The Sweetest Thing...

I must confess that I am hooked on this Shiba Inu Puppy Cam.  These puppies are so cute and I just laugh and feel good when I see them play with each other.  They are also fun to watch as they sleep!  Take a peek and you will see!  It is live and at times it does go off air.

I love this book, 1001 Ways to Relax by Mike George.  I was thinking about the upcoming holidays and how stressful things can be this time of year.  Let me share one of his thoughts for dealing with stress and emotions:

"Take the Optimistic Approach.  According to psychological research, optimists adopt a specific 'explanatory style' when interpreting the events that happen to them, attributing positive events to their own abilities and seeing negative events as isolated instances of bad luck. This approach bolsters self-esteem and peace of mind, giving those who practice it greater resilience and ability to cope with difficult situations."

Have a blessed day!
