Friday Frills




Today you can choose to count your blessings...or you can count your troubles. 
Today you can live for each moment...or you can throw this time away. 

Today you can take action towards your goals...
or you can procrastinate. 
 
Today you can plan for the future...or you can live in the past. 

Today you can learn one new thing...
or you can stay the same. 
 
Today you can seek new possibilities...
or you can overwhelm yourself with the impossible. 

Today you can continue to move forward...
or you can chose to quit. 
 
Today you can take steps towards resolving your challenges...
or you can let them consume you. 

Today you can hold onto resentment...or you can just let things go.
Today you can find the positives in every failure...or you can choose to see the shortcomings in every success.

All the choices are up to you in deciding what you do today. 
Make it worth your while.

Hi Same! I've missed talking to you and reading your happy posts so much, I've only been able to get to town once a week for internet service so I've been really bad about keeping up. I applogize so much for my absence but it is lovely get read through your Friday Frills post. I still have a couple of them I have printed out to remind me to stay positive and be happy what for I do have in life.
Hah, I think this post really speaks to me today though, I need to start working harder on not putting things off! I hope all is well with you dear and thank you so much for your kind words the other day. :)

I've had recently one of them but I've decided not to stop but go further:) Oh, and I love this picture especially those stripes with red pants! Its cool!!!! Especially for us living in this part of the world:) Summer is just on the corner:)

Morning Sam!:) Hope your Friday is kicked off well! Love today's quote as every week. I think today is the perfect day to act, not tmw or regretting the past, just now! We are alive and this is enough to always move on and write new chapters of our life! It only depends from us: we can choose to be happy today or keep to moan about the past. We have the control to change life and make it prosperous, no one else got this power, the key is to be sure of our skills and decide what really makes us happy:) Thanks for stopping by dear, actually I havent tried any pair of Manolo's so far, what a shame!:) It is onto my wishlist, but I think isnt a comfy shoes at all..as they say: if you pretty want appear, a little must suffer!:P Kisses dear, have a lovely day! xo

Denise said...

Oh Sam, as usual... the right words at the right time! I am feeling very ill today, what I think is more about my soul, but my body is giving me the alert... so what you wrote "today you can plan the future or live in the past" was soooo well addressed to me! Thank you very much again, for that, and I wish you have a great week! I like to write when I am inspired, so as soon as I am, I'll love to write an email!

My favorite bit of this had to be, "Today you can find the positives in every failure...or you can choose to see the shortcomings in every success." Definitely something I've gotta learn to do! Lovely post, Sam. You always pick the best quotes and things to say about 'em. :)
