Raise Your Thoughts

I am Janice Clark - a mom, a wife, a homemaker, a retired teacher, a writer, an advocate for kindness, a child of God. I try to live by the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated. It's such a simple concept and yet, at the same time, difficult for many.

Realizing that I am a soul in a human body experiencing this life on Earth enables me to forgive myself when I get off-track. What's good about that is I can also forgive those who have hurt me along the way. We are all but human and err. Get over it. Apologize and do better.

There is so much joy to be had. It's actually a choice. You can be grumpy or happy. Which one brings a smile? It's a no brainer, right? There's enough global unrest prevailing these days. Why add gloom? Check out the poem on my News Items page. Now that's worth some of our energy!

In my book, Breathe In the Joy , I make a reference to the song Accentuate the Positive ... Give it a little hum. It's contagious, and practical, and fun. We all need a fun factor in our lives. Find yours and go for it.

Drop in again. I will be starting a blog page if February. Perhaps I'll hit a topic of interest to you. Meanwhile stay well and keep smiling.
