Saturday, October 13th: Too happy to permit the presence of trouble … October is POSITIVE ATTITUDE MONTH. This month is dedicated to establishing, boosting or forcing ourselves to adopt positive attitudes and discovering and/or creating positive self-images. The month was originally sponsored by Sylvia Henderson, of Springboard Training.

Are you in need of an ‘attitude adjustment’? Check out this site where they share five tips to implement for 21 days to a positive attitude habit.


Perhaps one of my own personal favorites is The Optimist Creed. (Yes, there is an Optimist club!) The creed is recited at every weekly meeting. The words are good to apply to every day of our lives, inspiring a more positive attitude and life.

The Optimist Creed (by Christian D. Larson)

Promise Yourself – To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Happy Positive Attitude Month!

      Thanks! Yes, I loved it when I saw it too. I TRY to focus on the positive (some days don’t work as well as others LOL) But the more I look for the positive and try to at least minimize my negativity, my life keeps getting better.
      Have a great day!
