.

  • Do you sometimes feel that way too?

My daily activities keep me busy. I try to keep fit with brisk walking and at times I don't want to walk.

Though my body remains tired for days I still manage to push myself up and get on with my tasks.

If the weather does not get me down another obstacle gets in the way, but I don't let that make me give up on my plans.

I try my best to get passed all obstacles with ease and with my own thoughts.

I don't see it any other way just with my own mind.

Those who pretend to be friendly I don't care about.

I focus my life on my loved ones and on myself.

My positive thoughts lead me on daily to better ideas.

I am only human and I face up to what I know is best for me in the longer run.

Life is not always what you plan it to be.

  • I hope and pray that my life will get better for many reasons:

I only want what I have always dreamed of in Croatia.

What always seems to be is not just what you think it is but often you are not sure what will be of it.

I assume and re-assume but don't always know.

There are always surprises and the challenges that I am faced with but I chose to go with the flow.

I have a positive attitude toward life because my daily life in Croatia has taught me to be that way and more.

I have forgiven and have moved on.

I have too much going for me than to sit by and think of what did not work out.

The past stays there and the present is most important to me.

I do well for others and avoid conflict.

  • Life is what you make of it.

If you choose to be miserable then you end up staying miserable.

Enjoy life don't dwell on what will never be.

I did not dwell in my past I did not get over my past life for a while after my prompt stay in Croatia.

Time healed me but off-course the healing will never be complete like a wound that keeps on re-opening and hurting each time.

I believe that if I don't do something for me to make me happy nobody would do that for me.

I am old enough to think for myself and do for me.

I don't speak of something and don't do it. When I talk, I do.

I am not a procrastinator.

  • Do you think acceptance is a huge part of ones' life?

If you don't accept you forever will live in sadness.

Acceptance avoids sadness and brings in more happiness.

Your heart feels better and knows that you can live with what you want to.

  • Incredible isn't?

The word that describes how you feel and what you want from life.

It is simply you and simply incredible.

I am not able to go on without a smile I learned from my greater experiences.

I feel young at heart and energetic in my daily schedules.

When I get up positively I tend to work positively for the rest of the week. It is how you show attitude to each day. Get up with a smile and with great feelings to make each day a valuable one for you.

When you get up unhappy our day begins in a negative way.

You don't need negativity in your life.

Drift away into a life that you can slowly accept and live into.

Don't feel you can't do it or that you can't avoid that obstacle.

You are always able to pass the waves.

If you are hit by big waves you can come down crushed, but if you get right up again and continue to pass other waves that show determination.

When you are determined to do what you want to make your life a good one nothing can stop you from showing improvement.

  • Struggle shows you appreciation.

Try to beat the challenge freely with a positive outlook on life.

Great wisdom and great opportunities can show you many good parts in your life that you did not know about.

You won't always expect it but whatever is due to will come your way.

In time it will all work about for you.

  • Do you think life is a great challenge for you?

  • Did you think life is a smooth rolling coaster for you?

  • What was your most stressful moment?

  • How did you handle the hectic moments?

  • Do you get in a frenzy when in a crisis?

  • Do you remain calm in a crisis?

  • I think ahead and plan ahead.

I organize my daily activities as I see it and know with proper organization everything can go well as I have planned.

I prefer to keep a list of the most important schedules.

I tick off my chores as I go along an easy way to cope with my days ahead.

I don't ignore what needs attention.

I don't think about will bring me down but about of what will carry me up.

I don't think of others as idiots if they have tried and failed but think of them as those of great individuals.

  • What or who makes you feel most encouraged?

I feel most encouraged when I am with positive people and when I am faced with greater challenges.

  • Do you think you are strong enough to face up to greater struggles?

I realized my strengths when I came to live in Croatia I think my previous life was taken for granted.

I did not see my strengths or weaknesses in my past life.

A foreign country opened my eyes to another kind of life.

  • Why did I not see past life in this way?

My very easy standard of living did not give me the chance of looking at life in any other way.

My very comfortable living in the past allowed to me to only see what I knew and no more.

From one life to another but with much more learned over the years.

I enjoy learning, reading, knowing more about life, and helping those who don't know.

I often meet different people and learn more about the places they come from; and that enlightens me of another part of the world of which I did not of.

I don't always browse on line in search of information. When in simple conversations I pick up more of what I need to know or of what I did not know from the past.

It makes me know that I am good at learning and helping others.

My time is never wasted when helping others. I feel good about myself when I help others in need.

I avoid wasting time on what I know is of no use to me. I am always thinking of something new to do and to be occupied with on a daily basis.

Be Positive

Handle your moments with calmness

What was your most stressful moment?

      It was wonderful to read this. So often we live our lives backwards, looking in the rearview mirror. We tend to constantly review what could have been instead of looking forward to create the life that should be. I enjoyed reading your thoughts about life and how to best live it.

      Great photo as well. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      Hi DDE, Sounds interesting. You need to maintain your way of life through faith. Walk with the Lord daily, 24 hrs. per day so that you won't look back but allow him to lead you according to His Will. He has a divine purpose for you to serve. Thank you for sharing the beauty around you whether it rains or not. :-)

      Life is what we make it. I believed for instance that happiness is a choice and so, we always have a choice on how to take life. Like you, I go with the flow but when things doesn't cooperate, we also have to learn how to go against the wind. That way, we'll arrive safe and sound.

      I like your positive attitude. Keep it up.

      I treat my past in the manner of a digital camera,if I recall something unhappy or hurtful I delete it,- and move on to a nicer thought. { I treat people I do not like in the same way} if the memory is a good one I savor it like I would savor a beautiful photograph. Know yourself be happy with yourself and your positive attitude will win through. Voted up,interesting and useful
