Have a Magnificent Day!


Turn Lemons Into Lemonade!

Life can bring powerful challenges that can cause you to lash out at yourself or others.

Keep your composure and share only positive, encouraging thoughts, words and actions.
One of the greatest lessons is learning how to deal with your own anger and moods.
A good friend shared this story with me years ago……

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. 
His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. 

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. 
Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.  He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.
He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.  The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.  The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. 
The fence will never be the same.  When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. 
You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. 
It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.”

A verbal wound can be as bad or even worse than a physical one.

“Everything said should be true, not everything true should be said.”

Dr. Henry Lieberman

“There is a nice way to say everything.”

Denise Papier

Your words should be used to heal, delight, inspire & prosper.

Friends are a very rare jewel indeed. 
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed;
they lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always open their hearts to us.

smiles,
:) Lee
