Weekend Wishes.....

Hello My Sweet Friends!! Thank the good Lord, it is Friday ☺
If you have read my blog more than once, you know I am a positive & happy girl.
If your new here, I AM A HAPPY GO LUCKY type girl.
I always leave with a kind word.
Compliment alot. {even when I shouldn't, ha!}
I am always smiling.
I am usually laughing.
I am always find the sliver lining.
I speak to strangers. {probably too much!}
I just try to be a light in a dark place.

I find it "strange" when people are negative and unhappy.
I actually try not to be in the company of the negative "Debbie Downers."
I have come to the conclusion that: "Those who can't, criticize!"
I am not saying I have the fairy tale life y'all but it is what you make it, in a sense. A positive attitude can turn many things in new directions!

I love quotes. When I had my personal FB page, 95% of my updates were positive quotes. That is how each day was started off around here & I always shared it with my children.
 {I try to be the person I want my kids to be}
I wish that I had gone back through them all & saved some before deleting it b/c I have a ton.

I think it's a little easier to start off & end each day with a smile & positive word, don't you?
I love this quote: "Always be nice, NOT because they are BUT because you are"
Here is to a blessed weekend......

{PS: I will be back Sunday to post a recipe. I love to cook & am always looking for new recipes. If you'd be interested in doing a recipe 1 day blog hop swap type thing, vote at the top right. Once I get a few un willing participants, I will blog the details, probably do it the last weekend of this month}

  2. Daph, What a great entry and what truth! I'm much like you, there's just no room in our lives for negativity. Life is just too short not to smile, laugh, and enjoy, even in the midst of strife and chaos. Of course, some days I really have to put my "big girl panties" on to keep on keeping on. :o)

    Thanks for blessing my Friday morning!

  3. Have a fabulous weekend gorgeous!


  4. Oh, I needed this post this morning. I'm the same way...I try to be positive all the time, even when things are tearing at my heart & soul. What's the saying...you get further with sugar than vinegar, or something like that! Anyhoo, Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. My favorite Post yet! We are so much alike, I sure wished you lived closer. My favorite quote that I use often: "Expectations are planned resentments." Have a wonderful weekend and I will be right here on Sunday with a recipe ready to go!

  6. just what i needed on a gray friday morning. it's a good thing i walked out to the mailbox (thankfully, i didn't see anyone… the "for sale" signs would go up around the neighborhood for sure!) because i never would have noticed how warm it is this morning (67 in knoxville at 8am!!) or heard the birds chattering in the trees.
    life really is about the little blessings! thanks for a wonderfully cheery friday post! hope you have a fantastically blessed weekend!

  7. Love the positivity....we all need a little positive re-enforcement and you are always there to give it. Great selection of quotes...hope you have a great weekend :)

  8. Great post. If think postive attitudes make for happy people. I even times are tough, a postive attitude will make your load a little lighter.

  9. My sweet friend, your post is so true .. since I started ending my day by writing in my gratitude journal (it's the last thing I do before turning in for the night)I feel it has been helping me to stay closer to God and be more appreciative of life!!! Wishing you a fabulous weekend..xo HHL

  18. awesome post girl!! I love how positive and inspiring it is!! I find that it is much easier for me to be positive and nice and happy than it is for me to be negative and mean. PLUS I try to make some random stranger smile every day -- I believe you can touch a LOT of people with a simple kind gesture =) I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  19. I may have to "borrow" a few of your quotes!

    Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  20. Oh Daphine your post today was just what I needed! How inspiring you are. I do know what you mean about some people always being angry. It is so much better to start your day this way, and I am sure your children appreciate it (maybe later of course).

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend!

  21. Love this post, Daph! I really needed to read something like this today!

    Have a blessed weekend!

  22. LOVE this post and I completely agree! Why be negative?? It is so much more easy to live optimistically! I love the quote about the little things being the big things :) So true! Thanks! Have a great weekend!

  23. I just adore quotes--especially happy and inspirational ones like these. I always covered my locker and binders with them in school. I'll have to find places to put them now that I no longer have those options. ;)

  24. have a wonderful weekend! :)

  25. I love that Taylor Swift quote and I really need to remember it myself. Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

  26. Such an awesome post, Daphne!! I love how positive and uplifting you always are. And you are definitely the girl described in the last quote/picture!

    Have a great weekend, friend!

    ps - LOVE the recipe idea!!

  27. Good for you on maintaining the positive outlook and attitude, it is part of what makes you such a delight. And, it is also contagious, we attract that which is like us, I really do believe that.

    Thank you for sharing the lovely quotes, all of them are wonderful. :)

    Happy weekend to you too!

  28. OMG...I have tears in my eyes. This was such a fantastic post and a wonderful reminder. It's so, so true.
